This weeks word is TRUE. This word is a doosey. The TRUTH is what you see on this blog and what I am in real life…doesn’t always match. I’m scared to put the “real me” out there on this blog because I think people will think I’m a crazy nut-job that needs to be institutionalized..okay not that crazy but pretty close to it (depending on the day). Over the last few years I’ve been working through a lot of stuff. Grief. Unemployment. Underemployment. Being Broke. Depression. Loneliness. Living in tiny quarters. There are probably others that I can’t really think of. There have been times it was a struggle to get out of bed. There have been times where I just cried all the time.
Many days I feel under-appreciated and feel really close to getting into a ton more debt just so I can live on my own. And then all these dumb articles get shared and posted about how “Millenials” are lazy, stupid, “entitled,” etc. etc. and how everyone hates us and we all need to “grow up.” But you know this awful economic crisis has NOTHING to do with why things have been tough for us. They make me so angry because they think they know us and know how to “fix” our problems but they don’t. Not everyone has the resources that they think we should have. Not everyone has rich parents that can find us “the perfect job” making $60k+ at age 25.
We’re just trying to get by with what GOD handed to us. I’m a firm believer that god has a plan for everyone and all those cliches that god laughs at our plans, when he closes a door he opens a window, etc. etc. but sometimes when you’re at the lowest of everything it’s hard to see that eventually you’ll come out alive and better because of it all.
