I am a 29 years old single mother with a lovely and smart 7 year old son. We have been living with my parents. I work online and due to this have been able to support my son and help my family out. For the past years, I have been having issues with my parents and I have considered so many times to leave and set off on our own, just my son and I but I haven't been able to do so because 1 - I do not have enough money to be able to secure a place of our own and start over 2 - I have hesitations about leaving and venturing off on our own.
My parents and I have recently been clashing once again and I have set a deadline for myself to leave and have my own place and start over with my son before I turn 30. This morning though, a huge fight happened between my parents and I which sped up things and made me decide to just go ahead and do it. I was able to find a place that we could rent out which is near and is only walking distance from my son's school but the problem is, it is beyond my budget and to be honest, I do not have enough funds to be able to start over - pay for advanced and deposits for rent and to be able to buy basic appliances and necessities such as mattresses, burners, cookwares, fridge, etc.
I really really want to start over and make this work for me and my son. I need help to be able to do so and I do not have anyone to help me out. I am throwing this out in the universe hoping that someone will hear and help me to finally start over. I want to finally be able to be free from all the stress and negativity that have been surrounding me for years. I know that compared to a lot of people, I am still blessed because my son and I are healthy, we are able to still eat, I have a job even if it doesn't pay enough, he gets to go to school, etc but there is a desperation within me to just leave and set out and venture on our own. My number two reason was that I have had hesitations to leave and venture out, right now, I do not have those anymore. I hope that someone would be able to help me out with number 1 and help us with our starting over fund.
The funding would go into:
1 - rental for the first few months including deposits and advances
2 - city services fees such as electricity, water, gas, and internet (I work online and I really need the connection)
3 - basic appliances and necessities - mattress (we can do without a bed for now), stove or burner, cooking wares, a refrigerator, table and chairs
4 - pay off my son's tuition fee
5 - hopefully have enough left to start off a little business
I know that this is a long shot but yes, I am crossing my fingers and hoping and praying and wishing. Please do not hesitate to send me a message for any questions, clarifications, or encouragements (I really need that and would appreciate it)
Sincerely and with a hopeful heart,
