Hello, my name is Mario.
I am asking for some type of help for I am drowning in debt. I am doing everything I can to get out of it. I have 4 kids who are not with me at the moment. They are across seas in Japan living with their mother. I don’t have nor can I start a savings funds for my kids because it seems like every time I try to get ahead another bump comes out of nowhere stopping me in my path. Their mother does not work so I continue to send money across every month. I have about $25,000 in debt that I seriously need to get rid of so I can have a peace of mind and I can start saving for my kid’s future. I feel ashamed asking for help but I am at my last option. I understand I am in the military but its not cutting it for me. I love my kids with all my heart but if I can’t have the financial stability to support them then I will have failed as a father and I don’t want that to ever happen. Every day I wake up and I don’t see them is like having a nightmare with no one to comfort me. I am getting really tired of trying to consolidate everything when that’s just another bill added to my stress about saving money. I just want everything to go away all at once and not have to worry about living pay check to pay check like I am doing now. It hurts already when I cant see my kids how I want to see them and it also hurts to them “no kids daddy doesn’t have the money for it right now”. Growing up my father and mother didn’t have much but they did what they could to keep a roof over our head, clothes on our back, and food in our stomachs. I know that was hard on them, I saw it in their eyes everyday not knowing if they could continue to provide for us. I don’t want that same feeling for my kids. I just want to be debt free and start a new financial life but on a clean sheet. I know I am asking for much anything can help even if it’s a little. I really there is someone out there who can help me get out of this endeavor and help regain my sense of stability. Please help and God Bless you.
