Man, I can't tell if life is going well for me right now or not.
I'm 22, living on my own with my gf in our own luxury apartment that we pay for in a nice neighborhood. I have a well paying job with full benefits, retirement plan, PTO, etc. but **** just keeps popping up.
Last month my radiator in my car went out, $500 to get it fixed. My dog got sick and the vet bill rang $250 out of my account. My temp cap I got on my tooth when I was hella young got damaged and my tooth was in bad pain so I had to drop $185 to get it fixed on the spot after my insurance covered most of it. It'll be another $185 once it's all completed. We just moved into our new place, but we're mismanaging our money and struggling when things hit us.
I can't tell if I should be grateful for what I have that can cause these issues, or if I should be depressed that all of these things keep happening right now. All I want is for us to not stress about money and bills and just be able to live through the days. But then I wonder too, does everyone have this issue? Stressing about bills, money, debt, etc.? Or am I just screwing all of this up cause I have no idea what's normal and what's not?
