I SUCK AT LIFE!

So I have been going to see a therapist for two months now.

I have a ten dollar co-pay and since I never have cash on me I have been writing out checks.

I know... I should really balance my check book... whatever. I always use my debit card and I just never have the time to sit down each day and record what was spent. I check my online balance frequently and it works 99.9% of the time.

well today was that .1% it didnt. That dumb B**** of a therapist (sorry Im a tad angry at this, even tho it is my fault) has been hoarding my checks for two months!

So here I am thinking I have 80$ in my account which was fine. I get paid in a couple days......and BAM! gone! She cashed them all at once.

And i got hit with a bouncing fee of $40....

I suck at life:(

I would speak to your therapist about that though.

sorry. you don't suck at life. it was a mistake. now you know that you need to check your account more often. thankfully we don't write alot of checks anymore. in fact the only check we write is for the house. just ask her not to hold them for so long.

That's not your fault. Tell her to knock it off or she can pay your overdraft fee.

My daycare provider used to cash multiple checks at once and it was $250 a week! I always make sure I have enough just in case they don't cash them on time.

this is where you are wrong. you can hold onto a check for six months if you want. it is up to you to make sure that you don't spend that money.

Quoting -BluEydDvl-: That's not your fault. Tell her to knock it off or she can pay your overdraft fee.

Oh honey, you don't suck at life. It was just a silly mistake. Don't be so hard on yourself.

Wow! She's not very efficient is she? I think I would look for a new therapist.

I want to add, I Suck At Life used to be my mantra until one day I realized that everything that happens to me isn't always because of me! Sometimes, of course, things are my fault, but sometimes people are assholes, or things just happen. So do yourself a favor and try to find something new to say when stuff happens. Maybe you can try something like "well THAT effing sucks, but I can't change it now, so what's my next right move?" I know it mind sound all "Mary Poppins" but the way you talk to yourself about yourself really changes your outlook.

I would speak to the therapist about hoarding the checks. And try and bring cash from now on. 

Sorry this happened to you. You're human, humans make mistakes. I made a $2000 mistake and NOT in our favor about 5 years ago. Talk about feeling worthless and that I suck at life! OMG, just thinking about it, makes me throw up in my mouth!

This too shall pass.
