Emerson Maxim

            "My life is for itself and not for a spectacle.
             Some need more time than others, and I feel as if I am one of those people. I hold my privacy pretty sacred to me, and I get really irritated if somebody tries to interfere with it. Call me insecure, call me strange, call me a freak I don't care; it's just the way I am. This Emerson maxim struck a chord with me as soon as I saw it. It puts my need for occasional seclusion into simple terms. I feel like the meaning can be summed up in three words: Leave me alone. .
             I've had a lot of experiences in which I just felt like screaming that phrase at the top of my lungs. One of them was when I was grounded in the summer for unspecified reasons. People started asking me some really personal questions about why it happened, how my parents reacted, why I didn't do this, why did I do that and it just reached a boiling point. Not only did I have my own turmoil at home, but I had my friends and a lot of other people who barely even know me saying stuff to other people about what happened, which was mostly a bunch of lies. It really just irked me to the point where I didn't want to talk to a lot of people for months. A lot of it kind of led to my liking for the occasional isolation from the world - just time to myself. And that is why I have identified and related to this specific Emerson maxim.
