What's stressing you at the moment?

Postby King John Blaze » Sun Apr 17, 2016 4:07 pm

I'm 26, engaged, purchased my first property back in December have no debt (besides mortgage and student loans) and recently started a new job that pays me £48k.

I can't remember the last time I felt stress free and genuinely happy. Hated school as I got bullied. To avoid being bullied at college I ignored most people and as a result had no social life. Felt depressed and insecure for the time I didn't have a job till I was 17 and since finishing university have felt pressured to financially exceed.

I think my biggest problem is that I am a little burnt out. During University I worked on the weekends so never had a day off. When I finished university I immediately started working 2 jobs (72 hours a week) and never took a break since. No gap year, no 2 weeks abroad just constant studying or working since I was in school.

Sorry if I am ranting here. What I am trying to say is, no matter what stage of my life I am at, I never feel like I have no significant worries, there is always a load on my mine. For a year I was stressing about getting a house. Now that I got it I am stressing about our planned wedding and successfully completing the probation period where I work.

I just wanted to know with you guys, what's currently on your mind? What are you current stresses?

I also what to encourage people to offer help to anyone they can also.

My wife and I are attempting to save to buy a house (at least put 20% down on one) and we were doing great until she lost her job. We had to use our house fund for bills. She finally got a job offer that starts next month butI don't know if we have enough time to save up the money by the time our lease is up here in our current place. At least we have a financial advisor.

Live in Iowa, looking around the quad cities. The houses aren't too bad near blue grass, I just don't want to shell out a ton for mortgage insurance.
