Expectations to life Ghana vs. Norway

Being a spoiled obroni, who have lived in comfort all her life, with always enough money to put more than necessary on the table, good education, good jobs (?) with all my rights taken care of, I guess I am bias saying that some of my co-workers have lower expectations to life than I have.

I asked one how her weekend was.
She said, enthusiastically: it was good!
I said: Oh, what did you do since it was so good?
She said: Nothing. I'm alive. So it was good.

I guess I'm spoiled.

And yet, you have experienced enough places in the world to realise how lucky you are and how simple the needs of others are.Puts things in perspective for you, I bet! Your direct, straight-to-the-point writing is really pleasant to read.

Hi Yngvild, a funny but yet thoughtful post on expectations that differ here on this planet. Many times I also have had similar thoughts about how the expectations on life might be the biggest difference between here and there.

Well observed.
