No good deed goes unpunished

As many know I️ am not one to ask for help. I️ was raised to be the giver. The supporter. The helper. I️ was raised to work hard for the things I️ want and need. To be self sufficient and strong. I️ also don’t like to air a lot of my personal life over social media. Right now though, I️ am in need. I️ have requested help by other means which fell through. Here goes:I name this person because we are the 3rd household he has done this too. I am aware in most cases this is in bad taste however I believe those who know him have the right to know what he’s done so they can protect themselves as well. My ex-roomate Nate, who was temporarily in charge of paying our rent, instead stole our money. He chose to gamble, travel and make other bad choices with it. For 3 months we had no idea. The landlord is a kind man who gives chances to those in need so he didn’t tell us till month 3 which was January. We now owe our landlord $6,667. November, December, January, and his portion of February. We are facing possible eviction if I️ cannot pay by the end of March. I am alone on the lease. If my credit was worth a damn I️ would never ask this if my friends or family and take out a loan. I️ don’t need or want a penny more. I’ve already worked for and earned this money. I️ will be pursuing legal action. You are helping me with time. Every penny I️ get back I️ plan to donate to charity. Heather and I️ need help. Nate won’t pay. If I’ve ever learned one thing from all the help I’ve given others, it’s to ask when one needs it. I am not perfect by any means. This is hard. This hurts. But some times we must face the truth. I️ took a person into my home who needed help and instead ended up the worse for it. I️ will never change who I️ am or stop helping people. Of those who know me, you know it’s not in my nature to turn someone away. If every person I️ knew could spare just $1, I️ could make this work. Please always take care of each other. Just be wary you don’t get abused like we did along the way.I️ am in tears as I️ write this. I thank everyone in advance for being there for me . I️ sincerely will never forget the kindness I️ hope to receive with this petition I️ write in shame. As Ellen says, be kind to one another. :.-)
