Let's blame London!
Katie is depressed today, she tries to blame it on the rain but secretly knows it’s something else, she is depressed about being single and living in London, she wonders why she’s still here five years on despite her initial plans to only stay for a couple before meeting Mr. Right, and moving somewhere cleaner, quieter and possibly family oriented.
She remains in
London for reasons she cannot fathom herself, perhaps it’s greed for the generous London salaries, or perhaps the lifestyle or certainly the laborious wait to meet Mr. Right. London
We all love London for what it has to offer but we all know it’s a big trap you cannot escape, we get entangled in its fast life web and forget to get off when the time is right so we get stuck for another ride until we’re too slow or too old and we get pushed off by the next wave of Londoners coming to live the fast and glamorous life.
And the older Londoners sit quietly looking at the new young and vibrant, scarily ambitious new generation, thinking “if only you knew what I know now” and some others would think “if only I had my chance again” whilst others look on happily “I am so glad I am out of that rat race”
Katie is pondering her London life today, how many more years does she have to spend here, and will she ever meet her man, will she wait for him to yank her out of the fast current that makes London and make it all better or will she have to forget her childhood fantasies or at least alter them and start considering her own exit-pace and plan.
Katie is you, is me, is 5 million
girls and more … London
Let’s wake up and smell the Starbucks ladies!
