My family is desperately poor. I’ve actually partially supported them starting around 15. We I’m sorry for what I said when I was docking the boat shirt our utilities cut off regularly. We didn’t always have food. Back in the day when you just didn’t answer the phone because there was no caller ID. It was bill collectors. We didn’t have health insurance. What’s really crazy is that’s not near the worst of it. Dysfunctional doesn’t cover it. Abuse mental, physical, sexual, emotional. I was an adult by 5 really. But it was always hearing my mother wailing about money that haunts me still. I still feel thd paralyzing fear to this day. I’m a CPA. I’m also about the cheapest person you may ever come across. I was the 1st in my family to go to college and chose to be an accountant. What 18 year old does that? I sincerely believe that I was 100% determined to know as much about money as humanly possible and get a degree that led to a stable job.
