With prices climbing, and incomes not doing the same, (plus an unstable global political climate, which often has a knock-on economic effect,) we need to be able to talk openly about all that awkward financial stuff.
Regular readers of DORA might be aware that I am regularly broke.
But I'm very much dependant on my parents. And in my 20s, with retired parents, that's not a position I thought I'd be in.
What am I trying to say in this post, exactly? I'm trying to say that it's ok.
- Drop some change in the charity box by the supermarket till.
- Buy the Big Issue (or whatever your local street newspaper is) instead of a gossip magazine
- Do the free stuff - bring traffic to the websites of deserving people and/or causes, promote them online, etc.
And most of all, never feel guilty for having to put your health - mental or physical - first. You've got to have something left to give.
