You’re happy being on your own, and plan to be that way for a while. It’s great that you’re thinking about your future – as often it’s something we don’t like to ponder on too much. Some of the things you’ve been thinking about might be:
- How will I pay the bills and mortgage / rent if I get sick and can’t work?
- If anything happens to me, will there be enough cash on hand so that mum and dad / my family don’t have to worry about covering any immediate expenses while they sort out my estate?
- I want to leave a legacy for my nephews and nieces, to ensure that their future lives are made easier, because they are also my family’s future.
