"Go ahead with your own life and leave me alone"

I don't listen to a lot of Billy Joel.  I don't generally like his music.  However...

My Life

I have to say:

  • I don't care if you're gay.
  • I don't care if nature or nurture made you that way.
  • I don't care if it's natural or unnatural.
  • I don't care if you can or can't be cured.
In the end, all of that doesn't matter at all.  It really doesn't matter what choices people make in their life or why they made those choices.  Let me repeat that:

It doesn't matter what choices people make in their life


Because it's THEIR life!  Leave it alone!

Why do people feel the need to force others to live by their rules?  It makes no sense to me.  I just don't understand it.  If the people with whom you disagree are not limiting your own choices, then leave them alone and let them have their choices.  Maybe, just maybe, they'll leave you alone and let you live your life in return.  Maybe, just maybe, we will all ultimately just let each other live freely, the way they want to live.
