I feel powerless in regard to that stupid bank, that's for sure. And yes, I feel like there's no safety net. I mean, I have people who are my safety net, and that rocks. But it would be cool if I could provide a financial safety net for myself.
hmm..okay..so the bank is stupid only because your unable to repay
debts you alone accrued..thats cool
As for safety net...its nice to know you have a crutch to hold you up when the going gets tough. It'd be great if we all had those. Could this knowing perhaps cause you to be a wee bit irratic about going 120% gusto to re-structure your full independance? Meaning, it could be a sub-conscious thought....like..."oh it'll be right, i have a safety net to catch me if i want to give in a little"? Do you ever think about what its like to be homeless and not knowing when your next meal will come? I have...and it gives me the drive to take responsibility for my security..as little as it is.
