Once upon a time, I was working a really horrible stressful job. Now this was after my overseas journey but before my younger sibling transferred to welding. There was talk between my parents about what to do about housing for my sibling and it was decided that they should buy a condo or something similar near the local university to support that and also to create investments for them.
Now, their eldest daughter, she was really very ill all the time but hid it because she felt bad complaining about her illnesses when many others had it worse. It didn’t keep her from functioning most days, but at its worst, the diseases could, and had, hospitalized her.
The doctors didn’t know what was wrong with her and they kept giving her potions and pill and nothing was working so they tried one last effort and it put the poor thing right into the hospital.
Now, this was both unfortunate but welcome because it meant the wizards in the land had figured out what was wrong with her. They prescribed her some strange and stringent guidelines and sent her home.
But before her illness was solved, her parents offered her to buy the small cottage. She was scared and stressed and had too many other things in her life going on. So she declined.
But if she hadn’t, she could have already had her own cottage. She wouldn’t have disappointed her parents and she could be renting it out to others for money at this very moment.
Lately this alternate time line has been bothering the girl deeply.
I think part of why people get into relationships is that one specific person is deeply obligated to care unconditionally.
Also then there would be someone to tell I lost my keys and to have them come pick me up.
I get scared sometimes that like, 30 years in the future I’ll have no one who cares about the minor catastrophes that occur, and I’ll just go crazy because no one will care.
Anyways. I lost my keys today. It was horrid and stressful and I am still very tired from my trip.
I did get the work thing sorted out.
