People, most of us, just want a reasonably secure and a modestly comfortable life.
Not even affluence, just a comfortable home, the possibility that we and/or our children will have an opportunity to do a little better in life. And most of us, if we could stop and think about our lives, would like not to work all the time, not to be on call all the time.
Most of us would like to have some free time to enjoy something other than work and to escape the constant unrelenting anxiety we all experience. A little balance is needed.
