>>25648378 I know this feel. But you gotta use it as motivation to build a better life for yourself. One of the only things keeping me from killing myself is the desire to succeed despite my shitty childhood and economic standing. I want to be able to carve out the life I want from fate's cold, dead body, and I'll do it out of pure animosity.
>grandfather orphaned during great depression >his brothers take care of him until he's 17 >joins navy during WW2 >survives >gets out, uses GI bill to get education >marries grandmother >winds up getting a PhD paid for by the government to be a rocket scientist >loves learning his entire life >raises all his children comfortably middle class >helps them out financially pretty much their entire lives >parents grow up in idyllic baby boomer setting >go to college, no need to join military >get good jobs, economy makes it easy to live middle class lifestyle without much effort or sacrifice >make many foolish decisions as adults that prevents them from accumulating wealth (investment mistakes, didn't save, bought houses and cars that they couldn't really afford) >have their own children >starting to slowly slide back into poverty >blame everyone but themselves >I grow up, get decent education thanks to grandfather's lessons >went to uni, no financial support, took out massive loans >grandfather dies >can't find job after graduation >parents threaten to kick me out on the street because I'm not successful and make them look bad to their boomer friends >wind up joining the navy just to survive >parents pretend they never said all that hurtful shit and act like they're proud of me >other siblings are developing weird psychoses from how we were all raised and what they saw happen to me >father is no patriarch >it's up to me to become wealthy and respectable enough to take over as head of the family and prevent everyone from sliding back into poverty and debt
It's a lot of fucking pressure, and it's hard to give my siblings the knowledge they need to make good choices when they're being influenced by my shitty parents, the electric jew, and the university jew. They're starting to wake up now that I'm accumulating wealth but they keep making stupid choices (not studying in college, buying expensive garbage, taking out bad loans).
>poor family >got a job while attending cc >planned on going transferring to a specific uni, get accepted >parents tell me I can't go to university and they'll only pay for my classes at cc >stop going to school and continue working full-time at my job instead >parents act like this is my lifetime "career" choice and that it was the better option >get harassed by ex-schoolmates about my job and have customers telling me I'm wasting my life (I agree) >want to die from embarrassment every time I send out a job application and never receive a response, because nobody wants to hire a twentysomething with no college degree
