Being poor, lots you learn about life, yourself and others from being poor.
When poor, lack spending power, have zero value to those outside of immediate family, and if have no immediate family and poor, have zero value period, except maybe to pet dog or cat, and even they only tolerate you cause able to feed them.
Money is like blood to the poor, in that whenever you pay a bill that you really can't afford to pay, it's like slowly or quickly being bled to death...why?
Cause without money in this world you're basically dead, basically 'are' dead in that you don't exist anymore, have zero value to everything and anyone (as an adult that is)
Money is humanities life blood, agencies feed off money, politicians run for office, not to serve, but for fiscal gain, Governments survive by sucking revenue off of the backs of it's working citizens and so forth. Even churches life blood is money, so why would it be any different for an individual?
I mean if you only have, say, $1000.00 and have to write a check for $300.00, than you're 700 dollars away from fiscal death. That's a scary reality that many face daily, weekly, monthly.
The constant need to earn, even when your body gets tired, it just never stops.

People, those who earn high income to basically do nothing physical, they just don't understand that when physically labor for a living, thy body just starts getting tired after a while, the constant demand to earn earn earn, slave slave slave, just to be broke broke broke, just wears at you after a while.
And those who earn large incomes through Government offices, or admin positions, or talk radio hosts, ect, the idea that you can just work 18 hours a day at the age of say 50 plus, is ridicilous (or however spelled)...that's how people die in Death camps, is by over working thy body.
So has America become a gigantic death camp for the working class? where expected to just drop dead at work while trying to pay bills?
Sad how the majority of companies pay you just enough to barely get by...sounds almost like what communist do, so what's really the difference?
I think my demise is being engineered by 'Satan', or ect forces, in that years ago, tried giving life to 'Jesus', and since then I think Satan's forces have set out to make mockery of my earlier proclamation.
I stopped paying bills when maybe 5-6 months ago, or longer, didn't have enough to pay rent, that's when alarm bells went off, that's when my whole attitude changed, for if could not pay rent, I was obviously prioritizing stuff wrong.
I was blindly trying to pay down bills, even though credit rating already in garbage, I felt this blind mythological loyalty to large credit/banking institutions where the CEO's don't even pay their corporate bills on time, or often file for bancrumpcy where public money bails them out.
Where they earn billions of dollars in interest rates, fees here, fees there, and on and on, and I felt loyal to this to the point of own fiscal demise?
It's like feeling loyal to the mob.
When could not pay rent, I said 'screw it', for here on out self comes first.
There is no worse feeling in the world when income maxed out and still not able to pay rent.
So it was either have a place to live, the minimum requirement for maintaining your dignity, or blindly pay off bills while living behind alley.
I chose to always have enough for rent instead, and to only pay 'hardwired' bills, like auto insurance, car payment, utilities, the essentials.
And since then able to save or at least not 'lose' much money.
Instead of these large credit card companies 'closing your account' when falling behind, they continue to rack up past payments and interests so that you can never ever get caught up, and they think I was going to play that game with them???
Life is short, these institutions will be around long after I'm dead, and were here before I was born.
But while alive, I'm going to take care of self first, like they do.
If I were a bank, or Toys' R' US, or Sears, ect, I'd just have the tax payers bail me out, but I don't have that option. All us poor people have is ourselves, and if single, grown, with no dependents, it's even worse, you'll get no help from no one or nothing.
