“We all have a budget.”
What happens when you are in a position to have to care for multiple people in your family. And the income that you are bringing in is just not enough to deal with the burden? Then what you are stuck with is the decision to try to make more money, or cut some people off. But since you might be less obligated to cut people off, then you may have to decide if it’s in your best interest to try to find other methods for making money. But how do you make more money, because it’s not like money just magically appears into your bank account. You have have a skill of some sort that renders you the ability to make more money.
When you are working somewhere for a very long time, and you know that your income is not cutting it, ask for a raise. Now, it sounds easier than you think because what happens when you get turned down? How do you deal with the rejection because you do have to come to work again tomorrow. and now it creates a weird environment. So, are you prepared to walk off the gig so that your family can do better.
Who are these people in the household that you have to care for that are causing you to come out of pocket? Make sure that you can care for them with the income you have or make them pull their own weight as well. If they are wife/husband and kids fine, but other relatives can cause a strain on you. So know what you can handle in life.
