I was on my way into work this morning (bleh!) and I was thinking about the things in life that were hard to accept but you had to, you know, the hard pill to swallow.
For me, it was accepting that I am raising a baby on my own, with minimal to no influence from her father. I never imagined my life would take this turn, but here I am. And I dont think I would change a thing, because of the lessons I learned.
What about you?

That I spent tens of thousands of dollars on an education that I most likely won’t put to use. And will be paying off that education for a long time to come. I’ve found a job that I absolutely love totally outside of the field I studied, and once we have kids, it’s SAHM all the way…

I screwed up my under grad education and payed a lot of money for a degree I’ll likely never have a major use for. I’m back in school paying out the butt for a second degree. It’s going to take a few years of working A TON after graduation to clean up this financial mess.

@MissMaine and @maureen9004…I am in the same position as well. I spent so much money on my bachelors and am still with that same company that I was working for when I was working my way in college. Its not even close to the field I got my degree in…but I do like my job

My big pill is being in so much debt for school and not even finishing. I have a lot to show for it.. my beautiful son. And I know it just wasnt in the cards for me to go back now because I am the one that makes more money, I imagine I will go back.. But you never know and now 30,000 dollars later.. is hard to think about.

That my love, partner, and fiance might never find a job commensurate with his education and intelligence, and that this is destroying his sense of self-worth.
