My father was just recently laid off. I feel horrible. We might have to sell the house. He was left this house by his grandfather. I love this house. I'm scared. I'm already out of the house, in my mid twenties...but I'm scared for him. He doesn't know what to do. I saw him cry for the first time today. I didn't know what to say or what to do. I just start crying randomly. I can't help it. which makes him feel bad too. Which I know he already does. I just so badly want to be his support system adn I'm failing miserably. He's always the strong one. And now when he really needs me I'm not being a very good support system for him too.
He's been with the same company for over 30 years. Never written a resume in his entire life. He asked me to help. i have no idea what to do. How do you fit 30+ years of experience onto one sheet of paper?
I'm just so lost right now. I don't understand how this happened. We always lived within our means, worked hard...and now this. He has little savings because he paid for my sister and I to go to college. Now neither one of us can help him out. My sister is barely keeping her head above water in Fl and i'm in grad school.
I dont' know the point of this. I don't knwo what type of advice I'm looking for. I guess I just needed to get it out. Had to tell someone bc he hasn't told a lot of people yet. I can't betray his confidence. It's our secret....and I refuse to betray it. I just have to buckle down and study hard...and pray to get a good job this summer. I just don't know what to say or do. I wish i could just magically make it all better...
