Better experience some hardships when you are young


On 6/9, Sunday evening, my son called home. We chatted about his life and work. I know he is trying a minimalist living now, so I asked if he was ok financially. He said he was still doing ok.

Next, he said “It’s better I have this kind of life now than after I turn 30.”

Nowadays children grow up like in a honey jar, never having the taste of the bitter side of life. It is a good thing on the one hand. On the other hand, they will better appreciate the sweetness of honey if they know what bitterness tastes like.

I am sure my son’s current lifestyle will prepare him for a better appreciation of what he will have in the future.
