I remember those days when I was younger and just starting to earn a living. Day in and day out, I worked so hard to the extent of skipping meals sometimes. Every time I went shopping, I always would have second thoughts about whether to go ahead and buy this or that shirt. I would always haggle. And when I went to the grocery store, I would think twice if this or that food was really delicious enough for me to buy and bite into. Then I would suppress my appetite by not buying it for the simple that it was expensive.
All those years, I tried to save every single peso for the future. Now, that future is here. Now I can afford to buy this and that food. But the problem is my health doesn’t allow me to eat them because of diabetes, hypertension, arthritis, etc. Oh, the irony!
