I was raised very conservative by immigrant parents. I was taught to think that my adulthood would be me going to college, getting married, settling down and having a family in my twenties. I realize now though that the a lot of these expectations put on me as a young women were projections of a past generation’s experiences. Being 23 my life couldn’t be more different. I’m living on my own in LA, supporting myself making music. As I was working on my project, I noticed a lot of people staying in certain relationships (even when the were toxic) because they were scared of not living up to an expectation. This song is me saying I don’t want to be part of that cycle. I definitely want all those things like family, a lifelong partner in my life eventually, but I don’t want to seek them out of the fear of not living up to a stereotype.
