It is not yet too late to fix your financial condition, instead it is only beginning now. Read books and articles on financing instead of relying on family and friends for advice. Make your own decisions.
Make changes when necessary:

It is never too early:
Start as soon as you can, on saving for you retirement. If you start early, you will have more than enough money set aside for the time when you are old and unable to work.

Learn about taxes:
Knowing about taxes will help you to determine how much money you will have left after the taxes are deducted from your monthly income so that you can decided whether the current job will let you take care of yourself and your needs.
