I’m sure I’m not alone in this, but I have a constant guilt that I’m not providing my family with as much as they deserve. Whether it be that I’m not earning enough money at work or that we don’t go out enough as a family, I always feel as though I need to be doing more. Considering I feel as though I work my arse off, I don’t feel as though I have enough to show for it.
Life has this frustrating habit of forcing you to work and to use your time on building your bank, but for many of us, what we earn is just enough to live reasonably comfortably with very little opportunity to save. It’s so frustrating. There’s so much more that I wish I could give my family; a bigger house, a better education, the bestselling toys – the list goes on…
However, the one thing that I would love to have with my family is more time. It feels as though I’m constantly having to chase money, and it sucks. Most of the money earnt doesn’t even go on anything extravagant, it goes on bills, rent, food and other ‘basic’ necessities and I know for a fact that there are many other families in this exact same position. I realise that I am extremely lucky to have my family and so I try not to dwell on the negatives too much, but it’s difficult when all I want to do is provide my family with what I feel they deserve.
