I had what I think is a rather odd phone conversation. The lady I was talking to me said it was hard to talk to me because I have so many interests and involved with so much now that people are suppose to stay involved with what they always have been involved with. She has been a teacher for over 40 years and supposedly retired but stills subsitutes and the school she taught at. She is married and is the mother of a very successful daughter who is 30yrs old. Her husband is wonderful and is retired and the two of them love to travel. Sound pretty good to me. Me, I never was and never wanted to get married, just never saw in my life. Spent my life in the accounting world and helping my mother with my autistic brother. I was a caregiver for all the major ill people in my family and I do not regret one minute. Well that entire period is over and I am retired. I volunteer for different groups that I believe in and find very rewarding for everyone. I joined a fun group that I look forward to every week. I did get very ill myself and had to go through mental therapy for 9 years and found out so much about myself a new real me was discovered. I am less stressed and much more confident in what I do and attempt. So when the lady stated we are to stay and speak about what we always have, I felt that does she expect everyone not to expand their worlds and not be curious and not learn new subjects when they are older? I have been learning new topics continuously. My question is am I wrong? Am I doing something really offensive to the public? What does everyone think? Should I be ashamed of myself for being this constantly happy?
