Middle class poor

Middle class poor

Let me start off by saying, this is my first post. I probably wont get fancy, or talk in great sentences, but this is after all, a blog right? Let me start off by saying that I am a financial professional for a great company, my wife, is currently going to school to become a PA (physicians assistant). We are a middle class family, where to everyone in the outside world, I make good amount of money, and it seems like we have a great lavish life. Now, I'm not saying we splurge every now and then but the fact is, money is tight, but you wouldn't know that because we don't show it. Is this something that is frowned upon? Am I suppose to show when im feeling super stressed on social media or when im hanging with friends? I do have a few friends that I vent to but for the most part no one really knows what we go through. So Facebook and everyone on the outside sees this successful couple living comfortably. That is true, we do have a nice apartment but the struggle to pay the high rent is tough. Everyone thinks financial professionals should or probably make a lot of money, but in the industry im in, its a dog eat dog eat world out there. I am an entrepreneur you see, and it is not the slightest bit easy. I have had sleepless nights and mostly stressful days. I work hard for my money but it never seems to be enough. this is the part where I drift off and think, this isn't how it was suppose to be, is this what it feels like to be broke? am I going to be struggling for the rest of my life? Then I think of the less fortunate. The people who have no home, or the ones who have a house or apt that is not the best quality or doesn't have furniture. Am I just being ridiculous? I should feel grateful I have this nice looking apartment that has air conditioning, and furniture to our liking, but this comes at a price. I could move to a less expensive apt. one that might not have the best appliances or anything, but aren't we trying to move up in the world, not down? you see, this is the where I struggle to handle what I am doing. I live in a great neighborhood, We have the furniture and everything we need, yet im still struggling to pay all the bills. I am on a swing that makes me feel great and horrible at the same time. I will catch you up on more of the story to come, I have to go see a client. till I return.

      Welcome to HP. This is a good basis for an article, but understand that this site is not a blogging site. If you blog, your work won't get read and you won't make any money. On the other hand, if you expand this post, put it in third person, break it into capsules, etc. (all of which you can learn how to do in the learning center), this could really be a great article. Write a lot of them, and you could eventually earn some extra money that can ease some of your financial woes. Good luck.
