I'd rather be...

The Princess and the Lotus. Glass painting, 2001.
I'd rather be.. bad than boring.
I'd rather be... brutally honest than tell white lies.
I'd rather be... classy than trendy.
I'd rather be... real and lonely than fake and popular.
I'd rather be... flawed than perfect.
I'd rather be... healthy than thin.
I'd rather be... a listener than a talker.
I'd rather... love than judge.
I'd rather be... a Narcissist than pitied.
I'd rather be... hated for what I am than loved for what I'm not.
I'd rather... have genuine enemies than fake friends.
I'd rather be... myself than someone's clone.
