I’m having a very hard time adulting. I believe most of Generation X is still trying to figure it out.
So picture this. A 20 year old, attractive, female, smart, level-headed.
Ok now get this.
Bought her first car on her own when she was 18, a year later it broke and had a hard time finding a job because her mom was dedicated to her grandkids. Finds a new job at 19 but is sexually harassed, quits said job. Finds a new job, job pays well, buys new car on a loan, is fired for calling out one of the managers on illegal things Manager was doing.
Endless stream of not being happy and involved in hostile workplaces because people are straight up scummy. Typically the generation right before GenX.
Girls moves into a house with her boyfriend and his brother that their family bought for us to rent out.
Girl is struggling to pay for car parts, groceries, feminine products, and general necessities. Girl puts those things on a credit card, frequently pays minimum. Girl maxes out credit cards. Girl can no longer pay minimums on credit cards and still can’t afford groceries,etc
What the hell is a girl to do?!
Im struggling to write this because there’s a lot more involved.
This story happens to be more than real. I have been sobbing the entire time writing this. I didn’t get a break, I still can’t catch one. But I’m trying
And I can tell you, I’m poor. I don’t come from a poor family, I don’t come from a wealthy family either. But when you have no available resources, what do you do?! Please someone I need guidance, I need hope. I need to know that there ARE better days.
