In response, I think I was misunderstood. I sound fatalistic. I’m not sure how to communicate my feelings about this.
I generally make a statement like this in relation to a specific person with a specific situation. I sound like this:
“Look. I would not expect anything more from this person at this time. They had their chance. The boat was there, they did not get on it at that time and the boat won’t be back until…”
This does not mean the person does not have a life. It does mean that failing to grow up retards you… period!
If you want an example, consider the man who lives with his Mom beyond his Saturn return. Is he all the sudden going to move out when he is thirty-three? No. I’ve never seen it, not even once!
If he does move, it will be with another mother figure and chances are, he’ll be right back to Mom in very short order. When does he get a chance to separate?
Most likely when she dies… making him about fifty-seven…
