(I’m sorry of its long)
Hey there, I hope whoever is reading this is having a good day, I am a scholarship student that wanted to be independent by working on digital marketing and I not only failed but lost most of my savings and at the time it happened I was so desperate that fell for a scam and lost even more, the problem is that I promised helping my mom to pay for house repairings using part of the money that I’ve been saving by myself and what was left over from the scholarship’s transportation aid (it’s basically an extra money that the government gives you each semester to pay lunch and transport to the university) but I no longer have enough to help her thanks to my mistake.
All what I wanted was to be able to follow my own path because even if my mom is one of the most caring and lovely people that are out there and that I wouldn’t change her for anything in this world, she became really overprotective thanks to all what has happened to her during these 4 years and she refuses to get any help , and man it has men really tough, she has lost a lot, she lost someone who can be called as her brother thanks to the virus and my grandpa almost died of a heart attack a pair of years ago, I heard her crying a lot and all what I could do was to hug her and tell her everything was gonna be ok, at the end my grandpa survived and has completely recovered but everything that happened marked my mother deeply to the point where I was forced by her to stay in a local university in a career chosen by her (at that time the scholarship process was delayed thanks to the virus and I didnt know for sure that I was going to get it), I saw all of my friends going to different parts of the country and even some of them went overseas All while I’m stuck here in a career path that I’m not good at at all in a home environment that was getting more and more suffocating as time passed.
And then came the “opportunity”, I saw a digital marketing online course in which I saw a way to not only be independent and have an escape from the situation at home, I remember saying to myself: “once I get this working I will rent an apartment and after stabilizing myself I’m going to help mom with the house bills” I even bought a laptop secretly so that I could work on it while at the university, but that “once I get this working” never came, I realized that in order to get it working I needed more money than what was left in my savings, I was desperate at the moment, I had lost more than half of my savings and a search for a part time job that I’m still doing by the time I write this hasn’t given any results, but it was not over yet, 1 month ago a storm damaged some parts of my houses roof, we got them repaired but my mom asked me if I could help her with the last repairs because the money from her work is not enough to cover them and since I haven’t said anything about my savings to her and knew that the problem would be even bigger if I told her what happened I said yes and starting looking for a job that I haven’t found even now, at this point I’m running out of both options and time and the only thing I can think off now is to look for help, I only need 800 dollars to get everything covered, so please, help me get out of this problem.
