I know I’m not actually poor, as most people would acquaint with the homeless or destitute…. But I hate this feeling. This feeling that I constantly have to worry about money and how much I owe people while I don’t actually have the money to pay them back and how much pressure I have on myself to make a living for my family and make a better life than my parents have….. I have loved and appreciated the way I grew up and wouldn’t trade it for the world. I know we’re not the richest family, in fact, I’ve gone to bed hungry before. But I love them more than anything in existence. And I know that living the way I have has taught me lessons I would have missed without this experience.
My ultimate dream in life is still to be able to buy my parents a beautiful house to retire in because they have sacrificed all they have for me and I just hate he feeling of not being able to repay them for all they’ve done for me.
