Believe it or not many people struggle in the same way as you are now, just we dont see it and rarely hear of it.
I do believe there is a lot of work you can do on your view of all this. Please dont take offence but one day down the track you'll look back and be proud you made it, you struggled and you did it by yourself.
Let's be factual- you can only improve your situation if you-
- increase your income
- reduce your expenses
- reduce your expenditure
Things were worse decades ago. My dad didnt have a car until 35yo as they couldnt afford one. Bus and trains everywhere. That doesnt help you but it is a way of realising that struggle street could actually be worse.
I would set up a meeting with your parents with the purpose of pointing out that your education is at risk if they cannot help you and that their income levels are so high that it means you are on the minimal level of help from the Govt. You can only try. Perhaos they could pay your rego and provide some petrol money each week?
A thought. In 1989 my wife and I were struggling financially. I purchased a tattslotto ticket for $2. I told my elderly female neighbour that I was friends with and she said "you could have purchased a litre of milk for your children with that money....you'll never get anywhere without hard work, perhaps a second job"?
I then build cubby houses in my garage and started up a lawn mowing round by knocking on doors, over and above working shift work. Slowly we came good.
In the small town we are in now about 3000 people we spotted a 15yo boy pushing a lawn mower around on the streets.
I hope I'm not humiliating. It is a fact that balancing the books requires more income than expenditure. The important thing right now is you keep thinking of ways to improve your situation rather than allow your situation to consume you.
I hope that helps. Reply anytime
