Hi Shalvi 🙂 First of all, show me one person you know who is leading a perfect life. There are no one. Everyone is struggling in their own ways. Many of them keep a happy face in the society and we get deceived thinking their life must be wonderful. Imagine you have a stone in your hand. You keep thinking this is the biggest stone you have ever seen, until you find a rock. Sometimes, we think our problems are the biggest problem in the world. But look around. We are living in a world where countries exist where people have no freedom, children and women get sexually abused, people starve. I am not saying your problem is not important. But sometimes when you look at these bigger problems, it will help you see your problems from another perspective. You get a feeling that, it is something that you can handle.
It is completely okay that you haven’t done anything in your life so far. But if you keep complaining about it for another 30 years, you will be standing in that same place. Don’t let that happen to you. So understand what you want to do in your life, and start working towards it.
About parents… When they see their children struggling they get worried and as the very next step they try to advice, even if they are not an expert in the field. More loving they are, more interfering they will be, whether children like it or not. Don’t hate them. Once they get a feeling that you and your husband is taking the right decisions for your future, they will stop feeling worried.
All these are easy to say. You will have to be stay patient and work hard. Finally one more thing.. Don’t die 🙂
