Time Flies Away
I spoke to my colleague at work today and I realize that time really flies. I mean this girl is forty seven years old and has no children. She admitted that she let time pass her by. That is so depressing. I hope this does not happen to me.
This woman did say that she was too good to her relatives and has allowed them to stay with her for extended amounts of time and perhaps this explains the lack of kids. Not sure what to make of this. I mean she does look a lot younger than her age, maybe at least by seven years. But I just think it is a waste. Although some people are horrible parents too, so sometimes having no children is actually the most responsible thing to do.
My co-worker does have an affinity for playing the lotto and gambling. So I hope she does at least take care of her own bills. I also hope she figures out whether she should charge her relatives for living with her.
We work so hard, but at the end of the day have no personal time and no time to have a family. We cannot provide for ourselves or for a family. This is very sad. I am contemplating just working for myself. I know I will have no benefits and crazy taxes to pay, but I think this may be the only way.
