Top 8 Reasons Why You Don’t Owe Anything to Anyone
We have all been in a situation where we felt like we ought to explain ourselves, our actions and personal opinions to someone else. Most of the time they didn’t want to accept our ways of life, opinions, thinking or anything else that we thought it was right. Well, guess what? As people grow older they are developing the feeling that they don’t have to explain anything to anyone. Those who are important will not mind and those who mind aren’t important.
These are some of the reasons Why You Don’t Owe Anything to Anyone or you should not care to explain to anyone.
#1. You don’t owe an explanation for your priorities
Seriously, you don’t have to explain why your own happiness as well as the happiness of your family are more important than a boring hang out with people who are making you feel terrible. You don’t owe anyone an explanation for what you determine is your core priority in life. That is your personal business not other people’s business.

#2. You don’t have to say “sorry” if you are not
Sometimes people expect you to say that you are sorry even though they know you are not. You don’t have to do it. Maybe you will come across as “rude” or “anti-socia lwhen you cancel plans or a night out because you need some time alone, to watch your favorite show or enjoy a good book by yourself. However, spending time alone is a completely healthy, normal, natural and necessary practice that more people enjoy. Take your alone time confidently because you don’t owe anybody an explanation for it.

#3. You don’t own your arguments or personal beliefs to anyone
If you are a religious person or an atheist you don’t have to explain yourself to anyone why you believe or don’t believe. It’s your own private thing. Also, you don’t have to share popular opinions just because million of people do. And of course it is always better to disagree instead to quietly accept things and be unhappy about it.

#4. You don’t owe a “Yes” to anyone
People will get angry with you and call you names if you suddenly start to say ‘no’ to them. It is unhealthy to constantly say ‘yes’ to people and be unhappy. You don’t owe to agree with everything. The most successful people in the world are those who have mastered saying no to everything that is not a priority. Learn your priorities. Your children would remember that fun afternoon in the park with you, but your boss won’t even think that you stayed over hours because he needed help.

#5. You don’t owe anyone an explanation about how you look
If you feel good in your own skin you don’t have to explain anything to anyone. Too skinny? That is how you feel best. Overweight? It is only your problem, not other people’s. Next time when anyone asks you why you don’t work out or why do you work out so much, you know what to say to them.

#6. You don’t owe an explanation about what you eat
If you are a vegan or a vegetarian you don’t have to explain to meat eaters why you quit meat. You simply don’t have to feel bad about your choice. You don’t have to defend yourself why you just ate a whole box of cookies either. It’s because you wanted to, so don’t bother yourself with that.

#7. You don’t owe an explanation to anyone about your intimate life
Whether you have only one partner, none or more than 5 it is absolutely your and only your business. It’s up to you what you will do with your own body, whether you would wait for the real partner, have multiple partners or simply settle for one. That’s why it is called intimate life, because it is only yours.

#8. You don’t owe anyone a date because they simply asked you out
If you don’t feel like going don’t go. Nobody can force you do anything you don’t want. It is not rude to say ‘no’ to an invitation. And it is always better to politely say no instead to lead on a person who expects things from you.
