I was flying back from vacation, flipping through the audio tracks and came across a talk show where the lady was saying "you can't be living a rich life and living someone else's values". Oh how true.
Many times when people see me about a porce they are far from taking that final step to start the porce process. They are still trying to understand what porce will mean to their lifestyle. Sometimes I see people fixating on appearances, status and material things and not focusing on their own happiness and mental well-being.
If you can have a peaceful evening with the children that is carefree and "fun" it goes a long way to making up for living in a smaller place or having to be more careful about money. Your children really just want mom and dad. They adjust to physical surroundings far quicker than we give them credit for.
Are you living a life in accordance with your values? Do you even know what your values are? How is your life going to change if you get a porce? If you're contemplating porce I would recommend searching your deepest thoughts and feelings about this issue.
A rich inner life beats a rich external life any day.
