My name is Natasha, I am 43 years old and I live in Ljubljana, the capital city of Slovenia.
I am a conscientious worker, loyal to the same employer for almost 18 years.
I am kind, I give people a lot of opportunities and I try to find a good side in each one.
My life has turned in a way I don’t have children of my own, but I cultivate a great love for animals.
Notwithstanding the above, I have no luck in a partnership.
I had a long-term relationship with a man from my academic years, a doctor who last cheated on me with a nurse. As a result, I had to leave the house we created together.
After that I met a man who merged with my soul at the beginning of the relationship, like he set me free from a previous failed relationship. Everything looked just perfect, we created a new home.
Unfortunately, in a relatively short time, another truth began to emerge – the new partner was becoming more and more aggressive and was committing psychological, partly physical as well as economic violence against me and my pet.
He turned out to be actually a psychiatric patient, but he refuses any kind of treatment.
The thing escalated to the point that I had to run away from the house because of his incidents.
I sought help from the Centre for Social Work and the police, but encountered a very lukewarm response everywhere.
In Slovenia, the system is very poorly regulated in this regard and responsibilities are only shifted from one institution to another. The Centre for Social Work is primarily a bureaucratic institution, and the police only urge when blood is flowing.
On the other hand, the ex-partner does not want to cooperate in solving the problem that has arisen.
He refuses to sell the common property (each of us is half owner), he can’t pay me off. He simply withdraws and plays his game further on.
Thus, I am left only with the intervention of the court, where it gets stuck again, as court proceedings in Slovenia take 3-8 years, and at the same time they are so expensive that in the case of this option I would practically lose my 20-years savings.
As a result, it occurred to me, as the last lifeline, the possibility to buy out my ex-partner (his half of the property) and thus trying to get out of this unenviable situation.
However, there is a financial problem, because despite my regular income, I do not have the funds to do so. The biggest reason is because I am already paying the loan for the half of my property, which takes away a significant part of my salary.
To be able to buy out the property of my ex-partner, I would need € 150,000.
That is how I remembered you, successful, kind and sensible people. I still believe in human kindness and the ability to give, to help people who have found themselves in need.
I know I am just the one of many asking for the help, but if my story touched you a little, I would be happy for any transfer to my account to help me to reach the final required amount.
Thank you for your response and reading this message.
