OK hear me out. I was raised privileged without a doubt by great parents. But when I turned 18 my parents gave me the boot. I didn't get a shitty car, money for school, nothing. I lived at a friends house and saved up money until I could buy a bike etc etc. TL;DR i've struggled for everything I have from 18-25
OK so, last year I ended up making a decent amount of income, so I took some of it and now I'm enrolled in college finally at 25 years old, so I can start a real career (ive been an electrician past few years)
But I just turned 25 years old, and.... SUPRISE! i have a large trustfund that my parents have perfectly kept a secret my entire life. Apparently them forcing me to struggle was the plan all along, knowing that I was going to be handed money in the future they wanted me to struggle financially and learn life lessons and all that bs
so here's my question, I suddenly have an absurd amount of wealth. I know this sounds fucking stupid, but my last 7 years of my life ive just been focused on making as much money as possible. well, suddenly now I have it. I was going back to school so i could get a job in finance and make a decent living. But now, what the fucks even the point? Im very confused on what to do with my life anymore. I guess im still in shock, but... wtf do i do now? It feels like if youre playing a video game, and then all the sudden half way through you unlock cheat codes and the game is no longer very fulfilling
what do i do i just am confused... do i remain unemployed and just get new hobbies i enjoy? should i still get a degree in a field that was ment to make me money in the future? wtf do i tell people? do i still pursue a career which is probably not very fun anyway??
