Tell Me Your Story.

Let me make this short. I'm 20 years old and I already have a lot on my plate. I pay rent for our apartment, I work 35 hours a week, and go to school. Now I don't want to be complaining because I am blessed in the fact that I have a job and my mom and sister in my life. But there are moments where I just lose hope and want to just give up and I know that is definitely not an option because I do have to worry about my family. The reason for this post isn't to complain about my life, but to see if anybody else relates. The people I meet and the friends I have seem to have a comfortable life while I constantly worry if my next paycheck will cover the rent and the bills. Though, I'm not saying they don't have issues themselves. I just mean I haven't met anybody my age struggling like me. I know there are plenty of people out there who are relate. So share your story with me so I can stop feeling alone. Thank you for reading.

You will be just fine. Take every day step by step and appreciate it.

I moved out of my parents home with my boyfriend at 17, It's tough, and I get your struggle. I would work a fulltime job only to come home to be a house wife, -laundrey, cooking, cleaning, etc. and that was all by choice. There was nothing forcing me into that lifestyle but myself. At the moment I am living at our place on my own and I understand the not knowing if your paycheque will cover the bills. But stay strong. I am also 20 years old & honestly, wouldnt change my life. As hard as it can be, it only makes me stronger as a person
