Have you experienced having nothing? When you are already drain, no money, nobody to turn to, no one to hold on because everybody is seeping your everything. Taking the last drop of you. Relying to the very last detail of your life? What would you do if you are in this shoes. Are you willing to sacrifice everything, ignoring this people who are very much dependent on you?

I know what it's like to be down and out with no money. I went through a year of hardship with no job and very little in savings. The people around me that I would always help out couldn't seem to help me. I realized that I never really had any friends, just people that took from me and when it was my time to get help, there wasn't anyone available. It's not a good feeling. There is always light at the end of the tunnel, Hang in there, things will pickup and continue to do good even if the people around you are not appreciative.

Rasniki, Thank you for the enlightenment. I am now at the very lowest part of my life. Struggling to hold on to that faith that everything will work out fine. I know there is Someone up there who will never leave me. It may be a hard road because I can not leave the people who need me, but who can see the other side of the rainbow.

do you feel tired about it ,i think if there are more people dependent on you,at least ,it is proved that they believe in you,no matter what is happened,you must persist,even it is hard ,but it is the life meaning,i think.

Yes, quanquanzhang, I was almost on the brink of surrender but thinking of these people who depended so much in me, I tried to hold on. Thanks.

I have experienced having nothing to my name, not even money for groceries or rent. But thankfully, I don't have anybody else relying on me. I am just depending on my own self. It was when I was working in another country and that particular country's economy took a nose dive. Our salaries were always late until the company owes us up to 4 months of salary. It was really terrible. I have used up whatever little money I have put away in savings. I am too proud to borrow money, so I just took any sidelines that I can get, like bookkeeping for small merchants.

Hi nita! Yes, just recently I just run out of money because my training required so many things: boarding house, electricity, water, etc. I don't know where to go and I don't want to borrow money from my friends because I don't want to be a burden to them. So what I did is to pawn my ring. Until now I was not able to redeem it.

I have experienced being broke financially but never I experienced losing people to care for me. In my down moments- it's my loved ones who saved me always- all the time. I maybe poor when it comes to money- but I am well-off when it comes to love from people around me.

I have already surpassed that kind of life,wherein I have no one to ask some favor because they have also their wants and spending.I have just realized that,even how hard life has become of me,there are still people with a big heart who still accept me as a true friend,even if I did not ask of any favor and help,he just came to visit and help me recover without asking for a return or even benefit,but just muttered that I must help myself first and just ask for his help so I can recover.He was really my very best friend,that I have also help before without anything in return.I have never ignored the people that depends on my earnings,yet I just let them know my entire condition by that moment,so tightening of the belt was my only solution,yet I slowly recovered and now I have really manage my finances not to be of the same problems as before.I have really thank my best friend for all his help.

I have experienced this... actually when i was in college. :D and sometimes now when i ran out of budget i would just bring food to work so i won't have to buy anything as i wait for the salary date. I remember back in college when we were down to nothing, my mom would cook 2 packs of instant noodles and put a lot of water/soup to it... then all 4 of us would share it.. i think it went on about a year or so, then we had to transfer to a smaller house where there is only one room and we even have to bend a little while sleeping. haha that was the toughest days... We have often had to go home from school walking, my brother had to be doing the same or ride freely in the jeep and ask for people to ride as barker so he'd get a free ride... It was tough, alright but we never stopped hoping that everything will turn out well.. and it did. :D

Thank goodness I don't have bloodsuckers around me who will take every single penny i earn! I haven't experienced anything like that, but if i were I would definitely save my own self and my family first before giving a penny to anybody.
