And I still recall that my grandmother and my mother's family friend, lived alone and she had MS. We used to visit her as often as we can when I was young. And I enjoyed pushing her wheelchair while we were strolling in the park.
Of course I have an experience by being married and as a divorcee. Here are my thoughts based on pros vs cons of being single.
Pros of being single as follows:
- Decide of how you can handle your budget based on income and expenses
- Decide of which tasks you want to complete in the home and yard
- Self Care
- Choose which activities you want to have good time
- Decide of how late you want to return back home
- Sleep in when needed
- Chat via Internet or on phone when you can
- Purchase miscellaneous when needed
- Save money for future use
- Set up your own goals to accomplish
- Plan vacations either getaway or staycation
- Who will take care of you in case if you are sick?
- Who will take care of you in case if you go through recovery from the surgery?
- Who will be there to assist you in case if something goes wrong in the home such as plumbing, dishwasher, refrigerator, etc.
- Help with yard work
- Takes a turn to drive
- No team work in the home
- Be there for you as a friend
As a single mother, I tend to get some feedback and moral support from close friends, who I trust. And I continue to try my best to take care and accomplish tasks as much as I can at home and in the yard.
At the same time, I continue to be grateful that I am still in good health.
