I need help to leave an abusive relationship for good! Over time I have become isolated, and what few friends and family I do have are in no position to help take me in or otherwise. The only person willing to "help" me is the partner who has not only physically abused me in the past but worse is the continual emotional raging abuse he tries to use to keep me mentally down. I truly think he likes it this way, so I am forced to stay with him and have me all to himself.
I know I am better than this!
When I am apart from him I feel confident, smart and capable, and that is because I am! I have had a professional career, and currently want to pursue getting more involved in my community and get more active in social change movements, including helping others dealing with domestic violence and abuse. One way I would like to do this is through my writing, which I have been told I am good at. In fact, I have a former career in journalism and media relations. In fact, I have fundraised and publicized the Delaware Coastal Cleanup for several years. That was much easier to do than asking you to now support my project - me. Another goal is to finish the last 25 credits toward a Bachelor's Degree in Behavioral Science. However, over time all these things have had to be put aside to continually tend to his emotional needs, at the expense of my own, and at the expense of what I feel the world could benefit from what I can give back! However, I cannot give when my own basic needs are not being met. I know I am better than this!
Please give so I may give back!
Will you kindly please help me get back on my feet again? I have no car - he took the key to the car I cosigned with my good credit and made payments on the last two years. I would like to raise enough for first months' rent and deposit, and slightly more to keep my cell phone on so I may keep in contact with prospective employers and opportunities, as well as earn money and stay connected through my writing online. A bonus would be an additional 1,000 to get another car I do own fixed so that I may drive it. This would go a long way toward gaining independence to do all the things I need and want to do. However, at this point I am just grateful for my most basic needs to be met. I can provide references as needed. Thanks in advance for your investment in me!
