I grew up living below average means. My parents never went to college. In response I had a childhood that was inadequate.. I couldn't afford clothes.. couldn't afford healthy foods. I couldn't go straight to a 4 year university after high school. They wonder I resent them. if I ever start a family or decide to have children I'll make sure I'll have the funds to do so. I think it's so irresponsible.

You can only hold on to resent for so long...
What good with that do?
There's so much people who came from the life you had,
only to make great success out of it.
You can only blame people for so long... before those same fingers are pointed back to you.
Your past is gone... you can't get it back.
But what you do have is the now.
Work towards something.
Become someone great in life.
There assistance programs set up for people like you who can't afford to go to College.
Have you ever thought of financial aid?
You can only blame someone for so long before you become the problem.
Being angry at someone takes too much negative energy.
Use that amount of force into doing something positive.
You are capable!1

wow, can you be any more ungrateful? Surely you should be thankful you had a roof over your head, a bed to sleep in and food on the table. There are many kids, even in the developed world who dont have that luxury.
it also seems like your making a lot of excuses for not bettering yourself. what was stopping you from earning money to pay for uni?
My parents were poor when i was growing up. My clothes were hand me downs from my older brother, which my parents bought from charity shops. We didn't have the best food, but at least had food. Neither of my parents went to college and I dropped out of school at 15. I worked shit jobs to make ends meet, and joined the army at 20. I left in late 2011 and went to college in 2012. I passed college and now im at uni.
Trust me, if your not where you want to be, its not your parents fault. its yours for not trying. Dont take offense to that, but its the truth.0
