Is it sad to feel like wanting more with someone isnt possible when you have help with u/credits? Been seeing someone who has been burnt before (having footed the bill for everything in the relationship) and I want to pay my way as much as I can on part time wages. Obviously this means i get help with u/credit but moving in together would mean i lose all help. It doesn’t seem fair that he’d need to support me and my kids as well as pay for his own. Makes me feel a bit worthless tbh. I dont intend to be on u/credit forever and I’m working on how to make a career for myself but its difficult working things around kids. Finding things difficult right now. Is there any hope?
Yes that is one issue with our generous benefits system its makes it more financially viable for couples with children to live separately.
Try not to be too hard on yourself. You have a part time job which is a great start. As for a career it may require extensive training and years in further education. It is a big decision but not impossible to do.
Lots of people have part time jobs that may not be high on the career ladder but they still serve a purpose 😀
