Almost 3 months ago I and my 3 children left a toxic environment with their father (my ex). He had hurt me here and there over the years but this last time was different. This last time I knew if I didn’t act he would kill me! He told me he would and he hurt me enough to believe him. I currently am looking for work but have been unsuccessful thus far and one major obstacles is not having a vehicle. I recently graduated college and had such high hopes and now I’m so lost and overwhelmed yet I feel so much pride and so much happiness for removing us from that situation. I just feel like I desperately need a boost, a hand, anything to help me get caught up on these bills and if fortunate enough get a vehicle that holds 3 car seats. I have big dreams and I know I will reach them eventually. I’m just sick of the constant pressure of money issues. I’m sick of needing help! If I’m in a good spot I know I can thrive! I want to make the the a better place but I have to be able to take care of me first. My mental health has improved in many ways but has gotten worse in others. Help me quiet my burdens so I can spread my wings! I’m not trying just to survive anymore. I’ve done that for years just staying alive now I want to shine and touch hearts! I am grateful to still be here and so grateful I have 3 happy, healthy beautiful children! They deserve a mom who isn’t so worried all the time and to watch us overcome everything we did and end up on top! Thank you so muchcfor reading! And if you ever find yourself in this type of situation in a relationship or in any situation you don’t want to be in, get out! Nothing is worth your safety, your happiness, your life! Stop giving people chances who don’t deserve them, take care of yourself and keep pushing!
