Going after your dreams is an admirable goal.
However, it doesn’t always work out. And when that happens you need to get up and think of something else. I am not going to say anything is impossible but with a lot of things in life, luck is involved. I would like to say that hard work always pays off but that is not always true as this is how life is, and we need to accept that. You might not think this has anything to the following story, but I assure you it does.
You see the Father has told his adult children many times that they should get real jobs, but they never listen. His daughter is trying to be an influencer, but no money has ever come out of it and his son wants to be a streamer, but he also hasn’t earned anything through that. Now, I am not saying pursuing your dreams is wrong, but you need to have a stable job first and foremost before doing your side hustle.
Truth be told, from my perspective he just wants his children to grow up.
First we get a bit of background on where we are and how we got to this point in time.
The kids assumed that the money will go to them which usually happens.
However, they had another thing coming if they thought this was going to be easy.
The father clearly had enough and laid it all out for them.
You can probably guess that it did not end well and they both hung up.
Committing to these things fully before you have even earned anything is not a great idea.
My partner’s brother is in his late 30s and has been floating through life, refusing to hold down work and endlessly being enrolled in university without earning degrees. His plan, for years, has been to live off of his inheritance.
He’s only just realized in the last year or so that their parents are pretty healthy and will probably live for at least another 10 years, more likely 20+ and he’s starting to freak out. There’s a good possibility OP’s kids never thought about how long it might be until the payday, they just imagined the payday. –PurrPrinThom
Cancel culture is all the rage right now. So anyone who is at the top doesn’t stay there very long.
It is because everyone thinks it is easy and that they will be millionaires in no time because of it.
Any sort of social media platform can be bad for your mental health if you pay too much attention to the all the numbers.
I have no idea what OP’s health is, but I know that relying on an inheritance from my parents is a joke. My grandparents are all still alive except one. They are all in their 90s, One of them still plays competitive tennis and golf. Against people 50 years younger than he is. the one that did pass got 6 months to live cancer diagnosis from her DR. she said f*ck that and lived another 30+ years. My parents are in better health than I am for damn sure, and will probably out live me (I have a chronic issue stemming from a work related thing, not from genetics).
Maybe my kids will get to inherit something from their grandparents, but I don’t expect them to, and they already know that they should work hard to provide for themselves. –aroundincircles
Even if someone does become successful, it doesn’t mean they will be able to bring stable income.
They aren’t little kids and need to learn to act like adults.
It was definitely harsh, but I think they needed to hear it.
Do you think the Father was too harsh? Or do you think they deserved it? Comment down below and let us know.
