When I was young my family was poor. I left home when I was sixteen and found it very difficult, at times, to support myself. I felt compelled to take jobs I didn't want and do work I disliked simply to put a roof over my head and to eat. I felt trapped and afraid.
Today, I have earned and saved enough money to support my family without working. I still choose to work, part time, I also choose to travel and I choose to do charity work. I no longer feel trapped and afraid. I feel free.
