“Invisible Poverty” is a term that many people don’t even know exists, but it actually describes a very real problem faced by a surprisingly large number of Americans. Unfortunately, it falls through the cracks of our awareness and understanding because it’s so tricky to explain to those who haven’t experienced it firsthand.

A Tumblr user wrote an important post about their conversation with a wealthy friend concerning how hard it is to escape poverty and why it goes so unnoticed by so many.

The post is lengthy, but read the whole thing and pay attention, because the words are powerful.
