The way I see it. . . and will always see it. . . at the end of it all I only care about letting one person down. My son. & it has always been that way. Especially now that he is of age and understands things a little more. I'm careful. Very careful.
I always told myself this...
I refuse to walk around with a thousand dollar purse on my shoulder when I'm still living at home with my parents. I may be a lot of things but I know I'm not materialistic what so ever. Some people are comfortable with that kind of life style & there's honestly nothing wrong with that. But you have to have priorities. I prefer a better car over a four thousand dollar purse. I rather save up for a house, than struggle and pretend I'm "making" it on my own. Like I said, I'm a lot of things but I'm far from fake about the way I live my life. Either I have it or I don't. And those are morals my parents have thought me over the years. Morals I'm implementing in my son.
