I never thought I’d find myself begging for money from strangers, but here I am. I recently called off an engagement/7 year relationship. He was the complete love of my life. That thing you read about in books and see in movies. But he fell into substance abuse. After putting up with a couple of years of questionable decisions, excuses and being mistreated, it took him being revived in an ambulance from a drug-overdose for me to finally accept how toxic our relationship had become.
Unable to forgive the betrayal of drug abuse I broke up with him 10 weeks before our wedding. I have spent the time investing in myself and my future. I was accepted into a Yoga Teacher Training course starting in January. Finally, doing something for myself after years of making choices based on his needs.
However, I was slapped with a very expensive rent I can’t afford. He persuaded me into a two bedroom, too expensive apartment so he could have a room for “work.” I’ve been looking for a roommate for two months, but for one reason or another they keep falling through. I’m burning through my savings and my family doesn’t have money to help. After October’s rent I will no longer be able to afford the yoga course. I lost so much because of him. So many years, so much money on the wedding, and now I’m about to lose the first thing I was doing just for me.
I just really need a generous, helping hand to help me finally let go of this ugly chapter of my life, to invest in my future. I have very little debt other than $6000 in student loans and I have always been responsible with the little money I have had. But all of that diligence and discipline is on the line because I stayed in that relationship for so long.
Please help. I plan to further my training in yoga and bring mindfulness, self-care, love and self-respect to others. Practices that if I had used early would have kept me out of this situation. Your donation or investment will go on to better the lives of others. Namaste.
