I’m sorry I’ve been so quiet this past week. I was trapped on quite the roller coaster, and the chaos it left in its wake has rendered me emotionally and physically exhausted. I’m trying to emerge from my shell once again and get back on track with all the little things that make up my life.
The short version of the story: what I thought was a great job opportunity turned out to be nothing more than a scam. It affected my bank account and therefore my finances. I had to file a police report and argue with people on the phone who are supposed to provide great customer service, but instead treated me like I’m stupid.
I always, always try to be smart about jumping into something new. I sought advice about my new “job opportunity”. I told people what was going on. No one saw any red flags.
Fortunately, my bank was able to reverse much of the damage. At least for my finances. However, emotionally I still feel damaged.
I try to assume the best about people. I’m sad that a quality I actually kind of like about myself made it easy for this person to take advantage of me. It hurts my heart that this person knew I was a single mom with three kids to feed and still felt no remorse about following through with their scam.
How is it possible for someone to stoop so low and feel nothing? I can’t wrap my mind around it.
Today, though, I’m thankful for the good things. The bank took care of me. The police department took care of me. My friends encouraged me and assured me I’m not stupid.
So today I’m jumping back into life again, starting here on my website. I’ve missed talking to all of you and sharing our thoughts. I couldn’t ask for a better group of followers here on WordPress!
I hope your week has been 100 times better than mine, and I look forward to catching up with you in the weeks to come!
