My life is not terrible but I just wish it was better. I recently got divorced and gave up the custody of my son because I was not working and didn’t have any money saved up. I was completely dependent of my ex-husband and was a stay-at-home mom for 5 years. I tried really hard to get a job but most of them were scams or I got rejected as I had 8 yrs career break. As I didn’t have a job or money, I was scared and had no confident that I could take care of my son properly. I didn’t fight my ex husband for anything including money as he was in debt himself and he will be needing money to take care of our son and walked away with nothing. I started working in a retail store for $9 and then due to COVID I was furloughed. I received pandemic relief and using that money I completed professional certification online during that time and was able to get a job for $12. I don’t have a car or a place of my own. I am sharing space with someone I know but I cant be there for too long. I have to come to my ex husband’s place to spend time with our son. Even though I lose my self respect and get insulted most of the time, I don’t want to miss my chance to bond with our son and also he needs me.
All I am wishing for is a place of my own and a car so that I can be independent. Its not easy for me to ask for money as my life is not the worse right now but I am scared of the future. I keep planning about my future, and dream about it but even if I tried 200% harder I don’t think I can achieve my dream in the next five years. My son is growing faster and I am missing most of the moments with him. All I wish for is a roof over my head and spend most of my time with my son peacefully and happily.
I have heard that you will not get anything in this world without asking. I have waited for a miracle to happen to put me in a better place but I have not really asked anyone for anything but now here I am requesting you to help me. I don’t even know if this is going to work but I have to at least try.
Thank you for your time!
