Attracted to 'Working Class'!

Both of my parents did 9-5 jobs. Now we are doing the same, not only that our grandparents also kinda fall in the same category.

People say, aww...you didn't manage to get off from the working class, become rich and live a comfortable life!

I mean, yeah that's true.

But you have to know that if I ever wanted that, right?

I have heard it from so many after marrying my husband; why him? He doesn't have a house or car on this name, he couldn't afford many things, I could easily choose others over him. I asked this question so many times to myself too after confronting the same again and again. But in the end, I can proudly say that I never feel guilty for my choice.

I'm attracted to the working class, the hardworking people, the hustler who are fighting daily in their life.

I find it extraordinary and fascinating to see those who are in a continuous fight in life, struggling in many ways, and still carries the same value.

Both of my parents did Government jobs, I have seen how they used to refuse different unethical work offers. It made me realize over time how important it is to maintain an ethical standard, never compromise with the values we carry and pass them to the next generation.

Quote unquote, I'm not saying who is living a comfortable life is anything bad. It's just, I would probably always choose the working class over them. It's something personal, don't feel offended by this.

When I take local transport for some work reason or when I walk around the street, I never ignore but notice the faces of the people that are working beside the street, pulling the rickshaw...They have a different face, a face of struggle. The sweat, the hard work says many things about them. I can see their eyes are telling thousands of stories. Maybe life is not treating them good but they are finding a way to fight and survive.

The same goes for us as well...

I follow a renowned photographer named GMB Akash who shares thousand of stories about the daily hustle life of the working class through his photograph. It always fascinates me to see how different we are but still the same.

I wish I could convey the message to them that they are not alone in this fight. Maybe our struggle looks different. But there are many like me, who prefer this struggle rather than having a comfortable life, who finds it more rational and meaningful way of living, who things that we can learn and contain more by doing so.

Maybe our struggle would not end very soon, maybe our next generation would also be a working-class but I would never feel bad about it.

I was once a corporate worker. I commute everyday. I do this 5 times a week. I was burnout because of the stress and the toxicity in the workplace.

A working class give us a challenge to fight. We work hard and doing our best for the future. It will give us a definition what is life about. It is the survival steps in daily lives. We must have an action in order to walk continuously.

For me, you're right sis. I think being in a working class give us learnings. It will serve as a preparation anytime. It's the better because it's not new for us instead we know it already and our mind is always in positivity.

That's right. Wealth is not bad but people use it badly. And comfort sometimes makes us do evil things because we don't have hardship. It's better to be working class and maintain the ethical status. Thanks for putting your thoughts in. It means a lot, dear. Have a good day. :)

Yes my friend that's true. Mostly they will use it for bad influences. While in working class you will understand the meaning of life.

Excellent points, friend. As I also belong to the same community of the working class, I can understand the feelings. But, in general, people from our working-class community always hope/expect their children to be well-off and live like a celebrity.

But I don't. I'm okay with it if my son will not go materialistically well in life. I came to realize there are other things in life to focus on that can make us happier. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. It means a lot. Have a great day.
