Why I am the way I am...
So, everyone has always asked why I am the way I am. I come from a pretty abnormal family background, overall. I always tell people I'm who I am because I've had the most amazing support group ever. Man, today proved it.
In going through school and trying to be on my own, I've been unable to pay any bills. I'm nearly $1,000 past due on my car loan. The company's been searching for me to repossess my car. Grandma offered to help, and named a sum she could help with. The company is going to press charges against me tomorrow. I could come up with half the sum, and Grandma volunteered half the sum. I've been stressed...if I paid that amount, I'd save my car...but I wouldn't be able to pay my Goodyear bill, phone bill, get any gas, any food, keep my internet, or pay my car insurance. I just started a job so I can no longer draw unemployment, but it will be three weeks before I see a paycheck. That's a really long time to survive on $0.00.
I did not tell my Grandma any of this. Just asked if she could please deposit the amount she'd volunteered into my checking account. I was so ashamed to ask that. I'd figure out food & gas & phone later, those are negligible, right?
And Grandma does what...?
She deposits the entire amount of the bill, and tells me to have a new beginning & good luck with my job.
I don't know how I didn't bawl my eyes out.
