Parents are fighting again. The mother is trying to bring me
Parents are fighting again. The mother is trying to bring me into it when it's about how she doesn't want to pay for her adult children, which, sh*t, I don't want to be financially dependent on her at the age of 23 either, I'd love to just die and not have to worry about money, but I'm too weak to do that. so we're both stuck in this bullsh*t argument.
@kbeatrice I'm okay, thanks for asking. The fight has subsided for now. I'm overwhelmed because this is ongoing; my mother actively makes me feel guilty for using her money then turns around and says sh*t like "I'll support you as long as you need," then fights with my father over how he reinforces the lack of financial independence and I end up in the middle of it, but I'm hanging in there.
Wages are not keeping up with inflation. Finding a good job that pays enough to actually cover living expenses is not easy to find as it once was. Young adults across the country are living at home for longer and it's not their fault. I hope you're not too hard on yourself about this. Everyone is working for less these days.
I understand how you're feeling. I'm 21 and feel the same way. I get guilt tripped a lot over how much things cost around the house. I used to give my mom 100 dollars a week for rent but I stopped because I've been trying to save to fix my car issues. Also she kept getting stuff delivered through the mail because she is a compulsive online shopper! In my eyes she must not be as hard off as she says she is if she complains about being broke one day and then you overhear her bragging about how much she makes a year...just irritating....but yeah I feel like I just want to die too. I constantly find myself wishing I had a partner to share the burden with and move out with but i'm single so moving out is just not an option.
