“Surviving.” This is the usual reply that my husband gives whenever somebody asks him how he is doing. I guess he is not the only one who has that in mind and we can just all be thankful. With the current economy, you would be grateful if you have a regular job like my husband. In this dog eat dog world, having a job is your only hope for survival, I guess.
Yes, life is tough and it’s definitely not a bed of roses. And I guess that is probably why some people who can’t face the vicissitudes of life get depressed and some fall into the trap of drug or alcohol abuse. Though there is a detox center out there that can help them, still, how I wish they wouldn’t resort to such because it’s not really going to do them any good. But it’s their choice and it’s their life. I hope they will view things in a different perspective though and for certain, their lives would get better.
