Sick and Tired of …

I am fully aware that life by all means is not meant to be easy. It is not life unless it is chock-full of options where we must choose and thus, sometimes make the wrong decisions. But still, I have no clue as to why, with all the difficulties life has upon us, people keep on making it harder than it should be, or already is.

I just realize this when I try to count how many demands I have in life. Demands made by people just like me. Imagine this. Before my school years the demand was, "When will you go to school?".
After I went to school, it turned into, "When will you graduate?".
Following the graduation, came this, "When will you get a job?".
Okay, now I got a job, but, "When will you be promoted?"—or worse, "When will you get married?".
Finally, met a man of my dream before the problem, "When will you have children?".
Later, repeat from question number one with a different subject—my kids. tiring, wearing, exhausting—keeping up with all the demands in life. Answering people's question to make them happy. Why don't they just ask, "When will you be out of this world?". At least I won't have to come up with the response.

Can't I just sit back and relax and enjoy what God has given to me without worrying what I might not have achieved? Can't they (whoever they are) just stop comparing me with others so that I won’t look so...incomplete?

I suppose it would be a lot nicer if I could turn back and be grateful for what or where I had been instead of looking way ahead and thinking the grass is greener on the other side of the fence (yikes, I bring this up again).

[We will never be truly complete anyway. We can only try to be, or seem to be.]
