Hey guys. I’m a little stuck with myself at the moment, so I’m asking for a few support tips.
Me and my boyfriend are pretty low on money at the moment. We can just pay for the necessary things and that’s really it. I don’t necessarily feel bad or sad about it. Since we still have a lot of things around the house. We may not be rich with money but in my eyes we are rich with all the things we have. It is frustrating however, and especially difficult since I have to seriously bite my nails sometimes to just not buy something. But I really can’t afford to impulse spend at the moment.
Also, I’m still looking around for work. I’ve been jobless since a month or 2/3. I had to quit because of ADHD issues (surprise surprise!). I do have a horse stable on sight that has experience with ADHD. So I’m putting all my efforts on that stable in hopes that I can work there. There’s not much to find since covid is still pretty bad over here in the Netherlands, but also because I graduated on a low level in college so I can’t find many things on my level as well as, a lot of people of course don’t take anyone who has ADHD. And then I of course have the struggle of ADHD itsself which makes searching for a job a tough task.
The biggest problem right now isn’t that however. It’s my boyfriend. He’s incredibly unhappy that we have this little money and puts all the friggin focus on that as if we have no money at all. And I’m here like: if you really need to, sell your VR set. That’s not a necessary thing but we do have one. Sell the other PlayStation. We have 2 PlayStations. One of em is the brand new PlayStation 5. We have enough to afford our needs but just not enough to buy a lot of extra things since we also need save some money for emergency situations.
How do I cheer my boyfriend up? Focusing on money is not gonna help. We will get there. I’m trying to take care of it. I’m just done with his negativity about it. And every time I try to talk about it he just continues to be negative. Even if I try to be positive.
Does anyone have any advice?
