Just wanting to rant. It’s a shame I work so hard through the week and I don’t have anything left after paying rent… maybe 50$ which will go to some groceries

I'm also struggling to make ends meet. I lose sleep worrying about it. I just pray to someday find a job that will lead me to my financial freedom.

I feel this so much! It makes me very frustrated in the direction the economy is going in. $50k salary used to be a decent income now you can barely make ends meet wth it.

Cost of living crisis is hitting us all hard...in a weird way, I'm relieved that I'm not the only one going through this! Was starting to feel like I was spending my money wrong

I know exactly how you feel. I often feel the exact same way. I have nothing left and it makes going to work hard because it feels so unrewarding. I am so sorry you feel this way. I would suggest looking for better offers and seeing if you can make more.

Sometimes I feel like that too! I started budgeting or writing down where my money was going. Give it a try; an excel spreadsheet or even a notepad will work!

I know! This is such an unrewarding field to work in sometimes. And with the cost of living increasing but my salary isn't, it is only going to get tougher!

I know how it feels to be in that position. You really need to learn how to spend your money well. A few side gigs won't hurt. That's how I got through this position you're in now. Hope it gets better for you!

I feel you. Living on a paycheck too paycheck for quite a while now after being sick. All my savings went to my medication and it really sucks. I work to live.

It's a shame that the economy is suffering and nobody is doing anything about it. Inflation is real and man it is hard. Hope it gets better so you can save up some for your leisure bud.

I feel you. Inflation is totally hitting us right in the face. I am exhausted but my bills aren't going to pay themselves.
