I suppose to be overly simplistic about it, the #1 thing I’m most afraid of failing at is life. Right now, I’m struggling to find work, and it weighs heavily on my mind every day. My parents are paying my bills for me because I have no more money saved up in which to do it, and I know that on a fixed income, that bites into their budget every month. I’m afraid of something happening to them and as a result, ending up homeless. My sister has a boyfriend she can live with, and she’s a teacher, so she’s got a steady income, but I don’t have either of those things. I’m afraid of being a burden to her when it’s just the two of us left, since marriage/children aren’t happening for me. I’m okay with being the spinster aunt provided I’m not forced to live with her to avoid a shelter or the park.
Wow, that got maudlin all of a sudden.
