I'm 19 years old and I've been struggling a lot to keep it together. I have had 2 jobs in the past 7 months, one at a low-key cafe where I was only 20 dollars a SHIFT. It wasn't much money but it got me food, the second job was in an office. I lost BOTH jobs because I wasn't qualified... I don't understand how I wasn't qualified, I tried so so so hard.. I really wanted these jobs. I have had 0 luck. I come to my local library everyday filling out applications, and going to stores and restaurants asking and begging and I've had no luck. I don't have a car, I don't really have anyone that can help me. Right now, I live with my "father" and he makes me pay 1000 in rent for my room, and I know if I don't have it he'll kick me out again. I have friends but we aren't close and they come from families with a lot of money and I'm very embarrassed about all of this... I'm not sure what to do, please help me. I'm running out of options and I don't want to resort to doing anything illegal..

It's terrible what you're going through. And I don't know what to tell you to make your situation better or to cheer you up. It sounds like you're doing the best you can and if you keep that up, I'm 100% positive something will come through for you. I don't know what the deal is with your father and why he seems to be making the situation worse, that makes no sense to me. Maybe you should try opening up to your friends about the situation. I'm sure they would love to help you the best they can. Even better would be if you have other family to reach out to who would be supportive. There are agencies out there who will work with you to find work, you should look into those. And if the situation truly gets dire, I'm sure there are shelters located nearby. I sincerely hope everything works out for you, be safe.0
