Humbles caused by grumbles
I had a humbling experience lately. My folks provided my sibs and I with gas cards. They pay the bill for us… What?? I choose to be independent and pay my own gas, I do not understand how my sibs can make (or allow) them to pay for them?? Okay the humbling experience is that I lost my gas card (my personal one that I pay)… I had no choice but to use the one from my folks, but I know my unit # so I will pay them back. Is it pride though? They are more than willing to pay it for me, but I Want to be independant. I was humbled because here I was doing the same thing as my sibs.. and I judge them for it. I feel they are taking advantage of my folks, but honestly my folks are OFFERING.. so is it pride that stops me from accepting? And am I infact being the disrespecting one? My folks do not seem to worry about it either way, but I feel I need to make my own way and they need to save for their retirement (or travel now and ENJOY life!! Hello!!)
I found my gas card BTW so Whoo Hooo!! Freedom!!… wait I don’t own a car????
