Being poor sucks. I looked up some benefits of being poor and none of them are true. "You have nothing to lose". We can lose our house. Outr house was almost sheriff sold twice. "You will lose weight because you can't afford nice meals". False. We can't afford healthy foods so we eat cheap junk food. "You will have time to chase your dreams". No because my mom is working 3 jobs and I work a 30 hour work week and go to high school (onus graduated). I f*****g hate rich people because they have nice things. I have nice things too and I appreciate them more because my mom worked hard for them. She tells me out financial state and I hate. Should I be worrying about this as a teenager? I should be worrying about college but I'm more worried about what my mom will do because my sister is in college and I'm going to college in a few months. My dad doenst care about us because he cheated on my mom who had breast cancer when I was in the 5th grade. He left and moved to Arkansas. He is now f*****g so rich but hates spending his money. My mom was sick and my older sister and I couldn't do anything. The closest family is the next state over. Court was a mess. The judge was horribly mean. And I hated my dad. My mom and sister both became mean after this whole thing and depressed. I learned to not show my feelings and get over a lot of things. stuff doesn't bother me as much anymore. But I see all of my friends going on vacation and I haven't been on vacation sinc I went camping in 2nd grade. It really sucks. There are so many things in life I want to do but I am too poor to do them. Being poor is inevitable for me. It is a never ending cycle that can rarely be broken. Our family will be forever poor. I don't want pity out of this. I just want other people to understand my situation and not judge me for not being like them or having expensive stuff. People don't understand and judge me because I'm not rich and it pisses me off soooooo much. Moral of the story: I F*****G HATE RICH PEOPLR!
