Life sucks.

I'm tired of being poor.

..Closest to death you can be and still be 'alive'

but alive, LOL, for what?

To barely pay my bills(and sometimes not) and nothing else?

Life just fkn sucks.

Death is the greatest thing I fear. But I might as well be dead already.

The stress and weight of financial insecurity is one of the hardest things while also being one of the things many people have the least sympathy for.

Hoping you catch a better break sometime soon.

Sorry about your situation. I know how you feel though. My wife had 5 kids in 6 years and I swing a hammer for a living. So yeah we were poor, but somehow we managed to smile and have fun. I think companionship is really important in that kind of situation. Being alone and miserable is a lot worse than being miserable with a bunch of family around if that makes any sense. We were all in the same boat and managed to keep our spirits high.

What you want and how you want to be, are positions beyond the one you're in right now.
You're destroying the moments of happiness you could have right now because you don't want to accept your current situation.
Wealth and material take time to build and it just doesn't happen over night.
You got be careful. You cannot ignore how things are right now for a vision of a future that may not be - doing so will wreck your journey to success. And that's what it's about, success.
If you go to work and pay your bills and have no money left, congratulations, you are successful. Do it again...and again. With each round, your success will grow because you will learn new skills every time.
Meanwhile enjoy the little things because it's all anyone has in the end - including the powerful and rich.
Hope this helps

Having lived far below the poverty line all my adult life, by choice, I've seen that many burdens are self imposed from trying to live up to unrealistic expectations. The simple solution, though often difficult to implement, is to change one's mode of living so that reduced circumstances don't necessarily lessen enjoyment of life.. gotta roll with the punches & come up smiling.

Riches have wings. The person who is dirt poor today may be a billionaire tomorrow, and vice-versa. Try not to base your happiness on money, but instead on things that cannot be purchased -adventure, experience, family, friends, knowledge, skills, training...you can make a life out of just learning everything there is to know about one subject, and once you're entirely focused on that, the money and financial obligations often take care of themselves.

Find the courage to do something that gets you out of the routine living. Explore something new, something different, something that can stimulate your senses. You can do this at no cost. Choose to do this anyway and despite how you feel.

Your circumstances may indeed be difficult but there is a way to endure hardship with a smile, or at least acceptance until change comes.

Rest assured nothing ever stays the same. A positive outlook certainly helps speed things up.

May you find ease and guidance soon ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ
