Hello. I honestly don’t know where to even begin.
I am a 40 male who lives in a very small town in the Bible Belt. Where everyone knows everything about you. I lived my life hiding who I truly was. I always felt alone and I honestly had accepted the fact that I wasn’t ever going to be able to be truly happy. That all changed one day when I received a friend request on Facebook 4 years ago. I received this random friend request and we just started chatting because we lived in the same town. We chatted a couple days and I invited him over for a Bon fire. It was an instant connection with us that night. It was like we had known one another our entire life’s, but had never met. We both say that’s the night that changed our lives. He moved in with me 2 months later and We played it off to everyone as we were just buddies for 2 years. We were so happy together that we finally decided that we didn’t care who knew anymore. That is they ask we would tell the truth going forward.
Since it’s a small town word traveled fast. It got back to our jobs. He was terminated and 5 months later I was terminated. I had dedicated 15 years to this company. Had worked my way to the top. With the sudden termination it caused some financial issues to where in order to keep our house I had to file chapter 13. We found the first jobs we could so we could keep our home. We went to work in retail. Everything seemed to be going in the right track for us. We Hwy was holding out my payments out of my check and his check was paying the bills. We thought we was going to be ok. Then COVID hit. We found ourselves unemployed again this November. So now we’re behind on the bankruptcy payments and they’re threatening to discharge me. And if that happens we lose our home. We have literally spent every penny we had stashed. We’re behind on all of our utilities and they’re going to be shut off soon. No power, no water, no cellular, or anything. We honestly don’t know what we’re going to do. We both start new positions the first and second week of January. But now we’re so far behind on everything there’s no way we can catch up. Some might say now is the perfect time to leave this small town and start from scratch. But we both said this is our home and we are not going to let anyone run us off from a place we love. This is the place where we fell in love. And even with everything that’s happened to us because of the decision we made to be happy, we still have no hate in our hearts for the ones that hurt us. And that’s simply because our hearts are complete and full of love for one another. I could go on and on about our journey, so if you need more detailed info I’d be happy to share more.
If anyone has it in there heart to help us we would be forever greatful to you. We both promise to pay it forward when we’re back on our feet.
I could never ask for anyone to pay our debts off, but we could really use some support to just get back on our feet. thank you for taking the time to read this.
