GIRL PURSUING DEGREE SOON, CAN’T AFFORD EVERYTHING – BEING POOR IS EXHAUSTING

It’s exhausting being poor

Advertisements

I (19f) am so tired of being poor and so tired of struggling. I’m going to university soon and I still don’t have everything I need and I really don’t know how my mum will afford it.

She keeps saying don’t worry but it’s hard not to. It just hurts knowing how much I’ve struggled in life due to lack of money and how I’m going to university and I’m still going to struggle so much compared to others.

I’m just sick and tired of being the poor one compared to others around me.

Netizens’ comments

  • Just turned 30 here.
    It doesn’t get better. But life will become more comfortable. It just takes people like us more time. And we develop a keen sense of independence, confidence and street-smarts along the way. I pawned amazing gifts just to pay a phone bill. You’re incredibly fortunate to be attending school.
    I’ve got advice for you that I wish someone had shared with me. Don’t prioritize relationships right now. Not only are they hard to keep up with financially, the self-esteem of someone in poverty leads one to be vulnerable to terrible partners. Figure out your goals and set a direction in life first. And good luck.
  • 22 here and fucking same. I hate having to decide if I wanna buy food or take a rest day, i hate feeling guilty for being sick or just needing a break.
  • Be sure to get the most out of university; i.e. find out what career you want to pursue after graduation and work towards it. Do your research, and have a plan. This will not only be especially useful for your future but knowing there will be better times ahead will also help you get through these tough times. All the best, OP!
