Hi, I am 22 years old and live in Georgia. I am writing this as a cry for help because I am extremely overwhelmed. Recently I have encountered numerous hardships that have substantially impacted my life. As a result of an unsuccessful relationship, I have now been forced to take over additional expenses that I was not prepared for. I currently work 40+ hours a week and still cannot manage to stay afloat. I am now unable to pay my rent that is due in 2 days. My family has helped me in every way that they can & I have exhausted all resources to try and raise the money myself. I have sold all my items of value, donated blood, tried to find a part time job on the weekends, babysitting..you name it I’ve tried it.
I have been able to keep things together for 6 months, and this is the first time I have no choice but to ask for help. I am in such a vulnerable place. I take responsibility for the choices I’ve made that I have gotten me here, but no one deserves to be abandoned and left with 100% of the responsibility that should have been shared between two individuals. I feel ashamed that I have gotten myself into this situation.
I have now hit my rock bottom. On top of my financial struggles I suffer from depression and anxiety. The lack of assistance from my ex-boyfriend has caused my mental health to decline and I am now struggling to hold down my current job. Even through all of this I still manage to wake up every morning with positivity and faith that things will somehow work out. I don’t have any children, but I do have two dogs that I love immensely. The thought of having to sell my pets breaks my heart. If I am unable to pay my rent, I will be evicted & I have nowhere to go. I am hopeful that if I am able to get through this time in my life that I can pay it forward. I’ve experienced pain and struggles and I would love to be able to financially help someone like me one day. So I am here asking for help. Anything can make a difference & is appreciated.
My rent is $1080.00 and I owe $300 worth of credit card debt this month alone. I currently only have $400 to my name. I’m praying that someone sees this & is touched by my story and can relate. Please find it in your heart to assist me.
Thank you for your time.
