YOUNT IN FOCUS: Let me explain my situation. I am a working mother with two children (one 9 and one 7). Although we have disagreements, my husband is generally good to me and our sons. Still, I am bored with my life and I feel suffocated. Consequently, I want to go overseas on my own to study and later work. I believe that we should all live our dreams and if I don’t do this now, I’ll be too old (I’m 28). Some friends are pushing me to go, while others say I should stay with my family. I’m confused. What does lama think? KT, Thimphu
