I feel like a failure, financially my family and I are going through it,there’s some days where we can’t afford food so we struggle until we can afford something... nothing is going our way. Yesterday I tried to sell an iPhone for the money so I could help provide for my mom and the buyer was a total scammer and wasn’t legit... I don’t know what to do... I can’t take this anymore but I don’t wanna leave my mom cuz I know I’m all we have

I was in a similar situation to you a few years back , my family couldn't always afford food because the price of rent was so high . We ended up looking for help from a charity and got food from the local food banks every now and then when we were really struggling , maybe there's something like that near you that could help you out until things improve ? We moved to a cheaper place and we're doing a lot better now it just took us a while to get there so stay hopeful :)

I've been in this situation a few times myself. Most people seem to go straight to where can I get more money. What seems to help me most is seeing where I can save the most money. What monthly bills can I get rid of. Which can I reduce (you would be surprised what calls to your monthly services can reduce by if you ask)

They say money doesn't make you happy! But it certainly saves a lot of stress if yo have some. *hugs*
