I had my Ordinary National Diploma in 2015 without no support or help of my parents. Mind you, they are both still alive young and healthy but separated. They have been separated for over 15 years. I am 22.
In May 2016 , I struggled to get a place of industrial training so that I could work, earn some income and save some money. I intend to use this money saved to further my studies. I want to go for my higher national diploma in the 2018/2019 academy session.
I often starve and deprive myself of some necessities in order to save enough money.
The issue now is that my mum keeps asking me for money when she knows the money I have is savings for my education. She is not the only one. My older brother and my twin sister also expect handouts from me. her. And this just makes me feel fed up with life.
Now my mum is looking for money to pay her rent. She has asked me to borrow her N10,000 out of the N50,ooo she needs to pay her rent. Meanwhile before she moved into that apartment, I warned her not to move into that apartment because she’s not working nor trading and will not be able to afford the rents. Did she listen to me?
If I give her that 10k she won’t give me back and she will keep asking me money till all my money is finished.
Now, I am like the enemy of my household members because I have refuse to give them the money. Meanwhile, my elder brother is asking me for an additional N8000 to sort his personal bills when he knows that I am not working.
I know that if I eventually loan my mum the money she’s asking for, I will most likely not get it back. I have only just N97,000 in my account. The pressure is just too much for me too handle and I do not know what to do.
