C'mon people!

Ok, so I have to get something off my chest.I grew up in a relatively poor family…though I never knew I was poor.I remember my parents working and going to school and my mom sometimes worked more than one job.Nothing we ever had was given to us.I grew up and went to college, got a job, and moved out on my own...nothing was ever handed to me and I’ve had to work for everything I have.I am certainly not saying I’ve never needed financial help because I have, but I’ve always tried as hard as I can to do things on my own and not have to ask for help.If I’ve ever had to get help, I’ve tried to pay it back in one way or another.Since I’ve been married, Matt and I both work for what we have and haven’t been given anything.We’ve had some help from our parents from time to time at the beginning when there have been some situations beyond our control, but we’ve always worked and made sure we could do what we needed for ourselves.Neither of us would ever think to go ask our parents or anyone els…
