That it's not gone the way it should

I should have gone to university, travelled widely, settled to an exciting career, got married, had babies, gone part time or quit, gone to farms and parks and beaches.

Instead, I didn't travel. I didn't meet anyone. I eventually got scared I'd die alone, had two children, he left.

My reality now is as much as I love my children working long hours, always skint, small, shabby, dark home, and heartachingly lonely

I know my first reality is not what many will have but it's what do many of my friends have.

Just a moan.

Don't focus on what might have been. Focus on what you've got now and what you can work towards for the future. It's never too late to meet someone, retrain, or travel.

I messed up and dropped out of uni, don't have a career, can't even afford to buy the kids clothes right now. I'm looking to retrain or start my own business.

Well. It is too late. I just feel sad today.
