Clever replies when you are called irresponsible

When people call you irresponsible, it could be because you are not doing what someone else thinks you should be doing.

People often have resistance if you don’t live your life according to their agenda. If you come from a family of three generations of dentists, they are not going to like it if you buck the trend and decide to become a media influencer. Your mom probably won’t appreciate your career choice, even if you point out that you are earning more than her by flogging shoes on Instagram.

In this day and age of political correctness and zealous people, you are going to sometimes get called irresponsible, whatever you say or do. When you don’t cater to someone else’s needs or opinions, you are going to get called out for offending someone or sharing your views that some would consider provocative.

It is important to live your life on your own terms as long as you are not physically hurting anyone else. Note, that doesn’t include them getting psychologically “hurt” by different thinking and perspectives. You only have so much time on the planet, and to make the most of your life you have to do what you want to do.
