Sacrifice for My Family
Tuesday, November 23, 2010
Life is about acceptance and once I accepted what I need to go for my family, I am OK now.
My family is going through a really rough time right now and I feel so guilty. We all have to file for bankruptcy and I feel like if I had never left my abusive husband 8 years ago and moved back home my family would be in a better place, at least financially. They spent their all their money dry to help me.
So yesterday after meeting with the attorney I decided the best thing for me to do is to sell my car (which is paid off) to help with the daily and monthly expenses for my family as well as attorney costs and to help make repairs on the house. I have not been able to get a job or go back to school because my depression has been so bad, so my doctor wants me to file for disability. I don't care about the money for myself, just taking care of my 80 year old great-aunt and my mom.
So even though right now I am putting my life on hold to help them, I feel it is the least I can do after all the sacrifices they have done for me. I am so thankful for my family. I would not be here without them. I just wish I could go back in time and change the situation so they would be in a better place right now. But I can’t, so I need to focus on what I CAN do!
