They say that I shouldn’t hate.
They told me that it was unhealthy.
That it would return to me, and everyone would dislike me.
Yet I can’t help but feel the least bit annoyed when you don’t get the message.
My life does not circle on your commitments.
I have my own.
I adjust around the time of a ton of people.
Can’t you adjust around mine?
I never hate on you for not being available.
So please don’t hate on me for not being able to make it.
Don’t tell me to trash my other commitments because I won’t.
You know that very well, and no amount of pressure from you will ever convince me to do so.
So just stop, because I am getting quite annoyed.
I know you can feel that I am. So stop telling me to ditch.
I know that it can be quite annoying that I can’t go.
But know that I wasn’t the one who wanted this.
You may feel I’m not committing enough, but I am only one person. I cannot be at two places at once, and you know very well which priority is on the top of my list.
