Hi, my daughter is 25 and a single parent to a 3 year old. She is struggling financial despite working 3 days a week, although its zero hours. She is in a downward spiral and in survival mode and is extremely stressed. I cannot relate to that because there was 2 of us and we both worked full time, although it was tough we had 2 incomes and each other.
I feel guilty when I buy myself things or go out as that is money she does not have. I buy my grand-daugher clothes and pay some of the rent as we are grantors, as well as helping her out with weekly food shopping or even giving her food.
She spends most of her weekends on her own, she does not drive and I feel pressured (my own pressure) to be there for her in all aspects.
how can I overcome feeling guilty?
