A second time

A long time ago, I was happy to be alive every morning and enjoyed every minute. I was happy to have a family and enjoy them. I forgot how to unwind. The large family and Grand Children bring a responsibilty and worry. I felt a fettered need to look after them. Without realising it, I was losing my own happiness. It`s only recently with the guidence of a spirit I have learned again to be happy with myself. As a second time, the appreciation is more profound. It`s a matter of realising that we all have a free will. It`s of little use worrying for others pointlessly. So when the environment I`m in gets over the top, I think, "Do I need to worry"? Of course I don`t. Responsibility is one thing, carrying the world on your shoulders is too much.
