“Folks who never do any more than they get paid for, never get paid for any more than they do”
Well lets see, I guess today I am winging it, I saw something this morning that pretty much disgusted me. I have to say i have been at the VERY bottom, I mean HOMELESS, yes! after my hubby had an aneurysm we lost everything, our home, our two cars, our jobs because we were always in the hospital, we lost it ALL. Young and afraid and expecting our second son, we were in a bad place. Our so called friends were nowhere to be found and we had nothing, before we had to leave our home we ended up having our utilities cut off several times because we couldn't afford it.
Through all of this we didn't ask for anyone to give us handouts, yes it was tough and no it wasn't because we were proud BUT it was our responsibility as ADULTS and PARENTS to get up get out and DO SOMETHING! we did any and every odd job we could to collect cash to get back on our feet, we lived in basically a dorm for almost 10 months with our entire family while we hustled to get back all we lost, my husband wasn't even released to go back to work but we were denied for disability and my "handicap" husband who suffered severe brain trauma went and found any and every odd job he could with his two hands and we rebuilt from NOTHING! Even now we have a beautiful home that is somewhat empty because we lost EVERYTHING we had and we are slowly rebuilding.
So forgive me but it BOTHERS me when grown ups ask for everyone to help them do this that and the other and they aren't helping themselves, I find VERY distributing, and even worse if you have kids, what are you teaching them? to be lazy and depend on others to get them out of sticky situations? FIND a way, figure out a way you BUST YOUR BUTT to make ends meet and take care of your responsibilities as an adult, it sucks but you have to do it and you can, stop complaining about what you don't have and use what you DO have, we didn't have much at all but we used ALL we had and we live a comfortable life right now! I don't work for ANYONE but myself SO I have to push each and everyday to get on MY grind and do any and everything I MUST.
Today stop making BS excuses and stop crying and stop waiting on someone to pull you out of the ditch you are in, PULL YOURSELF OUT! There are no reasons why you cannot do it! If we did it with two kids, no money and basically no resources, then YOU can do it! Figure out a way, there is ALWAYS a way out!
