Stuck

3 years, 3 months ago

Hey guys its been a little while since I’ve posted but I feel like I’m stuck in a rut a little bit.

Without going into too much personal detail, here are the basics. I’m 22, I live at home with my parents, have a part time job, and going back to school next semester (2 weeks). I love school and plan on finishing here in the next few years. But I feel like somethings missing. I’m getting frustrated with living at home because my dad is an addict, but with my current job situation I can’t afford to move out. I’m trying to get a new one, no luck so far though. I would love to be on my own again and independent. I lived on my own a couple years ago and really enjoyed it, had to move back home though due to money. I’ve got a loose plan with a couple friends to move out in a month or two, but who knows. I’ve been trying to keep positive by meditating, doing yoga, being involved on this site, and its definitely working, but I feel like there needs to be a big change in my personal life. Anywho, any advice?? Sometimes it feels good to just talk it out :D

If you want to move out, start making some real money. Put 10% of your income away into a special financial freedom account, each month. Don’t buy useless stuff, this includes smokes, weed and tasty stuff. See if you can make money off of a hobby or something. If not, there are still plenty of odd jobs around no matter where you are. Doing this, you will soon have a lot of money. A job is only one way of making money, there are lots of ways, and many of them are better than a job.

You’re not gonna get out of this situation doing “conventional” stuff. The idea of moving out with your friends sounds great though. But it’s always good to have backup plans.

It all comes down to two simple things. How bad do you want it? And how much effort are you really putting into it?

Ooh sound advice. Never really thought about making money from a hobby. I love to draw and paint, maybe I could use this to make some extra money. I think I’m coming to realize I’m going about it wrong. If I want to see change I’ve got to make it. Good to hear from ya Manimal thanks :)
