Frankly speaking, have not been feeling upbeat for the past few days, kind of stressed out, trying hard to keep my composure, did lose cool a few times over the weekend, it all started with THIS, and because of THIS suddenly THIS seemed to have some things to do with myself.
Last friday, had a coffee break with an old friend, who was in his early 50s, as we were chatting away, suddenly he felt like having some beers, so i conceded, beers and friday what a pleasant combination.
As we were having some good times, suddenly my friend was kind of sad when i asked him about his current status, his eyes suddenly turned red and i could see drop by drop of tears streaming down his cheek, asked him why...........
His business has taken a beating since early this year, and he has been living with the help of credit cards financing and it had since balloning, he was feeling sad because as he told me, at his age, he just didnt know what he could do if his business really gets busted, he could not go back to the work force anymore,................and the whole family depended on him.
You may ask, what has my friend's predicament got to do with me? Nothing really, but the cruel reality of a man in mid 40s into 50s, losing it sounds too scary for me, as recently my business has in a way been not so rosy as well and others.............
When i saw my friend crying in front of me, i knew and i could feel how frustrating and how hopeless it might be for him, he was a good family man, no vices what so ever but it was just that the economy was not doing him any favour and i sheded some tears with him too.
When a man (in his 50s) cries, it must be really hard, i reckon.
P/S : I tried to look around me, i saw worse and i'd survive
