Admitting to this as a 23 year old is going to leave me quite vulnerable, but I have to fix this. My problem is I don't know how to live on my own. I was raised by mentally ill parents, and they literally taught me NOTHING during my entire life. They are not capable of teaching.
I am absolutely retarded when it comes to this subject.
At this point in time, I don't know anything about insurance, finances, taxes, cars, houses, banking, really anything to do with money beyond how to count it.
So my question is, what resources can I use to learn how to live on my own? Like books for example. What resources do you recommend? I need more than just a few tips. I need to learn the whole 9 yards. And please, no jokes, i'm not bullshitting here. Appreciate your help.
Trial and error is the solution to most shit in life my dude. Parents cannot hold your hand man. I'm 21 and most of the shit I know is down to my own doing. My father might have gone to the bank with me to open my first bank account but all the nitty gritty, that's down to me taking interest. Insurance and taxes, all you need to know should be available over the phone or on official government websites etc.
Google will help you with general shit man.
With regards to money and shit, Rich Dad Poor Dad is a great book although not the how to guide you're looking for. It's a business geared book but it talks about taxes, money and what not. It's a great book to get yourself in the know. It shows you what it takes to be rich and what prevents people from being rich. And I mean, none of the stuff you mention is a problem when you have the right amount of money right? It's one of my all time favourite books and a pretty quick read at that too.
