I’d like to stay anonymous for this request if you don’t mind. I’m 18 years old, and coming near 19. I usually don’t ask for help unless I really need it, and it’s come to that point.
after I turned 18 I was driven out of my parents house due to all the emotional and mental abuse growing up. Once I had a choice to make my own decisions and finally stood up for myself, things just got worse and I was kicked out with a few bags of clothes and whatever was in my pocket. Since then I have jumped around towns and states, and helped by my friends who let me stay there for a while. I had no vehicle either so I either got a ride from someone or I walked. The difficulty has been having enough money to stay healthy and safe. I’ve looked and found work wherever I can to make a little bit of cash to keep going. Mostly labor work for farming or construction but it wasn’t much. I haven’t stayed long in a single area because I don’t want to overstay my welcome. I know some of you are thinking “why don’t you just go back home?” I’ve considered it but I’ve basically been disowned by my family. They refuse to help me out at all and so my friends are the ones who are generous enough to provide their hospitality. I’m thankful for their assistance but I know they struggle to make ends meet on their own. I am fresh out of high school and am in desperate need of help. Even the smallest help with my financial situation would help so much. I’d be able to get to where I need to go, and help out with the expenses that my hosts have been taking care of on top of providing and caring for me. I’d be grateful beyond imagine if I could even give the people who have taken me in at my most desperate time, something to make up for their time for me, and to say thanks. Thank you to all who help for your upmost generosity. Warm regards and God Bless.
