Over the past few years, there have been a lot of ups and downs. From engaged, employed, and working toward furthering my education… to 4 days from having nowhere to go, with zero in my bank account, no car, and a child to support.
I will spare you the depressing details, though I will be happy to share one-on-one if you’re interested.
I moved to a new state one year ago this month. I had a fiance, a car, and a new job. I was working toward something. Over the course of this year, I lost the fiance, and the car. It put me in a tough position to go from dual to single income on such short notice, but I did what I could to make it work. I was working 16 hour days, still barely getting by, but hopeful. Then a few more things sort of… unraveled.
As of today I have no job (company sold), no car, and 4 days to be out of my current residence (lease ended, not lack of payment), with no money to acquire housing, or transportation, and an 8 year old. Housing is first priority… however, a car is necessary to accept any job – I have had to turn down 5 so far due to lack of transportation.
And before you ask;
- Yes I have thought about working from home – I even enrolled in online schooling. I still would need a place to live, with internet access, in order to make these things work.
- I have already applied for child support, it is a long process.
- Government assistance is not as readily available as you would think.
- No, I don’t have friends and family that can help – if I did I definitely would not be on the internet asking for help!
I know God has a plan. I know good things are coming. I am intelligent, hard-working, and hopeful… but right now I just need help. I have tried everything, and now I am looking to you, whoever you are, to give me a boost so I can stand on my own two feet again. Thanks for reading <3
