Why Life Isn’t Going Your Way

I’ve been trying to wrap my mind around issues buddies of mine have with being “broke”. Not physically, but in the wallet. It truly baffles me when a buddy will call or message me to catch up and they are telling me how bad life is for them. I try not to offer the “quick fix” but it usually heads that direction. Most the time the issue is money. They can't pay their rent, house payment or other bills. I’m thinking, “Dude, you’re 43 years old and you can’t pay your bills? Why”?
