Have you ever not done things just because there was someone else to take care of it? Most of us have it in our very nature to ignore or not appreciate what others do for us. Let me give you an example. I am a hardcore introvert – so much that I hate making phone calls let alone attending parties or going out and meeting people. I have been wanting to cancel one of my credit cards for the past one year but never gotten a chance to make myself pick up the phone and call the customer care and ask them to cancel it.
My internet bill suddenly spiked up and my husband has been telling me everyday for the past two months to call them up and change the plan yet I find it easy to pay the extra bill than go through the ordeal of calling the customer care person.
When I was living alone, I pretty much did everything on my own. Going to bank, paying bills, going to dmv, handling weird people, I even had to go to the nearest PD but I did all of that without any fear. Now that I am married, I feel like half my responsibilities no longer belong to me. One of the main one being taking to strangers (read customer care folks). I feel my husband will take care of it.
But what if he isn’t there. Should I wait for the day when I have no option left to start doing things on my own? We all are capable of living independently and doing everything on our own. Why are we still dependent on others? Why do we wait for the day when no one is there to help us? Start doing things now, the sooner you learn the better.
