Since we're talking about fishes???
I'm wishing you tons of luck with any investment (of cash) that your step-dad would care to make into your life.
And you know sometimes, cash CAN cure (put a bandage or act as a bridge support). Cash can also be an 'investment' you make in yourself (education, etc) so that can expand your skillset, making you even more marketable (for income-opportunities that can come your way).
Getting out of a financial dip-holes, and knowing the reasons 'why' or how you got there is key to remedy, and not repeating same mistakes. I hope your step-dad can Connect you to perhaps outside friends (if he isn't able to himself) to steer you in some GREAT directions for this next leg in your Journey through life.
*Takes a Village? Get some fresh perspectives.*
Sometimes, there are things that are outside our own control (like state of economy, world events, or an illness we'd have for a while, etc).
And other-sometimes, all it would take for you to rise out of your situation, is for the chance that someone would 'see through' your situation, and shine a light (black hole), to get to the bottom of why the floor gives out on you?
Mentors can help you to see your pitfalls and potentials, and help you with a plan?
OR, someone notices you, connects you with the Right people-- who 'need what you've got' within you. LOL
Everyone has a Key, that unlocks other people's doors.
I was reminded of this-----
Get a Fish.... or a Fishing Pole?
The old saying--
Give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day--
Give him a fishing pole, and he'll eat for life?
There's a HEAP of things missing from that colloquial philosophy??? hahaha
He'll NEED to keep being fed,
WHILE!!, he gets acquainted with the art of bait-hooking,
the use of the tackle box, and
the need for Lessons from a Wise and GOOD Partner/Mentor to teach the art, to pass on the instinct of timing, and in the 'wait' times to talk about Life and Purpose, and Life's Meaning???
*bizz. bizzzzzzzzzT. *splat*
Swatted that ol'e mosquito before he bit ya!!! *heh heh*
Good mentors too, know how to salt their student... To make them want MORE, To help them LOVE it--
To explore WHY they are doing it,
and to Show how it-and-you all fits in to the Grand Scheme of things.
One with All. ...
*campfire crackles, canopy of stars*
Here... Have another piece of the delicious fish we caught.
*crickets* sound of edges of lake lapping shore at a distance. insects.
*Downs another beer, and offers? *
... nah. Thanks. I'm good.
*smiles inwardly, looks at his student*
Affirms inside, like a silent prayer.
Yes, That you Are..
satisfied, and at Peace*
Gbear.... I wish/pray for you to have the Gift of a Wise Mentor to come into your life.
Know too that, perhaps your dream wants to say that you'll be able to 'land on your feet', no matter what happens, because life has been training you for this. And you DO have help ready (dad) to step in and help you CLOSE that gap, instead of remaining afraid and covering up all that fear and apprehension.
You feel as though you've been doing this a while now, and 'hanging on for life' (paws, dangling cats).
Ever see a cat drop from ledges, a tall tree limb, or high furniture?? LOL, They come down from their perch, KNOWN for being able to adjust themselves mid-air, and smoothly land neatly on those paws, that formerly had clung so hard with the tips of its nails to hang with.
Cats are known for resilience... and their agility. Good hunters, and much lovability?
You've been really really good at re-retrieving your courage (paws). You've 'hung in there' and learned good skills in managing, through all this!!
I hope there is a Positive turn, as a result of the Courage you showed ASKING your Step-Dad for help... With your Future.
BUILD. Steady floor...
