In the end I have adapted. I still have second hand clothes and furniture.
Life was very hard financially for a long time.
Now when I look at the shops I think lousy taste. I am accepting of my opshop mixed shabby chic style.
I threw out some sandals yesterday. I have had them for 15 years and the heel totally went last night. They dont make things like they used to.
Part of me has become very hard on anti consumer and anti waste ... but over time I have developed financial stability and dont struggle the way you are, and the way I used to.
Dont let a sense of humiliation get you down. Jobs are harder to get in these times.
Nurture the dignity of you. I dont see it in riches and am starting to get away with teasing richer people as snooty tooty or snootikins. I am making friends with a lady who said that I did have to face facts that some people are rich, but she is being nice and we can actually laugh together.
