Welcome to my story. I feel a little embarrassed asking for help when there are so many others out there in greater need. That being said, I am at a loss for how to get myself in a better financial position without help. I’m not great at asking for help, but recognize that there is no shame in it.
A few years back I moved across the country. I was not prepared for how the cost of living does not match up with wages here. Between that and the cost of flights back home to see my family, I am now in a position where I am behind on my bills. I don’t live extravagantly and try to be as frugal as possible.
I would like to get caught up on my bills and be in a more stable financial position. I have no family in the area and it would be nice to have more time to get out and volunteer more in the community to meet people and be able to help people. My goal is to get myself in a better position so I can pay it forward and help others. I have a passion for helping others. It would be such a blessing for me to have more time to help others.
I also have a goal to start my own business. Creating t-shirts, decorations, and home decor is a hobby of mine, and I would like to bottle that passion into a business that I enjoy and help me get ahead financially. Materials are expensive, and getting caught up with my bills would allow me to be able to buy materials to get my business off the ground.
Right now it would take about $700 to start getting me in a position to get caught up on my bills. This would help me at least be able to stay on top of what I need to get current and get my credit in a better place. I would be happy for any little bit though and so grateful. Internet, Car Insurance, and 3 Credit Cards are passed due and need to be paid immediately. I want to be able to never be in the position again. Being able to pay off my credit cards and establish savings would be such a great blessing to be able to work toward. Thank you for any help!
