It happened to me some years ago. I had no money at all. All I did was I tried my head off to sell the things I had: books, clothes, etc just to keep my head above water. Why do you think this happens? Does it also happen to you. Please share.

Hi there! It did happened to me once. I pawned some of my jewelries and never tried to have it back. I sold my car too cause I don't have the budget for its maintenance anymore. I have credit cards and house bills to pay and I don't have enough earnings during that time so even though I don't like to sell my car and my stuffs, I sold them. I still can take some of the earnings from our family business but I didn't. I figured its my own financial problem so I have to solve it on my own. To me it happened because I was careless before in handling money besides the sudden change of fate in my life. I do have a nice job before and I'm earning good. I didn't think of my future that well. I had to stop working because of some family matters. I lost track of my expenditures and when I realized, the amount was way over my monthly earnings. We don't want these things to happen but sometimes we are just unlucky. Like the saying goes, the world is like a wheel. Sometimes you're up, sometimes you're down. I do believe these things passes in one's life every once in a while. Ciao!

Hello yanzalong! I have tried it too. I remember when I was studying in college, I only have very few allowance because we are not really that rich and that my father is really working so hard just to send us to college. My allowance isn't enough, I have to admit it but I don't get angry with my parents. What I did is made some projects and let them pay for it.
