no valerie, sometimes i feel like i'm reliving history caught in a time warp
if you got money no matter where you are,you can at least afford the basics for a decent living otherwise many people just make do with what they have.Many countries in Asia are 3rd world countries,poor,living standards are much lower than that of the rest of the world ,especially in rural areas where the government spends the least,even if that,so people are literally forced to make do with whatever they got.
i am kind of fortunate so my standard of living is pretty high compared to many but still,i don't see myself superior to anyone and have helped many people in my area with what i could afford.
i am no millionaire nor am i rich,i work too and believe me when there are not many opportunities around you count yourself lucky with what God has given you,no matter how small or big it is.
the main reason for me living in a rural area is the peace and tranquility it offers,i been bought up in a city all my life,done it all,tasted everything ,now is kinda like detoxing myself.
i did find the city life very hectic and stressful,basically working all day,keeping up mortgage payments,paying the bills,car insurance,tax etc........so many bills,so many responsibilities ,eventually i had enough,especially after my accident which really prompted me to change my whole lifestyle,so there you go,i have no regrets but some decisions i should have taken more time over,anywayz still happy overall.
