21 here, female.
So I Decided I didn’t like the career I got my associates degree for. Can’t afford the bachelors and right out of school interior design pays very low. Too low to pay loans and bills. i signed up to be a union electrician in training and I’m still struggling to get accepted. I’m stuck in a waiting game because I’ve done all I can. My parents don’t like the idea because it’s not a traditional 4 year education and I would be a women in a male domainted field. I feel like this would make me happy though. Working with my hands, good pay, good time off when you top out. My dream has always been to travel.
I’m stuck living with my family (extremely toxic environment) and my partner of four years (not toxic but lives with us. It’s a long story.) And bonus, Covid is still here.
I can’t afford to move out and I hate it here. I feel stuck in my life, like I’m unable to move forward no matter what. How can I help myself emotionally and physically?
