I’ve never been poor. Not like you describe it. I did have 70k dollars of debt that I kept hidden from anyone. I can relate to the drive to make money. I haven’t been able to stop for a second and say, “okay, let’s write my book.”
It’s always like, “no, I can’t. I have to get rid of the debt. The debt. The debt.”
At age 31, I still don’t own a car, live with my parents and afraid to take a meaningful chance at doing something truly life-changing because it would probably require a lot of money that I can’t afford to spend now.
Not easy. I hope you pull through.
