I was in line at the hospital. And I got into a conversation with a rather interesting woman. She is now 70 years old. She looked neat and well-groomed. Not like an old lady.
She consciously decided to make a career and live to the fullest for herself. She got married for the first time at the age of 20.
The husband did not ask for children under her 30s. Then, when he started talking about children, she divorced him. Galina, that was the name of this woman, managed to build a career, travel around the world, and dress in boutiques in France.
When she was 60 years old, her second husband passed away. And Galina was left alone. Now she goes to a circle of singing and dancing, she began to practice Finnish walking. Takes active care of your health.
I asked her: – But you still do not regret that you did not give birth to a child. Now would not be lonely in old age? – You know, my dear, no, I’m not sorry.
Because all my friends are parents of children. And you know what? They are alone now. But, unlike them, I can at least pay for a person who will bring me food and a glass of water when I am sick. And even their own children will not take care of them. Do you agree with Galina?
