Money and everything depending on money makes me feel desperate, angry, sad.
I was born in Ukraine in early 90’s and my family was considered as wealthy comparing to the vast majority of families in Ukraine. We used to travel a lot, had everything that a person needs for living and even more.
But my parents divorced when I was 9. My dad left us without child support, he helped when he remembered about me or when his new wife didn’t know about that. And my mother had to work where she didn’t want to, so we could live somehow. She was crying a lot. I was growing up thinking that you can only stealing or work at 10 jobs at once in order to afford a good life. In fact, it was true in Ukraine.
But time changes. There are many ways to earn money legally not being a salve, but living a happy life. But I work and the awful job which I hate because the only thing I can get here is money. And nothing more. And I want to earn money doing something that makes me feel happy and useful for people, nature, planet earth etc. I love art. With current job I don’t have time and energy for it. And this job also doesn’t make me wealthy.
Money is also can spoil my relationship with my partner because we arguing a lot about it.
I hope one day I can change the way I feel
