Darlin let me tell you that you are not alone. Many of us have had these same problems growing up and especially after we graduate high school.
As far as your parents, it's not your fault. Even if they did argue about stuff you feel is your fault, if they were still in love and in-tune with
eachother they would've worked through it. I don't believe that arguing causes divorce, it's the breakdown of love for eachother and a breakdown
of communication that causes divorce. So it's really not your fault and you can still have good relationships with both of your parents even though
they are not together anymore.
I have the same money situation that you do pretty much. I work about 32 hours a week and only make about $332 a week, and I am 28 years old with a
mortgage to pay. Granted I have a fiance to help out but we definatly don't make the suggested 3 times your mortgage payment. Point is, it's
common to be short on money, have bills to pay and be short on time. You'll get through it.
Most of my high school mates are doing better than me as well. This one girl I went to school with told me she is getting her masters degree in
teaching technology...I said "Oh cool, I work at wal-mart". But you know, I have little regret and I have many things in my life to be happy about
and I am sure you do too.
At age 19, now is the best time to go through all the going clubbing with little money in your pocket and what not. That way, you won't be going
through it at 30. You'll make it through, I know it!
