Financial hardships

what do you all do when you find yourself in a financial hardship? i’ve been so depressed for the past few months. summer is always hard for us, but we are barely scraping by. i have to come up with 600 dollars today to keep my electricity on. going to ask for help from community resources and possibly family if that fails. i just feel like such an embarrassment. we have kids and i feel like i’m failing. i know it’s not forever, and things will turn around soon, but financial crisis is so heavy and suffocating. how do any of you push through it? wishing i could curl up on the couch and sleep for weeks. i need some encouragement please.
