I am here humbly typing this message out today in hopes that there is someone out there who can help me in the deepest and most helpful way. Discovering financial freedom and balance.
I grew up with lower middle class parents who raised 4 children (I am the youngest of them). While they did give us a roof over our head and the best care they could what they did not educate us on was the importance of having finances in order, credit score importance, nor did we have any savings to have a head start in life. They were both factory workers living paycheck to paycheck doing their best. I was the first of their kids to get accepted and attend college which I am very proud of. However, this was done without anyone else’s financial support. Now that I am out on my own in the adult world I find myself drowning in debt. Student loans, credit cards to stay afloat, payday loans at times just to be able to eat for the week. I am in complete despair bringing me to this very page I am using to connect with others on that may have the means to literally change my life. I am not someone who is irresponsible or who would not be able to manage money outside of debt. I am someone in debt trying to make a better life for myself and my future family when I have one to be able to provide more than what my parents were able to. To do better for my family, myself, and give back to the world. But with the amount of student debt I have I am never able to even get at an even level to breathe nonetheless save for my future. I am grippingly trapped by this debt.
It was even harder when COVID shut down to keep up with this debt. Last year I worked 5 jobs working nonstop to try to get ahead and all that did was get me burnt out. I was and am fried from trying to get above this debt at this point. I am doing everything I can with every resource available to get this sorted. Including reaching out here to you today.
Currently my total debt is near $50,000 and this is after I have spent some years paying down what I have been able to up to this point. I am here begging whoever has the open eyes and heart to help to PLEASE HELP. You have no idea how much this would change my life to be able to get passed this debt and start fresh. To have a savings and an opportunity for a future of financial stability and even freedom.
I would be forever grateful to you if you helped me have the opportunity to really have a balanced life and be proud of my education and achievements beyond the debt.
