Thank you to those of you who come onto this site with the purpose to change anothers life.
And to those in hardship I wish you the very best, stay strong and calm, if/ and when I’m in a better financial state I’d like to help as many of you as possible.
Anyway, my name is Sean and I’m young enough to turn my life around (24), I’m not holding out much hope on here but if someone reads it and it helps them too then it’ll be a good deed.
A bit of history about me, I started my life off very well and I had a very good lower class upbringing and always considered a smart, witty and good person.
Jump forward a fair few years and I started working in the catering industry and going through promotion after promotion until I’m asked to train to become a head chef.
If I had been smarter at the time I should have taken it because what followed was my older brother (by 4 years) asking me to join him as a carpenter and help him set up a business with him.
But he needed a van, a few “small” investments and a helping hand
So I thought I would do the decent thing and help my sibling out, to gain maybe a bit of respect from the family. So I bought him a van, paid for licenses and materials as of when it was needed.
£10,000 later and there has been no return on profits, he has not been paying me consistently for the last 10 months and I needed to take two loans out to cover costs of rent, bills and basic living.
I’m fully aware now that I won’t get what I put in back out, and I also know he has no intentions of paying what he owes as he has other family members to pay back..
..other family members I can’t go to for help because he has already given off a bad impression of repayments, so I could never ask.
I apologise for the rant, I’ve been bunging this up and it makes me feel slightly better for just getting it out. Basically I have three loans totalling £6435.88 I would like to pay them off and have a clean slate.. move away from my from my brother and concentrate on working hard for myself.
The first person I’d like to ask to help me is my dad, but I know that in doing so I would have to explain the situation of borrowing money, and then telling him about my brother who owes him money as well..
I don’t want to be responsible for breaking a family apart, I’d rather deal with my own problems and move away.
If there is anything you could possibly spare it would be appreciated, I know there are more people in worser situations than myself and I understand if you’d rather help them.
But if you do decide to help me, please feel free to contact me for any details and you have my word that this investment will not fall flat and I will pay you back one way or another, you’ll be investing in a bright young man who wants to change his life around for the better.
Thank you for reading.
Email me if you can offer any advice, I’d feel better about that than asking for money.
A whole hearted thank you is all I can offer.
