I’ve grown up in a society where adults spend most of the their days working for money to buy things and pay for services. Children are expected to go to school and graduate. College is encouraged but time and time again do we see college graduates graduate then move back in with their parents because they are not able to find a job in the field that they studied; OR they find a job outside of their field of study so they can get an apartment or house and become adults then have their own children to do the same thing. What if we weren’t supposed to live this way?
What if we were actually just meant to do what we must to survive however our main focus be in our relationships with friends and family? When the elderly are asked what do they most regret in life; their responses are usually they wish they could have spent more time with their family or took more chances. Yet, we live our lives in complacency and are content with simply making a living than actually living our lives; and to allow ourselves to do so with people we love. Instead, we fill our time keeping up with the negativity of the world by watching, listening, talking about the terrible things that are happening around the world instead of spending the time being close with our families and friends.
