Bills Bills and Bills!
December 6, 2017 9:52pm CST
I am having a hard time thinking about our bills for last month. I feel I am the only one paying attention to this. And I feel so stress. My second Brother only pays what they can only have while I will be the one to pay much more when I'm not the one who consume a lot. Three Brothers are not giving there share too. How I wish I can disappear at the moment. I'm tired of filling in this obligation when in fact I don't have means of making money. They know I haven't started working yet and still I am responsible for this. I wonder how they can take this problem when one day I'll be leaving this place? I am sick and I have also a lot of bills to pay but I am shouldering this issue most of the time. Mother is selfish. Brothers are greedy. How am I going to resolve this issue?

One day you will wake up and see that in order for it to stop. You will have to make some changes. and if that means finding a corner of the world you can afford and moving. That is what you will do. Your brothers are always going to do that as long as you keep a warm roof over their heads. But you know what it's hard. and I know it's hard. But in your case change will be good.You will be better off paying for whar you use. you might have a coin or two left to eat with.

i know you are the oldest sibling in your family. but you are sick. can it be not possible that your brothers will pitch in to pay some of your bills? since you do not have a permanent offline work, and you get money from myLot, or maybe you have SSS pension, i think your siblings should think about how they will live if you are not staying in that house anymore

sorry to hear about your situation. It is true. It's not easy when you are the only one who handles all the problems with regards to paying bills. I myself experienced that too. I guess all it needs is to pull a chair and talk about the problem with your brothers. Let them know you are no longer happy shouldering all the bills and that they should atleast cooperate to share an amount too. Also, I do hope you are still able to find ways to smile despite the problem. Cheer up!

Thanks. This one makes me smile. I really appreciate it. If I let them handle this situation for sure. We don't have electricity and water. Because they don't know how to handle this kind of problem. Only rely on me. When all I want is at least give their share.

Well, you should talk with your brothers. It is also their responsibility to pay the bills. You should tell them frankly and with clear words that, it is not going to work anymore. I don't think they won't listen to you. You all can share the percentage to pay the bills. A sound family can only exist if all the members of the family takes equal participation in everything a family has to cope with. What do you think about it? You can just give a try. It will work. Thank you!

Problems may come and go. They may be big or small. They may be or can be solved or remedied. But the solution is. You may take this or not. I have heard this from one of our Church leaders. He said every problem there's a solution. If there's, find it. If there's none, never mind it.
