I honestly feel the same. Every time I’ve posted my Venmo or cash app which has actually done nothing to help me (haha) it leaves me feeling gross. Like, I know some of you have heard, “work twice as hard for half of what they got”. It’s still true today, and is very much a truth. Asking for help feels like a last resort. It feels like when you can’t find toilet paper. It feels like when your car breaks down and the commute on bus is just a bit too far so you ask for a handout.
It’s sad really. Even for me, drag keeps my life very comfortable. These are really hard times. Everyone could use a little help. I guess we should just acknowledge that it’s a lot harder for some of us to ask.
