My Mom and I disagree frequently on a lot of things, but this does not mean that we cannot stand each other. In fact, we love each other so much that I couldn’t think of living a life away from her. This is one of the reasons why I declined a job that requires relocating to another state.
Yesterday, we got into another argument about her recent purchase, which she calls an investment. She bought herself a life insurance (from lifeshieldhq.com). I told her that it is not necessary since she has some savings, retirement payments and her own home.
She told me that she is doing it to prevent me from having problems in the future. She insisted that the reason that I disagree with the purchase is because I didn’t want to think about her dying.
That was true. She further explained to me that even if she has some cash at the moment, we wouldn’t know what to expect once she becomes sick and will require medical treatments. It can be costly that we may resort to getting loans just to support her treatment.
I understand better now. It may be painful to think about a love one’s death, but it is a fact of life that happens to everyone.
