I am 43 now and I feel like the future of my kids is not secured yet. Things happens that I needed all my resources during this trying times and the truth is my resources is not enough to cover our needs and seems none will be left for our future only debt perhaps because what I have is not enough honestly but I must not give up HOPE because it is the only word that I can hold to save me not to lost my mind...

I also have this worry. At first it is the pandemic and now there is the war. There are so many unknown things in the future. It has affected to all of us.

Pandemic has affected many now war is making it worse but time is the remedy. So, give it some time, there will be more economic opportunities available, you just need to be available for new opportunities.

Find if any government or NGO program runs in your country to help you in this type of situation

Yes. Keep hope alive. Try to find charities that can help with the things you need. Like Catholic charities. I'm eating much more cheaply. Beans are good, filling, cheap, and are a healthy meal. Perhaps you can get a plot of land also and grow vegetables for your family and to sell. And learn about businesses , even online selling and earning. You could also share expenses with family. Best wishes! And most of all, pray to God for what you need.

You gave me the idea to look for beans recipes. I love beans but I dont know a lot of recipes. I am not a fan of cooking meat along with it. What do you add to beans to make it tasty. Maybe I will add canned tuna afritada or caldelera

@yoalldudes I might just add corn. For black eyed peas I just add salt and pepper. Eating with cornbread is a good combo.

I also this feeling you wouldnt believe goes on in my mind sometimes like giving up. But then I see I am still capable I can walk, read, type. And as long as I am able I can still earn money hopefully. And when I see different kinds of food in the table like banana, grilled fish or fried fish, coffee, I realize oh we are doing fine LOL.

In case your not aware, EVERY THING is more expensive now than what it was ten or twenty years ago. I can't even believe twenty yers went by. So evenif you have resource its not usunusual that it's not enough. I guess I'll never have a family of my own. I even have trouble saving money.

Sometimes in life, we are tested. Only God knows what the future will bring. Your job is to continue to trust and believe that He will not leave you. Keep hope and continue to have faith. The thing about human beings, we are always looking at things from our perspective. A minute point of view. God sees what we can't see and He is in control. Proverbs says, trust in the Lord with all your heart and soul. Do not lean on your own understanding. Rest in the Lord my friend. Rest in the Lord.
