The less burden the better
Sunday, December 14, 2008
I used to care a lot about what my family thought of me. You know, grannies, mom, dad, uncles, nieces and nephews. I'm 27 now and I've realized that I do not anymore. At one point I started to care less and less and it's still descending as we speak. I like it. I feel much more free right now but I feel a bit more alone too. There was a time when my mom was still with her second husband and we'd go visit a uncle or granny every weekend. We ate together, we hung out and around 10 pm I'd leave to go into town with my friends. That was the case every weekend.
I also went to have dinner at my dad's every week, sometimes more often than that.
And now, I haven't been around to my mom's house since this summer. I get to see my dad 2 months a year on average. The rest of the year we talk on the telephone and I still tell him everything. I confide in him and it's great.
Lots of stuff happened in the past years and I think my life is going the way God intended. Sometimes it's hard but it's good to know things happen and not happen because they're supposed to.

Squirrel had this to say:
27 is a odd year, isnt it?
for me it was when I realized I was grown (emotionally) and weird things no longer surprised me. I was still optimistic, but family drama began to bore me, and I was no longer interested in being referee in the squabbles between my siblings.
I felt removed for the first time... which is probably why I felt more grown up too. I had always thought I was independent, but at 27 I truly became independent.
