My family and I grew up pretty poor, we had financial assistance from all sources, assisted housing, etc. Life wasn’t fun but we made due.
After graduating from uni, I became the first among my classmates that has never gone overseas. I lived under my parent’s rules and couldn’t do anything outside my home or invite friends over. I was more or less a prisoner.
Shortly after graduating, I got a full-time salaried office job and things were looking great. Unfortunately, due to the rule above, Our family was forced to pay a lot more due to my additional income as the financial assistance is based on household income.
For the first 6 months, I lost well over half my salary just to cover home expenses. I covered close to 85% ($1300+) of the monthly fees while my 2 siblings and parent covered 15%. While doing so, I felt cheated, why was I paying for so much while I got back so little?
Why do I got to pay this much while they just lounge around? After the 9-month mark, I decided to look for an apartment and move out. I gave them 3 months of warnings before leaving.
After I moved out, my family were forced to pay for the last 3 months as if I was still living there.
I did not help them and told them I needed to worry about my own living situation before I can help anyone else. They called me an asshole for leaving so suddenly and forcing them to pay 3 months of rent as if I lived there. They also asked for money help but I couldn’t, I had student loans, furniture, food, etc. They called me an unfilial daughter for not helping the family out.
What should I do?
