I have myself to blame but im a young man, 20 years old.
There was someone i knew who had his car breakdown, and i had been saving money up to that point for the last 8 months.
So when he asked for help I offered it in a heartbeat.
I gave him $2800 straight out of pocket for a broken transmission… and so the story goes on, it seems to have went from this to him missing out on rent and getting kicked out of his house, i mean i get it we all have our rough moments sometimes longer than others, so i saw no reason to back off from someone i trusted and leave him out to dry.
I lent him more money.
He told he would pay me back as soon as his tax deposit came in, he said it was going to be fast but he was getting the bank off of his back
apparently he had missed a debt and it only accumulated…
so i lent him 40 dollars, 250 dollars,
i really thought it would Fix this. As if i was going to be asked to loan him again and again. But that’s exactly what happened.
He really convinced me that it was only going well until the bank came around and said “you’ve missed this too”
and i fell for it :(. I didn’t really understand, money changes people, if you LEND to others you better realize where that money’s going.
needless to say I had trusted him… and that trust was left behind nowhere to be found.
i disappointingly ate it up, and continued to offer much more support than i can handle.
I sent over 6 thousand dollars, and i have 1k in credit debt.
there’s something biting at me, that i feel like i have been wronged. Even though i am to blame is it right to be burdened by the actions of another individual? It doesn’t matter
I’ll be going to the recruiters tomorrow. I’m enlisting to the coast guard, i’ll be taking charge to protect others, and i’d be proud to do so.
I ‘d share more but if you read this far, thank you for giving the time. I really mean that
I’m only asking money for this to relieve these frustrations, and get my life back on track, with (the whole im in 1k debt and cant pay rent…)
And if you’re going to help me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
