Yesterday while lunching with co-workers, the topic of wives came up, and we joked about how they are always right. Nodding to the inevitability of this fact. A very light-hearted discussion about such restraints in our lives.
At one point I said, “Freedom is overrated.” I was only half joking. Being a widower now, I have the freedom pretty much to do as I choose. To please myself.
I would much more like giving of myself than giving to myself. My selfishness is better handled within restraints.
