Your life is not my fault
Money has never been a problem for me. It's just something that has always been there for me and I think it has to do with my attitude towards it more than anything else. I enjoy having it, I don't feel the least bit guilty about it and I also know to live in a state of appreciation for everything else in my life.
My mother is rather uncomfortable with my lifestyle because she believes life is supposed to be hard. Well, I don't, I never have-- no matter how vigorously she tried to convince me throughout life growing up with her. I think what you speak about you bring about and what you dwell on matters. You can talk about all the good things in your life and be thankful for them or lament everything and run around playing the martyr-- either way, you'll get more of what you speak about and dwell on.
I don't feel bad. I like my home by the sea, my shiny car, my vacations, my freedom. There's nothing wrong with having any of it. I'm having a great life! It's too bad. I thought parents were supposed to want to see their kids do better and be proud of them.
Oh well for her.
