My Parents are Scared of my Future

I've always threaded the lesser traveled paths because I am too fat and won't fit in the path crowded with people.

Almost everyone in my family were and are teachers. I became a writer.

Almost everyone in my family live and die as employees. I quit a lucrative job to be a freelancer.

I'm okay with it. I'm okay with the "unconventional route" especially because in that world outside my family, the route I have taken is not that unconventional.

But I know my parents are worried that I have no regular job and that I am still single. I know they are worried that I will grow old alone.

The only thing I am worried about is them, that they worry to much about me. I'm fine. I've got it all figured out... most of the time.



I don't exactly have a blueprint of my future but I have laid down major plot points which will only change if destiny or God or whoever or whatever is in charge outside of me of my own life intervenes and change things.

I don't know how to assure them that I'll be alright. I thought I have proven I can take care of myself after years of taking care of them.

But I guess it's their job to worry and that no matter what I do, I will forever be their baby in their eyes that needs to be taken care of and attended to.
