I’m a firm proponent of living the unconventional life! Thanks for your response. I’m working on another piece and just wrote the notes: “I’m less useful to my children stunted, ashamed, depressed, regretful, insecure.” I’m sure your mom thought she was doing the right thing by focusing on providing for her children, but I also recognize that my emotional state will rub off on my kids. Congrats on magically making rent week to week. Throw some of that fairy dust this way!
