Transition from wants to needs
Having successfully cured homesickness after staying-outside-home for seven years, I am longing for my financial independence. With no job in hand and the prospect of future income at least 6 months away, I am feeling myself a burden on my parents. I can’t tell them about how I feel, as they - being over-loving parents - interpret my thoughts as complaints of being paid less pocket money. I am seriously missing job days when I would buy anything without giving a second thought to its price, but now all my shopping has stuck to bare essentials.
