Roommate tensions escalate over influencer dreams 💼

Living with roommates can be stressful, especially when aspirations don't align. In this case, tensions have reached a boiling point as one roommate's dream of becoming an influencer clashes with the other's struggle to make ends meet.

After witnessing the boyfriend's mental breakdown due to overwork, the other roommate in this story confronts the girlfriend about her lack of income and frivolous spending. Things escalate quickly as the girlfriend becomes defensive, leading to a heated argument about the logistics of influencer life.

Despite the boyfriend's plea for financial support, the girlfriend refuses to get a job and instead focuses on her dream of inspiring others. Is this selfish or admirable?
