Hi! I’m Gabby, and I’m desperate to pay off my $4000 debt and pay rent at the same time. My father has always been amazing enough to financially support me for most of my life, and I have become financially independent recently. My dad knows about the debt and is wanting to pay it off, so I can focus on rent and saving money for my future. Unfortunately, my father is struggling a bit himself with money, and at this rate he won’t be able to retire when he wants if he doesn’t start saving himself. I would love more than anything to get rid of this debt without his help, so he can focus on his own savings and not stress about me.
My father has heart problems and the last thing I want is him stressing about me or his own money issues. My mother doesn’t have a job, so even though they’re divorced now, my dad still gives her a good amount of money every month, and I don’t want to be a part of taking his money anymore.
Becoming more independent has included creating my own small business. Though fairly successful for what I’ve put in so far, it has yet to break even, hence the debt. If I can pay it off, I can focus on proper finances, where my earnings go directly back into the business. I can pay my bills, rent, and add to my savings without worrying about any other financial responsibilities.
My dad, though working through multiple jobs and volunteering, isn’t getting paid for he always wanted to do: Broadcasting. Hosting a radio show. My ultimate gift to him would be to create the perfect opportunity to have a radio show that can thrive through popularity and finances. Whether that happens, I know he would be grateful and absolutely love just the experience of sitting in a studio and speaking to the world.
This debt was built up over the last year, and I haven’t added to it in months. All this to say that I have no plans on creating a new debt, and have a financial future plan for myself. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and I hope to hear from you. I appreciate anything you can give. It always astounds me how naturally kind people can really be. Have a groovy day!
