Have you ever been totally broke?

Almost all of my life. And how I felt? Simple. Desperate. Empty. I felt desperate AND empty. It felt as though I was running on fumes, and my wallet needs fuel. When my wallet is lean and starving like a starving Ethiopian in the barren wasteland deserts of Africa. It's all skin and bones, and its stomach is ROARING for some "greens". When my wallet is empty, I feel empty, as though it's deeply connected to me. When I open it up and see only the bus fare money I still have, it needs to be fed, and so must I. We are BOTH starving for money, and we are feeling financial hunger pains. That's how it felt.

The worst thing that made me feel broke was when i was terminated from my job. This happened during those times that i have no one to turn to. My friends were no where to find. That was really devastating that i have no savings then except just enough for that week. Thanks for my positive attitude that i was able to find a new job at once. SO it's rewarding staying strong during these times. Thanks
