Can i use “afford” when i am not strong enough for anything (not money) I can’t afford to be sad anymore. I can’t afford to you I can’t afford to be awake I can’t afford to work in this place. I always use this word to explain my sentences but most of people don’t understand. Isn’t it correct? What should i use instead of it?

Yes, you can. However, the second example is not correct, we dont use it like this. It doesnt make sense.-- I can’t afford to you. You could say, I can not afford to be with you.

For the last three examples, I would assume you meant money, unless there was other context. The first one is more obviously, emotionally. Emotionally, I can’t afford to be with you Emotionally, I can’t afford to stay awake much longer. Emotionally, I can’t afford to work in this place.
