For some reason it bugs the shit out of me that they only used one hole punch....

It seems like it would be easy to flip over. I'd love it if the other side said something like "Sometimes a journey of a thousand miles ends very, very badly"

I am currently paying off $14k of credit card debt. This week I managed to make $1,300. Same thing will happen next week. And the next, until it's gone. I can do it. It's just $14k. Two jobs and it'll be fine.


Adventurous-Low9768 t1_j2mdbj1 wrote

Keep going!! I paid off $27k in 2020 and it feels sooo good to be done. Youve got this


Autumnlove92 t1_j2mxdj8 wrote

37k in debt here (20k of it was for a used car I just had to buy after someone totaled mine. I was doing decently before that shit show) Your 14k is nothing, keep at it!


Adr990 t1_j2mis1j wrote

That's great! What do you do to rack that up in a week, if I can ask? Take care of yourself too


FinnishArmy t1_j2n1ybt wrote

Had vacation pay plus Doordash. Then a few hours of doordash after the full time job each day will achieve the same.


[deleted] t1_j2mhyid wrote

Good luck but don’t burn yourself out with two jobs😁Make time for yourself and be sure to spend a littleee bit of that on your own enjoyment/pleasure. You got this!! People have walked away just fine from much much worse

How the fuck do you rack up 14k of credit card debt?


ValyrianJedi t1_j2mrbsp wrote

By buying things on credit?


Autumnlove92 t1_j2mxmis wrote

Sometimes it just takes 1 emergency. My car was totaled in November. I had exactly nothing extra after paying all my bills and whatnot (AND I work 2 jobs by default to get by) I had to put my down payment on a credit card because I absolutely can't go without a car (single, live by myself, no family, America where there's no public transportation) 1 emergency was all it took for me. I'm lucky in that I got the value of my old car back from my insurance (all whopping 7k of it) but then my cat got very sick and there's more shit that went on a credit card. 1 emergency for most Americans. It sucks


Khazahk t1_j2niwhl wrote

Wife and I just took out a personal loan for 10k to pay off a credit card which has gotten up to 11k. We understand finances and pay attention to it. But 2 kids demand a lot more attention and money. Paying twice my mortgage per month for daycare. $600/ week for 2 kids attending daycare 3 days a week. Spent $25k on daycare in 2022, dependent care FSA only let's you save $5,000 pre-tax. Meanwhile churches operate tax free in this country.

I survived a toxic relationship and years later I found out what I went through was called the narcissist empath abuse cycle. I've met so many other empaths who've gone through the cycle and my experience and knowledge I gained from it has helped them understand what they went through also.

Sometimes you have to experience something truly understand it.


DCL_JD t1_j2mxe8b wrote

> Sometimes you have to experience something truly understand it.

Isn’t the whole definition of an empath that you don’t have to experience something to understand it?


polywha t1_j2ptloz wrote

Lol yes it is. You can’t call yourself and empath if you don’t even know what it is homie.

Well, thank you for teaching me more about my first relationship today. Sorry you also went through that.


joyfall t1_j2oon3k wrote

Same here! It was absolutely the most soul crushing painful thing I ever experienced. It ruined my self confidence and didn't know if I could ever recover.

Now after extensive therapy and learning as much as I could about what happened, I'm able to help people in all the support groups that originally helped me.


pipboyover9000 t1_j2mlz75 wrote

Started as a deans list student only to slowly fail out due to mental illness before I could get my engineering degree. I fought it hard in the trenches for a couple of years, somehow found the strength to fight back.

Came back and am now a deans list student 3 semesters running, got my gpa back to a 3.0 and I graduate next December. I’m really ashamed of it but I’m also really proud of myself for not staying down after getting knocked in the head.

Don't waste money on midnight snack. Drink water or something until full.

Wake up early and take care of yourself. Even though it's boring and sickening. It will paid off some day.

Care for your surroundings, they'll take care of you.

Greet first don't be such an arrogant sob.

If you think you're smart, don't find less smart group just to brag something you thought they will appreciate on. Find smarter group to learn from them. If you're stuck on their arrogance and gaslighting. Find group that doesn't.

Just be helpful, don't interfere with other people's lives just To satisfy your ego or envy.

Pay attention to the little things, maybe it's big thing for them. You'll never know.

My brother did that.

I forgive and actually respect him for it. I understand why he went that route.

He did leave two children and two extremely grieving parents behind, who I still catch randomly sobbing for him even 10 years later.

Ultimately it’s your call, and while the grief of the living shouldn’t be a hugely motivating factor, at least maybe consider writing your survived by’s personal letters of goodbye and explanation. It’ll mean so much to them.

Take care.
