I'm so embarrassed. I made like $8800

I'm so embarrassed. I made like $8800 dollars this year. With my child support $14,000. I just KNOW I'm capable of better. In my defense, my ex just left me and I wasn't expecting it. I'm doing what I can with what I have. Anyone who thinks they want to be a writer better think again. But I know life is going to get better- I KNOW IT. I know it in my heart of hearts. I am going to have the life that everyone dreams of having- and everyone, including my ex boyfriend AND my ex husband, my mother and anyone else are going to regret ever being so mean to me. They are going to wish they hadn't treated me the way that they had. And me and my kids are going to live it up. Everyone is going to watch from the sidelines while we travel and have a GREAT life- all the while wishing they had never said the mean things they said and played the stupid tricks they played- because I WON'T forget. We're going to be so affluent and well off everyone is going to kiss our a$$es major big time. But it won't matter... because I won't forget.

  • Well, being broke with kids sucks. Bad. Is there any way you can get a better job (for now) while continuing to pursue your writing? If you are capable of making more money, you should. When people have kids there are certain sacrifices that they must make as parents. I would be willing to sacrifice my dreams to give my child a better life, but hey, that's just me. I just want to say that I am 19 years old, in my very first apartment, and I make about $20,000 a year, and I am broke and struggling all the time, so how the h*** do you make it with kids on less than 15? I am just curious, that is not meant to be mean.

  • If you're really a writer, I'd expect more from your posting. Try getting a day job and writing as a hobby. I used to want to rap and I got nowhere. Now I'm Vice President of Sales of my company and I do rap on the side.

  • It's good to have goals, it helps you stay encouraged (believe me I know, I came from a single-parent home and we struggled for EVERYTHING). Just make sure your dreams don't distract you from what you need to do to make them come true.
