You living the American Dream or Nightmare

 

  • Graduate from University and Land a “dream” job with the opportunity to pay off our ridiculous school debt
  • Buy a new car with minimum monthly payments that gets us into more debt
  • Get married and get into some more debt for the expensive ring and a wedding we didn’t know half the people
  • Work longer hours to get a promotion to pay for ALL THE DEBT we have accumulated.
  • Work is looking dismal because I’m constantly stressed and to tired to be with my spouse in the evening
  • We buy a house that we can barely afford chaining me to a high stress job and now with lots more debt
  • We have a child and now with lots more expenses daycare, sports, camps, private school etc etc
  • Father and Mother are working crazy hours to provide. (sometimes for just the basic necessities)
  • We are spending more than we can afford or are living paycheck to paycheck
  • To take a break from the chaos we pay for a vacation for much needed family time using credit card debt
  • We have accumulated more things than we need and can afford and in turn need to keep working to pay for it all
  • We are so busy working that we turn to quick unhealthy alternatives for our family
  • We barely have a few hours with our children even for sit down dinner together.
  • Our weekends are filled with running kids around from one activity to another and family relationships suffer
  • Our children are glued to their devices or caught up in activities that we have little to no meaningful conversations OR relationship building moments with them.
  • We wear our badge of busyness with pride
  • Children are at school all day in classroom settings with minimal exposure to outside real world environments (occasional field trip)
  • Our children suffer from many mental illnesses, depression anxiety, ADD, ADHD, and we think how the heck did that happen?
  • We want to give the best we can so we put them in better schools, private tutoring, competitive sports, other extra curricula activities, phones, nice clothes, latest technology adding to the stress and draining the bank account.
  • We then encourage our Kids to go to college to get their dream job
  • Before we know it they are in this repeating this wonderful cycle we call LIFE!!

Health Deteriorates, Relationships Deteriorate, Money ? What Money…

Welcome the current American Dream. (NIGHTMARE) But if you have managed to do this without getting into debt, props to you for not falling into this nightmare!!!
