BLESSINGS MY LOVE!
MY NAME IS TESSA RIDLEY
In 2012 I "randomly" met my best friend & Love of My Life on a popular internet dating site.
We met less than a day after speaking & he soon disclosed to me that he was on the run & had been accused & charged with heinous crimes by a very sick person who was determined to ruin his life because he did not want to be in a relationship with her anymore.
It was impossible for me to turn away from this person who was afraid for his life and needed help so badly. He was working when we met and was living on a friends couch. Depressed. Terrified. And yet he was (and still is) the most VIBRANT, INTELLIGENT, KIND, GENTLE, EMOTIONALLY SENSITIVE HUMAN I HAD EVER MET.
The more we connected and shared about our lives with each other over the days to come, the more we realized we had known each other in some way, some form, may be in another life... the force within me that felt compelled to help him was other wordly.
We banded together to face the charges he was accused of, turned him in, accepted a plea deal due to our very limited resources and came home with the intent to get heal through the darkness together.
He was ordered to complete multiple requirements for his charges that made it impossible for him to maintain employment at the same time.
I supported us financially during that time.
While he completed his orders, I was personally guided by the Spirit within me to share everything I had discovered during the period of 2012-2015 that helped me survive emotionally, mentally + physically as we endured seemingly endless boughts of fear, trauma, grief & forced isolation & poverty.
I created a website with a dear friend who had just finished graphic design school, a youtube channel & I expanded my Evolution through Trauma vision on Instagram & Facebook to share my knowledge & gifts around SELF HEALING with others.
I poured my heart and soul into every post and insight every day as a ritual to not lose my mind.
I started my Youtube Channel in 2016 :
And Little did I know the plan that the Universe had in store for me & my family.
Shortly after completing his requirements for the original case, on the eve of my 33rd birthday, my partner was arrested from our home on another series of charges from the same "human" who had accused him of other charges 4 years prior.
There was absolutely zero investigation ever done in the second set of charges and my partner was forcibly removed from our home with no evidence of any of the charges he was being accused of.
He was in custody & imprisoned for 6 days before I was able to see him again.
Over the course of 2 years we had to spend over $30,000 on court costs, cross country air fare, hotel fees, animal sitters, time off work for both stress & court dates that we had to attend.
This does not even touch the amount of money that the original case cost.
Finally, after years of constant waiting and pouring out energy & funds my partner was ACQUITTED / NOT GUILTY of ALL CHARGES.
And although we are grateful & relieved, absolutely nothing will happen to the "person" who lied about him and defamed him publicly online.
He has had been deeply challenged by this 7 year journey & has had to also change his name in an attempt to reintegrate back into society.
It has been a few months since receiving the news of his acquittal and
since then we have had to leave everything we worked for as a couple behind to heal & start over in a new city as our life in Vancouver was unsustainable.
We have worked so hard to maintain our strength, courage & sanity this 2012-2019 gateway.
And coming out on the other side...
we are attempting to rebirth our lives.
I am personally on the verge of bankruptcy and I feel that if I reach out & am honest & vulnerable with my whole story, that there may be a light for us both.
We have faced so many challenges and heart wrenching pain along the way and need your help!
WE HAVE SO MUCH TO OFFER IN EXCHANGE.
I originally created a GO FUND ME PAGE in 2015 to help us after the first case and that morphed into a clarion call for help that never quite took off.
I feel the intentions around my first page stagnated as I had so much grief attached to it.
I felt guilt & such a block around accepting help after receiving multiple messages from discouraging people online telling me that I needed to help myself, that I should stop asking for help, that I was obviously with the wrong person +++
I felt so hurt by these words that I abandoned the page.
And yet people still sent help through.
We raised $7848 from 2015-June 2019
All monies that were raised from that page went to our case.
We are blessed by everyone who ever reached out.
At this time we are over $59,000 in debt due to back to back cases + borrowed monies to survive + lost wages due to severe mental & emotion turmoil, AND YET we refuse to give up. I am not seeking the full amount to be donated but rather enough so we can get gov't collections off our back.
I TRULY acknowledge my privileges to have even made it to this point & to have even HAD ANYONE to ask for help from during such a horrible time.
I stand here, heart and mind and soul wide open, asking that you watch the video attached to this campaign, and if there is anyone you can share our story with that you feel can help us, please share far & wide.
There is a MUCH BIGGER STORY emerging from this dark night of the soul.
There is a POWER emerging through us both.
WHAT HAPPENED TO US, happens to people all day every day.
We need help to rebuild.
And to not have to succumb to truly losing everything to bankruptcy as the hands of a mentally & emotionally ill person's relentless lies.
CAN YOU HELP US?
We have so much to share in exchange for your loving energy.
