I Don’t Exist To You

Why do you pretend that I like things that I actually don’t like?

For all of my life (more than three decades), you have refused to acknowledge that I love to travel and that I don’t like a lot of traditional Chinese dishes.

I want to enjoy my life without being criticized and perceived as a stupid person.
