I owe my soul to no one.
I will not be led by forces outside myself.
It matters not their position, their weight, or pre-supposed authority.
I am sovereign to myself.
I hand my power over to no one.
I react to no fool, nor to foolish behavior.
I write my own tune and play my own song.
I accept that joy is my birthright.
I gratefully claim this gift as mine.
How then could it matter to me if you choose to dither in remorse and regret?
I love you still, but I will not be a party to your "woe is me."
