I am in the same boat but always tell myself that THIS TOO SHALL PASS....last nite I had to ask my neighbour R200 to buy my little boy milk.....I did not have a choice.All my accounts are behind but Im paying R100 until I finish,it does not matter how long it will take.

Don't worry there are many in the same position as you! Thank heavens for the credit card, dunno what I would do without it! I am so sorry to hear about your situation, but it's great that you are not depressed. I know it's easier said than done, but try to be positive and say to yourself that you will get out of it and that you will be fine! I have several "mantras" that I say each day and I must be honest with you, they do work to help with the way I feel.

I wish the end will come soon. I cant go on like this anymore. Wondering what I'll do next month and the next month. And each month next months budget looks good until you get there then its just as sheeeeet as this one if not worse.

You get a little bonus and apart from the taxman your car breaks. Whats new. Fcuking life that's what.

And yeah God will provide. So where is he ? And who the hell is he providing for? Coz it sure aint me.

I was actually thinking of putting a post today to find out if others are also struggling like this.....

I have R600 till payday which is next friday. I have no petrol - been on reserve for a day electricity units will also not last the month.

Both my c/cards are maxed out. I pay instalments R660 and R920 per month on them and then i use it again through the month....

My cell's been cancelled I am on pray as you go - so it's please call me's from now on!

I have a pettycash box at work. Thank God.

My hair has not been cut in 10 months. I just cut the fringe all the time. It's so out of style. My nails looks like shit.

I have no new clothes. I tell people its because im on diet that im not buying new clothes - will buy when im thin etc etc etc etc...

From: GOD
Reference: LIFE

This is God. Today I will be handling All of your problems for you. I do Not need your help. So, have a nice day.
I love you.

P.S. And, remember...
If life happens to deliver a situation to you that you cannot handle, do Not attempt to resolve it yourself! Kindly put it in the SFGTD (something for God to do) box. I will get to it in MY TIME. All situations will be resolved, but in My time, not yours.

Once the matter is placed into the box, do not hold onto it by worrying about it. Instead, focus on all the wonderful things that are present in your life now.

Now, you have a nice day.
