Hi everyone. I am unsure on how to go about this or where to begin. So I will start from the beginning.
I am a bright, bubbly, loving 20 year old female who has been through a lot in my life. I know I know, what the hell can a 20 year old possibly go through that’s so tough? My father passed away when I was only 16 of an unexpected heart attack. We were already in a hard financial situation back then, but that does not compare to the misfortune myself and my family are currently going through.
My mother being widowed, losing her business 3 months after my fathers death due to a building fire, left us no other choice that to start from the bottom. This was all in 2016-2017.
My current situation-
I have just escaped a relationship with a narcissist. We were together for 6 months (although knowing him for 2 years) He left myself and my family in an abhorrent situation where he makes the devil himself look like an angel. He has left us in over $25,000 debt refusing to pay astronomical rent, bills and fixing my car. Leaving my name on the lease and refused to pay rent that he said he would.
also he had taken and controlled all my finances, taking the only saving I had including my mother’s aswell. Let’s just say he had his ways.
I have $200 to my name and no savings or anyone to help me out in this of need.
Early February he crashed my car, promising me to have it fixed, which till this day it has sat in my driveway rotting away till I can gather the funds to get it on the road again. I was then unable to work due to not having a car, I lost my job and then Covid hit.
I worked as a Forensic Cleaner. I helped people in need being compassionate to family’s, helping them clean up after a loved ones death, or cleaned hoarder houses for people who are mentally ill, the job goes on. Being 20 years old, I started working in this industry at only 19 being the youngest worker the company has ever had as I had the need to help others. That is what I enjoy doing. I have become accustomed to being exposed to death and those types of situations. I feel as if I’m able to handle helping others through difficult times, and have the stomach to clean up after suicides, murders, unattended deaths and so fourth I would do this type of work as someone has to be the one to do so.
I need money to get my car up and running so I can return to work, along with having to pay over $25,000 worth of debt my ex partner has left me and my family in. We are at a risk of having our electricity switched off, and being evicted. Which will result in us being homeless once again as I experienced that at 10 years old. We have no family or anyone to go to.
after crying on my best friends shoulder during our break up, would you believe I had soon found out my best friend has fleed with my ex partner, sabotaging my relationship for The sake of her selfishness. Losing both of them at the same time. I have cut my losses with both relationships, as I know I had been nothing but an amazing partner and best friend to the both of them. To anyone around me I have only the best of intentions and will feed you nothing but my love, open heart and true self. The plot thickens and this is only a fraction of my situation without writing a novel. Which I am thinking of writing a book, “That’s Life!” as this will definitely be a best selling book. Funds can also contribute towards that goal once everything else is handled.
It is unfortunate the situation I have been put through, and at some times I feel as if it was easier to handle the loss of my father than the situation I am currently in. I think that says enough about how difficult this has been. I am a strong girl, and always want and help others, but I need to accept that it is also my time to be helped. As a community and from one human being to another, that is what we are here for.
I have a tattoo on my arm that I wrote which reads “Nobody asked for life to deal us with the hands we are dealt. Fate is the cards you were given when you were born; Destiny is how you play them.
My situation will not define me, however it has built me to become a stronger woman.
