Default "Money can't buy happiness"? FUCK OFF!! It can.

I know my problems arnt as serious as other peoples, but i really need to tell someone.

I hate the saying "money cant buy happiness" cuz its such a fucking lie. My entire life my family has never had money. Up untill 5 years ago i was naive to what my life was really like. At that point i was kicked out of a private school i was going (because it was the ONLY school i could go to) to because my father couldnt pay the fee. I was only 13 so i didnt fully understand the seriousnes of not going to school.

[ran out of words]

I then didnt go to school for 3-5 months, untill we moved country because 1. my father didnt have a job. 2. My father owned a lot of money and had court summons.
So he decided to run away yet again (we had previously moved from house to house every year). So he asked his parents for money (again (we had also prievosly lived with them for 7 months)) and flew to the next country where he luckily found a place to stay.

Please show me where you can purchase happiness? Happiness relies on what is known, and what is not known.

I always ramble on when i try to talk about my past, so ill sumarize my past 5 years.

After not going to school for 4 years therefore not graduating highschool We then continued to move every year gaining more debt, untill we drove around in a truck (imagine about 3-4 meters high)filled with our possesions for about 4 months, also slept in it (4 people (me, parents, brother and dog)) we end up in 1 bedroom apartment barely any money (father still stealing food after 2 years so we could eat)...

You said that your father "ran away again", as if he tends to run away from problems. It sounds like your father's problem is not money issues but personal issues that come out in decisions concerning money, relationships, life choices, etc.

Money is just a tool. Nothing more, nothing less. A hammer is also a tool. Nothing more, nothing less. If you have a tool in your hand, it doesn't make life happier. You can hold that tool all day long, you can even play with it, but it doesn't change you. It doesn't change your life and it cannot give you happiness.

Now, you can use money like you can use a hammer but in the end, it was only useful to a point. You can do a lot with a hammer if you use it correctly. Same with money. But in the end, a hammer is a piece of wood and metal glued together.

Money is just a piece of paper or a dot on a computer screen. It cannot give you real joy.

[Fucking word limit!!]

Have to move in 2 months to god knows where (streets most likely). So im now 18 years old, no education (doesnt make an idiot though) living in foreign country where i dont speak the language and dont have a passport so i cant leave (also no money though).

Ive been considering suicide for 2 years. The only thing in life which now intrigues me is death. I know my problem isnt anywhere near as serious as other peoples, but i cant see anyway out of my hopeless situation.

Although we've lived different lives, I've been through things you haven't been through and you've been through things I haven't been through, I'm glad I met you! You have a great life worth living and you can't imagine that road that is before you.

I've had many friends that were forced into slavery, some as children and teenagers. Others were just... in it since they can remember. But, they have come out of that dark, dark, dark place. Many have been tortured and abused and used and thrown away and been on the streets and left for dead and sold as an items but they have been rescued out of that life! I have many friends, whom I consider extended brothers and sisters, who have a wonderful life, great friends, tons of hope and a FANTASTIC future!!!

You are no more or less than them. You do have a future. You do have a life. A number of my friends who were in that "pit" of inhumane treatment, had often wanted to die. Many couldn't imagine living their life any longer the way it was. They couldn't ever imagine living any other life than what they were in.

BUT THEY ARE FREE NOW! It wasn't money that saved them. It wasn't suicide that saved them. It wasn't toxic chemicals that numbed the pain.

And if they can be free, so can you!

Sorry to be off topic but the word limit here is huge. I think you are getting to the edge of the text box and stopping. If you keep typing it enables a scroll bar, or you can click the two small down-facing arrows in the top right (next to the square with the As in it) which makes the text box bigger so you can see everything you're typing.

Sorry, I just wouldn't want you to get too frustrated by typing small posts when TTL actually enables some pretty bulky posting.
