I was taught to be a good girl. I can’t tell you how many times I heard statements that began with either “Good girls don’t do…” or “Good girls do…” So much so that it became ingrained. To top it off I went to church a lot. I developed a healthy fear of a God that would strike me dead if I did anything wrong. Thus, I tried to do everything right. For Santa Claus, until I found out he wasn’t real. And always to keep that strike of lightening at bay. Until I began to notice how many people were doing, without impunity, all of the things that I wanted to do. So I took my life into my own hands and dared to do a thing that I’d been told was wrong. And I lived. And I learned. My higher power does not judge me for what I do or don’t do, what I wear or don’t wear—I am judged by who I am inside. So today, I do just whatever I want to do. So does Johnny Depp! View the following:
