More often I don't anymore. Sometimes I only get to hold it for a few days and then suddenly it's only my food allowance that's left. I want to buy some things for my self like a white blackberry phone but I have to prioritize more important stuff. I feel tired of this routine already and it's making me feel stress I feel like I am going to get sick. Have you felt this way before? How did you cope up with it?

Not really no. Nowadays I just wait for it then divide it to pay for numerous bills. But now I'll try to be more excited, I plan on putting even a little of what I earn to my savings.

I feel like all these years all the money I've worked for got wasted. It's time I see them go to something useful

I know the feeling, thu this past years I couldn't really say all the money I've worked for went to waste. I didn't buy anything for me yet but atleast I had bought something for my parents, this time I'm saving for myself, I still pay some of the bills for them and my siblings maybe that is why I can't avoid getting stress sometimes. I think it's the best idea, it's something that you can never regret if you use it to something you really wanted to.

Sometimes I feel that way. Sometimes I want some extra income to buy those I want. I totally can relate on you in this. Currently, my wife and I is planning to put a small business for us to have an exta money to cover some expenses and save something for the future. I hope this will materialize.Also, I hope you can find ways to augment your regular income, search the web for sources that are safe and not scam. Good luck. Thanks

All thing that you got is what you done.You have to enjoy and accept your salary.There are some people out there who have no money for food and life.If you wanna buy something better you can save your money regularly for few months from your salary.After several month you can buy anything you want.People who can manage salary well,will got good result in the future.

Your absolutely right tedifa I know I should be thankful for having a job and food to eat an for being more fortunate than others, it's just because sometimes the emotional part of my brain refuses to cooperate with the logical part. I know it's lame but I guess it just normal to feel the stress once in a while. I will definitely do what you said, saving a little aside each month so I can buy what I want. Thank so much ..

Hi, I wish I am as optimistic like you, maybe it won't be a big deal if it's not causing stress right? But as what I've said maybe this is just normal for everybody with responsibilities.

Hi, Exactly, the least we can do is breathe and pray to be healthy all the time so that we can keep on providing more important things that we need.

Hi friend, our expenses are very high while compared with our salary, we are in need to face our financial issues. We must avoid unwanted spending like dinning out, buying junk items and others, save some money in this way. It will surely help you when you need money. We must try our maximum to increase our earning by various ways to compensate this loss

Hello, Yes, your absolutely right. I hope somehow the prices of the primary necessities will go down though in my opinion it is quite impossible in this current crisis we are going through nowadays.

I had to face lots of hard times before and I encountered them with much difficulties. Many times I had borrow from my matternal aunty. Govt has given us a decent national pay scale and I feel a bit ease now as to leading my family. After having withdrawn the money I straighly go to pay my debt what I had made before I withdrew my money. I would feel relax of a tense mood for wether I could have paid my debt in time.

Hi , I try my best to avoid borrowing money because it's just another thing to think of. And when I have to think of bills and budgeting even before I get my salary makes me feel tired. I really should find a way to fight stress like this.

Be thankful you are still earning and having a regular salary while there are people who are jobless no matter how they try to look for job. I know we want to buy things but we need to prioritize other necessities first. I am still excited each time I reached payout here in Mylot. Thu the amount is just small compared to regular salary offline- still I am thankful that I am earning extra online.

Hi , Yes, I know I should be. Thank you for reminding me. Maybe it's because I'm feeling tired more often lately I am starting to be irrational and whiny :P. Goodluck for your online job then and I hope you earn more than the usual. :)

I always feel a little bit of excitement whenever payday comes. I used to worry about stuff before and paying bills, putting off some money in my savings account and budgeting my allowance for until the next paycheck. But now that we are a two-income family, my husband told me that my whole salary must go to my savings account and allowance. He takes care of the bills. I have to say that it is much better than my previous situation, but we also have more responsibilities and obligations now. One example is, we're the ones sending my siblings to school and we bought a house.

Hi , It must feel less harder to have someone that helps you and think what's good for you, not someone who puts the pressure in your shoulder and keeps reminding you of your obligations. Sometimes I feel like I want to disappear . It's hard to save, budget, and send money at the same time. It's easy for other people to say, you should keep your salary to your self but I don't think I can all of enjoy it thinking that there are people that also need it. Have a great day.

I'm not excited anymore to receive my salary since I know that most of it will be spent to pay my financial obligations like the tuition in school for my son, mortgage, bills..etc

Hi :), I also thought about this for married people, one example of my naivity is to think that it will be exciting to be married but now that I rethink about it with the responsibilities, it's not that really exciting after all. Don't get me wrong I still want to be married, it's only my views of it that had changed. :P

I have always been a little bit excited about getting my salary, because I always have a list of the things that I would like to buy next time I get paid. I will treat myself when I get paid, and then I will always only have enough for my food for the rest of the month. I don't think that this is a bad thing, because it just means that you have a lot of the month to look forward to the next one. I would never want to be the type of person who didn't look forward to pay day because I think that this would be very boring if this were the case.

Hi, I used to feel this way, every pay day I treat my self for delicious foods and clothing but I started to feel not secure for my future anymore just having fun, I started to save my money so I can buy something that I can use for a living in the future but I think I am being paranoid for setting a deadline for it and trying to catch up.

I do feel like these days are never going to end, if stress are getting to you, its serious, meumeu, I have been stressed before and its not ok, I think you should take a rest and look for another job with higher salary or earn online to give you extras.

Hi wongchoiyee, Thank you. It's not that I hate my job, it's only because I feel like my responsibilities are getting into my nerves, I can't get what I want to have to think that I am not even married. Since I worked here I never had the chance to have my full salary just to myself and it makes me wonder how it's like.
