Help Me, I'm Poor

Let's discuss something here.

Money and all of the problems that come with it.

I can't be the only person that does pretty much anything to avoid looking at their bank account statement. I can't be the only person that gets really proud of themselves if they decide against buying that late night Chinese food that they were craving. I can't be the only person that questions buying that $5.99 item on Amazon once I see that $7.99 shipping fee added onto it.

I know I'm not the only one.

We've all heard that saying that 'Money can't buy happiness'. And while I'm sure that's true,I highly doubt that Oprah Winfrey is avoiding checking her bank account in the slightest. (But then again, we never how she's doing after she was giving away cars at the blink of an eye for so many years.)

Now the good thing is that most of us probably aren't as broke as we think we are. Even if you have only $2.75 in your bank account, you're probably still doing better than that person that has a negative balance. And if you're the person that has that negative balance, you're doing better than that person that has a higher (or would it be lower?) negative balance than you do.

My point is (if you've made it this far, you probably think I don't have one and we'll just have to agree to disagree) that someone is always going to be struggling more than you and someone's always going to be more successful than you.

(With me, the number of successful is definitely more than the number of people that are struggling, but to each their own).

Own your financial struggle! Keep putting off buying those things that you keep putting in your Amazon wish list. Splurge on that ice cream that you probably deserve after deciding to work on your day off. Continue saving for that Apple Watch that you know you can't afford right now but you definitely will be able to get one day.

DO WHAT YOU NEED TO DO. Channel that inner star player.

Or ignore all this advice because I'm in debt myself and who am I to be advising anyone?

Your choice really.
