I’ve posted this on Gofundme a while ago and I have received some help, but I feel like posting it here may help me a bit more, so this is my story that I posted there. My name is Kasen. I’m 21 and I’m a gay trans black male who moved into Washington State the last 6-7 months ago. To keep my head above water and make sure I could cover my portion of bills, I had to sell some personal belongings and take out several personal loans.
There has been several that I’ve already paid back but these last few months have been harder considering that my hours have been cut quite a bit. It’s enough to cover expenses for living and other household things, but not enough to cover repaying debt (not to mention paying off the current credit card I already have that I’ve used in emergencies too.)
I don’t like to ask for help, because sometimes my pride gets in my way and the last people I could ask for help from is my family considering that they struggle financially on their own (and have had to ask me for help at times too) and I’d just get chewed out for this, though it was literally the only way I could keep myself afloat without worrying anyone. I am currently looking for a full-time job at the moment but I am working two part time jobs. I’m also still going through some of my belongings and seeing if there’s anything else I may be able to pawn or sell to help me through this.
I’m not asking for donations to entirely help me pay off all of the debt that I owe. I have to own up to that and pay it off myself, but if I could get help curbing it just a little bit, that would be more than enough. I have looked into debt consolidation and unfortunately I’m not at the thresh hold where that would apply to me.
