Fliping the switch on pride.

If you are reading this, more than likely it is because you know me, and have for many, many years. You have seen me up, you have seen me down, you know me deep inside as well because of my poetry. You have also seen me pick myself up after countless disasters and start over as if nothing happened.

I have prided myself over the years in being a giving person, which has also hurt me often, sometimes you should just say no...I can't. Well I could never say that....hopefully, someday I will.

Well, this is hard to do but I really do not see any other way.
I am in REAL trouble and need your help. My business has failed and I am less than 2 weeks from being homeless. I have spent the last month looking for work but nobody wants to hire a 55 year old man who has been self employed since 1986. I can not blame them, neither would I!

I know, some of you may be saying to yourselves, tough....you deserve the humility. Maybe I do. I know I am the one whom put myself here through many mistakes in the past 4 months...but regardless I am here and need to find a way back.....QUICKLY!

Well, its out there now and by the end of the day my whole world will know my deepest secret, but not my bigest heartache....that will come next if I do not find resolution quickly.
And no.....it is not what some of you are thinking. I could never go down that road.

Anyhow, if you can help I will be forever grateful...truly!
I do have one more odd request, if you could do it anonymously I would appreciate that, especially if you are one of my oldest friends, since FB is really my only media. The reason for this is simple, I would rather look at all of my friends as someone who might have helped, rather than doing the human instinct and feel, they could have, why didn't they? I guess they don't care!

Anyhow, regardless of the outcome, thank you for taking the time to read this.
