Hi, this is my first post since my intro post when I joined 7 or so months ago.
I did something stupid and am paying for it now. My 20 year old daughter is having problems in her marriage and asked for my help. She needed money for an antibiotic prescription so I loaned her my bank card so that she could go get it. I couldn’t go at the time because I had other things going on. It was supposed to be only $10 or so. Well she wound up keeping my card for a couple of days because she was staying at a friends house and would not be back my way for a day or so. I told her not to use my card anymore than for that prescription because I was very tight on money and have a house payment coming up Thursday. She promised me she would do as I asked. Well yestereday I got online to check my account balance and found out I am $400 overdrawn because she used my card to go shopping at a bunch of different stores. Because of this I won’t be able to pay my house note tomorrow and will be late now. This puts my family in a huge financial bind. Well, we were already in a financial bind (and who isn’t these days), but now it’s much worse. I truely wanted to help her and I wanted so much to be able to trust her. She’s done this before with my gas card but not this severe.
Well, she has proven herself totally untrustworthy and what’s more, when I confronted her about it she didn’t seem to be very sorry for it. All she would say to me is she was planning on paying me back. Like that makes it all okay. It certainly doesn’t help me now.
Anyway, I am asking for prayers for the bind that this has put my family in and also prayers for my daugher so that she will stop being so self-centered, so selfish and immature. She needs to grow up and stop thinking that the world revolves around her and her problems. I also need prayers for strength to stop caving into her guilt trips she lays on me.
I hope this post isn’t too long, this is my first time doing this, I apologize if it is.
Thank you in advance for taking the time to read.
