I sub circle I went to last month has its monthly gathering on Friday.
One of the girls who goes asked me if I was going.
I said I couldn’t go because my budget is tight.
So as a fun thing she invited me to attend and share her dinner and we’d just have Ice water because it was free.
I know she meant well.
But it hit a nerve.
I am broke.
It’s nothing new. but this time I really stuffed up my budget.
I saw her message and I just freaked out a little.
As I write this I have $10 in my purse and my accounts overdrawn.
It’s 7 days before I get anymore money.
So you can see how her offer hit a nerve.
I ended up in tears, I am still fighting them.
I have a roof over my head, clothes on my back and my bills are paid.
I maybe behind before I start next pay, and I maybe short of food. But I just may have to swallow my pride and ask for help from a charity group.
I know that goes against the title of this post.
But I’m no ones charity case.
I don’t need you to offer me money.
I don’t need you to offer me food.
I need someone who will listen and be supportive.
You can’t fix this.
I have to fix this.
I am no ones Charity Case.
I am my own charity case.
