Born with a Silver spoon…

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I sit here and wonder when all this hard work will eventually pay off. I see so many success stories, about people who say they started off just like me, and you, who’s dreams have rocketed off in the direction of complete success. Living the dream.

As I read the news, and catch up with celebrity culture, I see things that really start to bog me down. At the tender age of 18, Kylie Jenner is rolling around in a $230,000 car, whilst I’m struggling to pay for life, and educate myself at the same time. I often think, that life is a little skewed and unfair. How our lives are almost determined by the family we are born into, and the struggle to escape from that is, well a struggle.

It’s frustrating, wanting to do what you love, and nothing seems to be pulling through. Whilst people are going on their 17th holiday of the year, after quitting their job almost a year ago, it makes you wonder how they afford it? If it’s not funded by their well off parents.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure I’d love to take advantage of having a wealthy family, and I don’t begrudge anyone for doing so and enjoying the lavish lives they’ve had handed to them. However, I think it’s almost frustratingly unbearable to live your life in financial difficulty, whilst trying to achieve the life you want, whilst paying bills and figuring out real life problems as well. I’d want nothing more, then to have no worries apart from what I felt like doing today. All I want, is to be given the same, equal opportunities, and not have to have my life so decided for me by the lack of money.

To be able to do what I love, without having it be such a struggle.

Just a thought.


Thirsty For Thought.

    OMG….It seem like you took the words out of my mind…I love your article because sometimes when I sit back and think about life I feel the way you described. I realized earlier today that I can’t make a right turn if five cars are ahead of me blocking the way. It wouldn’t be my fault or theirs, so to comfort myself I thought well all I can do is to try to find an efficient way to somehow make it to my destination. I think this example is related to an unfortunate child trying to succeed in life but there is a lot of uncontrollable obstacles in way. Love your thought because it reminds me I’m not the only one. Thanks
