WOMAN TIRED OF BEING IN “SURVIVAL” MODE & BARELY BEING ABLE TO PAY BILLS

In my late twenties and I’m tired

Yeah I understand our society is not meant to work 40 hours a week. I’m exhausted. I recently had to leave a toxic workplace that was quiet firing me.

Started a new job and doing my best, but feel like I’m walking on eggshells. When will the ball drop? Tired of being in survival mode.

My husband and I aren’t saving anything. We’re in a small overpriced home (2k per month). We tried looking at other options but none of them allow pets or have laundry.

We want to have a family but it feels unachievable right now. We have a combined income which barely pays our bills.

We cook most of the time and don’t spend on frivolous things. We have loans and payments to deal with every months, barely. So how can we buy a home and start a family?

Like what is the point lol. Everything is so expensive. The future looks so bleak.

Netizens’ comments

  1. Not accusing you of it, so please don’t take it that way, but many people in this country seem to have a problem with living above their means, even to the point of putting themselves in debt to uphold the image.
    Perhaps reevaluating what you pay for everything and getting rid of luxuries that are actual luxuries could help you realign your finances to help you work toward your goals (like owning a home) better.
  2. Now is probably the worst time in the last 100 years to benchmark your progress. None of us thriving, we’re all tired, we’re all surviving, just trying to stay employed and keep a roof over our heads. The cost of living is through the roof, bills are astronomical, we’re in a recession….just focus on surviving so that when you come out the other side, you are in a strong position to move forward.
  3. To be honest and it likely isn’t something you may want to hear or maybe you have thought of but put it past is stepping up your game to learn a new skill and get a higher paying job. this goes for both you and your husband.
    you may think that this may be a bit late now that you are in your late twenties but there are just times when you seem like you are doing all you can to save money, living frugally, etc etc., and yet you feel like you still don’t have anything to show for
