Hi all, I am on here (I hate the word begging, but I feel like I’m at rock bottom so it might be all I can say) begging for anything.
In October of last year (2018) I was approached by my girlfriend of four months and she was crying her eyes out. It absolutely broke my heart when she told me that she had been kicked out and disowned by her family, and that her apartment also gave her an eviction notice. I was in tears, my heart was shattered.
I would have given her the world at this point in time, but I decided that I would pay for her lease completely so that she could still have her place and stay in college and actually have a life. I ended up giving her everything I had, which was close to $10,000. I even had to sell my ps4, my tv, and my longboard just to keep her happy and living safe.
A week after this happened, or from when I gave her the money, she texted me saying “we’re not going to work out”. And that was it. She blocked me on everything, and when I went to her place to actually talk or see if she was there, it was empty. She completely moved out within a week and took all of the money I gave her with her. She left me with absolutely nothing but a broken heart.
I’ve been taken advantage of before in my life, but never like this. I went from happy, comfortable, and in love to depressed, broke, and homeless. (I couldn’t afford rent anymore because my job only gave me like 10-15 hours a week. Between rent and school I need a little more than 10-15 hours a week. I tried getting a second job, but nobody will hire a bummy looking kid without a house or car.
I’ve been sleeping at my friend from class’ house, but I need to get back on my feet because I feel bad. I feel unwelcomed and like I don’t belong, like I’m a burden.
I don’t want to have to drop out and live on the streets, but if this doesn’t work out then I’m going to have no other choice. All I’m asking for is anything. Anything and everything helps me right now. There’s no going down from here.
Thank you for your time, I really appreciate you hearing my story. Hopefully it will all work out, I’m praying every day.
