Trusted family members and friends are invaluable as a young adult. Personally, I don't enjoy asking for help. I would rather figure things out by myself than let people know I have no clue of what I'm doing. This was unhealthy behavior and adulting taught me that.
If you are ever in need of financial advice or assistance, try approaching your trusted family members and friends- emphasis on "trusted". Despite the fact that it might feel less embarrassing asking a stranger that you may never see again for help, family and friends are by far more forgiving.
You may never know what you are trying to do that someone close to you had already done and learned from. This post in no way is encouraging anyone to take advantage of those that love them. I am only suggesting that, rather than meet your loved ones as a last resort when things have gone sour, approach them early enough with your financial ideas or concerns so that they can give you honest feedback or advice. Humility really pays; toxic independence is a real thing.
In turn, if a loved one asks for financial assistance from you, it is wise to give what you can part with if you are never paid back. This will save you a lot of emotional stress in relationships.
