On Social (In)Security; or Why I'm at Wealthy Affiliate (WA)
I posted this in the reply I gave to an answer of a question that someone had asked. After I wrote this I decided to post it here in the hopes that other people that need to see it might read it and benefit from it in some way.
Specifically this is targeting younger folks, the disabled, and the elderly. All of you are free to read it of course and if it means something to you that's great. If not, I probably don't have anything else for you...... I want to wish all of those at WA the best in their journey to whatever success means to them.
My struggles are what brought me to WA. I MUST make this work, I have no choice. I get less than $900 per month from Social Insecurity after 46 years of working.
I don't want or need anyone to feel sorry for me, but I do want people to understand where some people are coming from. This isn't I want to see the world in my lifetime money I am seeking. It's my kitchen floor has a hole in it and my air conditioning doesn't work in the southern USA summer money.
My life hasn't been easy and much of that was because of my own decisions. THAT is why I like to help younger people, the disabled, and the elderly. Younger people still have time to make choices which can change their lives. The disabled and the elderly? Well, just a little bit of extra money may mean more to them than you will ever know.
Do you really think that those in their 70's and 80's WANT to be greeters at WalMart? In most cases, no they don't. They are there so that they can eat or pay medical bills, or aren't so lonely they are bored to death.
The disabled? I can barely walk the length of my home now. Where could I work? I have more doctors than most people have in a lifetime. THAT is why I try to encourage people to come here, BUT it isn't for everyone.
I truly believe that with time and steady work I can make WA work for me. Whether I can hold on that long financially or not only time will tell. If I can that's great, if not I'll have done my best. It's all that I can do......
Now that I have written this I feel somewhat better. I am going to post this answer to my WA blog in hopes that it can help someone else.
