32: At 40+ years, my path is still unclear

Gabrielle I mean this in a very loving way… Are you serious??! (I feel really bad about this but I’m still yelling…) You are enough!!! I’m just really mad at a culture that has a “car-free” mom of three feeling…well, the way do. Let me ask you this: Are you exhausted at the end of every day? Do you feel you don’t work hard enough to be considered a productive, respected, valuable member of society? Are you a part of the economy of your family? I get it if you want to do something else. I’m sure you will at some point. All I’m saying is please consider the notion that you do enough…and as I said, you are enough. (Car-free… Really?? Just promise me this enriches your life — a net gain — and your primary reason for doing this is not to set an example for your children….just checking…)
