Many people don’t realise they’ve facing depression, they’re anxious (so am I), it’s just a start and there are too many things happening. Most of them are too complicated. If you don’t catch up with the news every day you would miss a lot and have no idea what people are talking about.

For example, CN has sent tons of disinformation every day, we got the proof that they’re trying defeating our society.
CDC holds two press conferences every day as there’s too much disinformation from CN, the morning one is used to clarify the information.

People turn on the live stream to watch the main press conference at PM2:00 on time every day. “It’s like watching a lottery“, some said.

Finally, we got some touching news: Casar Park Hotel Taipei, a five-star hotel, joined the hospital team. It’s providing all rooms for patients who have minor or asymptomatic symptoms to help stop the community infection.

It’s totally different from so-called…

A local case in an elementary school has been diagnosed at midnight, it’s near my home. I’ve been struggling for three days if my daughters need to ask for personal leave to school before the schools are closed. I understand why the government hasn’t closed schools yet. It’s super common that both parents need to go to work and no one can take care of their children if the schools are closed. I think I’ll call personal leave for two weeks.

多數女人或男人儘管生小孩前認為她可以回到職場,對著生完孩子的世界有莫名不切實際的幻想,但事實是:丈夫與婆家百般的阻撓,認為媳婦就是要以孩子為重,要放棄自己的專業,要放棄所有娛樂與社交,孩子有問題時永遠是母親的責任要去處理;妻子為了省下大筆的保母開銷,還是得自己帶孩子。

這種狀況至少得持續到小孩上小學,如果生了兩個小孩就得等到兩個都上小學,包含懷孕期間,大約至少要有八年脫離職場、脫離自我學習、脫離朋友圈、脫離娛樂,甚至,脫離自己的娘家。

等到她終於能回到職場了,經過八年與社會的脫離,她所有的人際溝通、專業能力等,好一點得花幾個月摸索回來,差一點可能當時的技能早已被淘汰,她得從最基層的工作做起,又累又沒多少錢,以及,面對社會其他人的臉色。

不要拿那些看起來成功的其他妻子作為比較。

每個人的時間都一樣多,只是有些人犧牲了其他的事情去補其他事情,有些人就是財力雄厚先天條件佔盡良機,有些人的丈夫與婆家有 sense 讓妻子好好過好她的人生。

我不對我人生中的任何一個選擇感到後悔,但是我惋惜我那些失去的時間。
