For years, I road the bus to work or walked to work. It really helped me to save the big bucks to put toward other things that I needed to save money for. And most recently, I choose to go through and look at the many apartments in Stone Oak to find something closer to my work. All my planning has been working out well thanks to me being patient and mature with my finances. It makes me feel good to be on top of things. My life wasn’t always this way, and I can remember often being stressed because I did things in such a haphazard fashion in the far past.
I married someone who always had a lot of drama in his life. If he wasn’t creating drama, his friends and family created it. At first, it was rather exciting to be with someone who could handle a crazy life, but then I realized over time that that I don’t like to live my life like that. Over time, stress started building up. And drama takes up a lot of time in your life. I found that I was simply worn out all the time and not keeping up with things. I was having trouble keeping up with bills, keeping up with being happy and so much more. I was constantly putting out fires. It was too much for me.
When I found that my husband was just a troublemaker who was pretending to be a good guy, I knew I needed to leave. But he had hidden a lot of his assets from me when I tried to leave him. I finally realized that it was simply time for me to go, and I could start over on my own. Once on my own, I had to live a simple life so that I could get by every month. Now, I am in control of my finances, have a car and have moved into a nice apartment.
