The first thing that comes to mind when you are told that you don’t do enough is chores, housework, grocery shopping, normal everyday activities. When I hear it, it’s coming from Wifey and she is referring to me having fun.
"You need to go out and do more."
"Why don’t you just have a drink?"
"Go hang out or something."
et cetera, et cetera.
Honestly, it stresses me out. I’m a big stressor; from bills to work to just hanging out with friends. Going out only adds to the stress. While everyone else is having a good time, all I can think about is how I’m not having a good of time as everyone else. Will I have enough money to get to work after this dinner? Can I have one drink and still have a lunch tomorrow?
These are always running through my head. I try so hard to make life easier for everyone I love, I wonder if they even notice?
You’re sitting on a train. You’re going home.
The train is moving at approximately 70 mph.
You stand up and begin the walk to the front of the train.
Congratulations, you are now walking faster than a moving train.
