My mum was retrenched from her job due to covid. My dad quit his job to help my mum. After all my mum was the only who provided more income for the family than my dad.
My mum and dad started their own business but my mum has spent less time for me. When i get mad about how little time she spends with me, she’d get mad in return and explain the importance of money and how she is just tryna provid a life for me. She has also bailed on me multiple times and her reasons were always the same “im so sorry, i was busy”
Honestly to me, idc if we’re poor, have no roof, have no internet etc. To me having the family together is what’s more important. Ever since mum and dad started working together, I’ve noticed how much they argue and once was so bad that my mum called the police
So yea… to me… money can’t rebuilt a broken family, but a united family can rebuilt the lost income
I am honestly proud of how far my mum has come in her business and how she has never given up on something that she really wants despite it being bad for her health. But i can’t bear to see her extremely tired from her business nor can i bear seeing my parents in so much heat against one another
