I legit have zero savings after working on IB for 3 months, feeling scared
So the title says it all, I was wondering if any of you are in the same boat.
As at right now I have USD130 in my account to last till the next payment cycle and while I do spend some money on going out its mainly because my sign on bonus and first 3ish salaries payments went to my siblings who I am/was supporting since they do not work and I do not come from a rich home.
I managed to save about 3k from my signing bonus after I paid the broker fee and security deposit for my apartment but my siblings and a few old friends slowly gobbled up the rest and now I've stopped supporting them because living paycheck to paycheck is horrible.
I can't wait for the stub bonus to hit my account so I can start saving again.
Did any of you live paycheck to paycheck during the early parts of your careers? I feel like a fool and kinda ashamed (had a hard time looking in the mirror after seeing my account) for blowing my savings on my family not because they are bad people but because they feel like I did not sacrifice anything since I technically have a stable job so no one feels like I am under any pressure even though I am, and now I have to turn down happy hour for the next couple months till I get back on my feet again.
I grew up poor and promised if I get a job I would never want to feel broke again but here I am in MM IB feeling just that way, I think thats why I feel ashamed of myself.
