What about my own personal independence?
I've always been self-reliant.
I don't know why food's always been an issue. It was there when others were not? I don't know, but I'm tired of it. I want food to be fuel to keep my body running. Ok, on special occasions a treat is nice, too. But no more of using food for comfort and solace.
I am declaring my independence.
Yeah, ok; maybe that's easier said than done.
Like the obsession of some Americans with the affairs of the Great Britain's royal family?
