Rely On Others Way Too Much

i've always wanted to consider myself an independant female. well, it's been many years since i've been just that... since my first marriage, all the way through my second marriage, the births of my children, i don't know how to be independant any more. well i shouldn't say that exactly.

i'm good with my little money  i have, but  business matters, banking issues, change etc... just boggles my mind. i would rather have a "man" in my life to handle all those details for me. i guess i'm a little old fashioned that way. don't get me wrong, i don't want to "live" off a man but i guess i would like the business side of life to be handled for me. i guess my anxieties and such get the better of me and things have to go sort of tickety boo for me. i'm a creature of habit and rituals and routine.   

i would love to have made different career choices earlier in life, been financially independant etc....... ahhhh what do you do...

I agree with you. I am opposite. My insignificant other handles all the domestic stuff. I handle the bills and money. Even though I'm good at financial stuff, I can't cook, clean or even cut vegetables without chopping off my fingers.
