My name is Marcin and I'm 23 years old guy from Poland. I would like to ask you for unusual support. One of my life goals and dreams at the moment is the repair of a smile. Why? You will find the answer below.
About me and causes
I am quite a closed person. For a long time I have had problems with any self-acceptance. It's probably a matter of my weak character. On the other hand, this is partly due to relationships with other people who can be extremely cruel for no reason. It's better now, but because of the past, I've developed psychological problems in myself. There is a time in which I tell myself - Well, you are completely normal, but there are also times when I deny this and find worse and worse things in myself. This is really terrible.
Like I said before the present situation has changed somewhat. Thanks to the internal struggle, I managed to improve this state for the better. So there are still some elements that I can't eliminate. I am afraid of looking at people in the face. I can't keep eye contact for long. Not only when it comes to stranger, but also a closer one. Usually I drop my head or look sideways. When I make verbal contact, there is also the question of speaking in an unnaturally quiet tone. One of the reasons for this is my teeth. I hate to smile. That's why my facial expression becomes terribly forced. I also hate photos, I avoid them whenever I can. It also involves some kind of fear. I prefer not to lean. It's natural for me. It would seem that teeth don't have a huge impact on life. And yet the situation is very different.
When I was a child I had a refundable removable braces. However, after some time, as a result of an accidental situation - he broke and he was useless anymore.
I am collecting this money because I can't afford such treatment. I don't even have the opportunity to collect this amount. Soon I will start a fully adult life, because next year I will finish my master's studies.
I would like to move to my own flat to relieve my parents of some expenses. They have long dreamed of renovating an apartment.
So far I have combined studies with casual work to have on my own expenses, such as new clothes needed, monthly tickets for public transport, I also helped pay parents for bills etc.
Only my dad works, and in addition isn't a job that brings a lot of money. My mother, however, suffers of multiple sclerosis and deals with home affairs.
In this life course it was impossible to put down enough money ... It is a very large amount for which you can buy a decent car.
The years pass. The internal crisis is not disappearing at all. I understood that the later I start to do something towards change, the worse it will be for me to be more difficult in my later life. Of course, the braces are just one step in self-acceptance and relationships with others. However, it seems to have a significant impact in the context of the future. The smile is the basis for every human being.
For some people, such a fundraising may be meaningless. There are people who are struggling with more serious problems. Know, however, that sometimes mental pain can be more intense than physical pain. Especially one that lasts for many years.
If you read this, I am asking you for any support, even sharing this fundraising further. It will be a sign for me that there are people in this world for whom there is such a formulation as selfless help. I will be grateful for even the smallest possible amount of money. That would be unimaginable help!
I don't care about collecting money quickly. I will be happy if it ever happens.
If it were possible, I would thank each of you separately and in the future I would smile especially for each of you :)
The collected amount would be allocated to all costs related to orthodontic treatment. If I could collect more than I need, I would transfer the rest of the money to other fundraising.
And this is my smile now:
I leave you with this!
Have a nice day. May God bless you :)
