When I feel frustrated in a thing I do or I plan, sometimes I wish I could be someone else. Someone who has everything that could accomplish something because I am financially secured or fully equipped with the materials needed. How about you friends, do you feel the same sometimes?

Yes, I do. Idle thoughts really but sometimes life does become so frustrating and difficult, I just wish I could be born as somebody else. You know, those celebrities we see in the glossies daily, most of them are born with the golden spoon in their mouth and don’t have to lift even a little finger to get anything done. Everything’s just there for them to enjoy and demand as and when they please. They do have problems and challenges and of course they do work to keep the wheel moving, but they have it so much easier than most of us.

right thats why we really can't help sometimes but wish we're someone else. Someone who could provide the need of the family, someone who could give help to the needy especially the relatives and friends, the street children and others. Thanks for the response

I did at one time. Not wanting to be that person but to be in their shoes with all they had and myself being older and having nothing. It was hard as hell to deal with but you know what? After 17 years of marriage, hubby and I have everything we want and are financially secure. Neither of us work, hubby get's retirement and disability which takes care of us and all of our pets. It took 15 years to get where we are now and you can do it too with the help of your other half, if and when you get married provided that you're not already married. It takes a lot of hard work and communication between the two of you but you can get there. By the way, when we got married we had a tv stand and everything (just about) to go in the kitchen, that's it. No furniture or anything else but clothes. Now we have three living room sets, three bedroom sets, a few computers, two kitchen sets, four tv's and everything matches, curtains and bedspreads or comforters and so on. But it took us years to get where we are so please be patient and you'll get there too! Don't knock yourself down, keep working at it and you WILL get there!

Am so happy for you, you'll be inspiring many people of what beautiful things you have come up to. I'd been a single parent for 17 yrs now, was widowed although had survived raising the children with all the hardships of working hard, one now has a family the other two are working. One of the two still finishing his studies. We're helping each other but still I feel I have so many things to accomplish as I am in my early fifties. I still want to be of help to myself and children financially. Should my husband still living perhaps somehow i could feel and experience even a part of what you have, anyway am hoping I could do something more to change life. With God's help and blessings I hope I could get there as well. Thanks for the response, friend.

bing, I'm so sorry! You've had to do it alone and that makes all the difference in the world!! Gee, to have the kids that you have and to know that you raised them all on your own is such an accomplishment that it can't be measured on any sort of scale!! If it's any consolation, YOU have something that I only dream of having and that's kids. Had we had kids, we most likely wouldn't have what we have now but you did have kids and you did it completely on your own!! That's one hell of an accomplishment that I KNOW I could not do alone but YOU DID!! Now pat yourself on the back because you've accomplished A LOT!!
