Being broke can teach us a few things about ourselves, our friends, and human conditions. It's an emotional roller coaster. The best things about being broke as hell are:

Your bank is a comedian.
The idea of a 401(k) is just a joke, and so is retirement.
You've learned to cope with anxiety because it drives you into the stages of grief:

Bank account denial
Bank account anger
Bank account bargaining
Bank account depression
Bank account acceptance, payday is just around the corner.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner all look like grilled cheese or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

Having no money teaches you to appreciate the little things in life, and free things, like hugs.

At least no one tries to borrow money from you, and a shopping trip is a visit to the Goodwill store.

And just remember, the condition of being broke is just temporary. The once-a-month check will arrive on the appropriate day next month.
