It was a long life reaching this age. I recall having so many responsibilities in my teens. At that time, it seemed like a nuisance and a burden. It even felt like I didn't have a life of my own! However, because of that, I think I was able to handle unexpected tough times. I guess that's just how it is. The everyday life that we see as monotonous and sometimes unfair prepares us for situations that haven't crossed our minds yet. There might have been a time that I may have given up if not for the prior experiences that happened, but here I am. Better to calm ourselves because there's nothing to do other than to continue despite the uncertainties.
