    Question the ones tied to that narrative

    "I grew up with this narrative that to get a good job I need to go to school," she says. But the job she has "is not enough to pay the bills." And the bills she's worried most about are the ones tied to that narrative: the $30,000 she owes in college loans.

    What dose "the ones tied to that narrative" mean? Thanks for help!

    Re: the ones tied to that narrative

    A narrative has been mentioned in line 1.
    The bills she's worried about are tied to the narrative.
    The bills she has are for college fees.
    The narrative mentions the need to go to school.

    "tied to" means related to. It's meant to be amusing. It shouldn't be too hard - all the information is given.
