I want to get out of this life. I make $14 an hour. The work is physically demanding, which is good for my health/lifting. But it's so exhausting I come home and do nothing, but drink the physical pain away.
I have an inferiority complex about the fact I do construction work and make shit money. I'd like to go to school and eventually graduate with a degree making around 80k. This seems impossible to me as I'm well aware I'm not nearly motivated enough in my current lifestyle/state. I have $2,000 in savings and lately it's been stagnant due to an increase of drinking.
How do I break out of this cycle/has anyone been in my shoes before?
My plans are to quit drinking, save up enough to graduate community college debt free (with an associate's) and take on loans to transfer to a state school in a STEM major.
Currently in an LTR (1 year) with a graduate student who was summa cum laude, so I know I'm capable of my goals, but my inferiority complex is my biggest obstacle and I'm unsure how to overcome it.
