Some don’t make it to 40, so do they never get to live? Maybe, if they planned to retire after 65, they didn’t.
I don’t like the idea of living life as if things are promised to you, nothing is.
In regards to making money, the whole point of me moving to Thailand (main point) is to reduce expenses. I’m still planning to save, work and not use my savings. Although I am going to be working less, I’m going to be spending less.
You don’t save how much you make, you save how much you don’t spend. I didn’t “make” a lot of money, never claimed to, I saved my money.
I will admit, while tempting, it’s a bit of a turn off knowing the amount of guys they meet. Luckily I’m young so I haven’t had to go the bargirl route yet, one other advantage of coming to Thailand in your 20’s
Nothing says you can’t acquire a skill-set unless you stay working and retire old, I’d say the experience alone moving to another country would only add to that.
I’ve taken advice from some older friends and parents of friends who regretted their decisions. I’ve seen their mistakes and learned from them. Lots of people I know grow old wishing they lived life differently, very few are truly satisfied with how they spent their time.
Sure you might be able to walk up the stairs when you’re 60, but how’s your vision, pain, joints, bones, stamina, hand eye coordination, strength and reflexes?
Just one example, your bones start deteriorating at 30, you’ll be much more fragile no matter how great you take care of yourself. Can you really experience life living to the fullest? Or did you miss your opportunity that you’ll never be able to get back?
I agree, if the Govt. was onto it at the beginning it would be a different story. Boat has sailed and with the current Govt. factual hope of minimizing loss of life with it. My believe is that this is a country that could possibly get away with it. Replace the fear with hope. No one knows all the exact numbers. But humans can get out of bed and have something to look forward to !!!
