Being responsible, owning the situations I get myself into and the consequences that come with them, and money management has been things I’ve tried managing efficiently for the past few years. However, even with my degree (which I thought would be all I needed to earn a great living), I’ve been finding it extremely difficult to survive. I am 24 years old living in the state of New Jersey and have officially come to a point where I can’t even feed myself.
About a year ago, I was blessed with a job that allowed me to get my first car and apartment. It wasn’t much pay, however, I managed to keep up with my car note and rent while being able to save money. I finally felt as though I had a secure career path. A few months ago, my department was completely cut out leaving hundreds of people without a job. I’ve been jumping from warehouse job to warehouse job since and have not been able to keep up with my expenses.
Now, my car has been repossessed, I’ve gotten evicted, my credit score is below a 600 preventing me from being able to get a car, get a new apartment, or pay off my student loans, and simply being able to eat everyday. I am also 6 months pregnant with twins. My ex boyfriend was nice enough to let me sleep on his couch until I could get on my feet but I’ve been finding it more and more difficult to figure everything out on my own. He’s recently been hit with losing his job as well meaning I won’t be able to stay with him much longer.
I am still fighting, praying and working as hard as I can to get in a better position and I refuse to give up on myself or my children. I’m young and understand that things like this are temporary. However, with no assistance, I’m asking that someone sends me some sort of assistance to help pay off my debt, get a car, and get an apartment so that I’ll be in a better position to carry out my life’s mission. One day, I hope to be in a position where I could come back on this website and help as many people as I can. With having no family, no mentorship and hitting rock bottom, I’d want nothing more than to be able to position myself to be able to help others going through similar circumstances.
Thank you for reading this and I truly hope and will be beyond grateful for whatever I receive.
