I feel worthless, based on the way we assign value in our society. I am a 58 year old woman who has spent the last 20+ years raising two children. Now, society seems done with me. Certainly employers are done with me. And I have been done with me. Until now.
My new year’s resolution is that I will spend the next year searching for a purpose. I will be satisfied if I can simply identify a realistic goal. I will look deep inside myself and far outside my comfort zone. I will take risks and face fears.
If, after a year, I have made no progress, I will give up and drink heavily.
If you are a woman who understands how I feel, please tell me about your struggles and let me know what you have found, or not found. Or just share the recipe for your favorite cocktail.
