Hello, my name is Robin Dhaly and I’m a 20 year old. My parents are abusive, physically and psychologically. They often beat me and say degrading and very hurtful things. One time, my mother beat me with a broom because I spilled some dish soap she asked me to get her. Another time, she poured boiling water on me because I wasn’t paying attention to my priest.
I’ve dealt with this for two decades…they often beat me every day and sometimes just because they were angry or because they wanted to “discipline me”. My dad even told me, “What’s the point of raising you if you’re not gonna give me money?” But one day, I met an amazing women. Her name is Holly and she lights up my world. She’s smart, sarcastic and funny. I truly love her more than anything.
We’ve in a relationship now and she makes me happier than anything else in the world. I want to spend my life with her. So I left my abusive family to try to live with my amazing girlfriend on the other side of the country. I made it there and I thought my dreams had finally come true. I had an amazing and understanding landlord/roommate who did the best he could to help.
Unfortunately, it didn’t work out and I quickly ran out of money. My family found me and I was forced to go back due to financial hardship. I told them I want to live with my girlfriend but they refused to provide assistance financially and mocked me. I have been trying my hardest to save up money so I can move back but no jobs want me as I don’t yet have a degree…I had to quit college to be able to run away. I just wanna be away from my hostile and abusive family and be with my girlfriend.
I have been dreaming of this for so long, to be able to be free and happy. To not be worried everyday if I will be hurt, to be able to actually see and feel my girlfriend in person, to truly be happy and safe. To know what it feels like to wake up next to a person you love and cherish and know you won’t be beat that day.
My savings goal is $10,000 and if you can provide anything at all, I’d be eternally grateful. Please help me be free and happy and safe. Thank you.
