This has been a bad year for year for me. I got fired in April (one month after getting a raise), and I’ve had depression so bad, that I can barely function. Our bills are getting behind.
Last night on Twitter, I asked if anyone could loan us $500. I didn’t really expect to any kind of answer from anyone. Today when I woke up, I got a message from a fellow Dolphins fan that he would loan me $200.
I was surprised, because I had the impression things were tight for his family too. But he said he could swing it. He actually sent half of what I asked for on Twitter. I was amazed at his generosity.
The loan is a major thing, but his words meant more to me than the money. I have been suicidal recently. It just seemed like there was no point in me even existing. He made me realize that maybe there is a reason I am here, and that me being on Twitter could be a good thing. And now I have to make sure I pay him back, so I have to stick around.
I try to be a good person, and help when I can. I can’t give much in the way of money or things, but I try to be there for people. I am blessed that I have been on the receiving end. Take care of each other, you never know when you might be entertaining angels.
