My Virtual Friend Lent Me 0.29 BCH Or $100
"I don't know what's special with me but I am blessed with people I've met."
This is what I feel everytime my friends in real world give their hand when I'm in need. I know I'm not that kind yet they still didn't forget about me. They don't doubt and helped me wholeheartedly.
Just like the friend I shared in my previous article, the one who will help me to work abroad. Actually she can just have her own life if she wants while enjoying the blessings come to her but she remembers me and want me also to experience it. Ugh! What a selfless love!
And you know what? Even the people I just only met on the internet who heard always my stories and become my friends, also extent their hands on my down days. It's rare and very well-appreciated.
I was so stressed last week thinking where I can get money to pay my house rent. It's my fault because I forgot about it and didn't think the days that I should be grinding. I came to the point that I will take the risk to borrow in an online loan app even I already heard the advices from other readers and writers that "Don't do it cause they will shame you when you missed to pay even in just a day" that I should go and just borrow to my friends.
I tried to contact my friend and asked if she have extra money and I get shocked with her answer.
Her: Sorry zy. I wanted to help you but I already use my money for my prenatal-check up.
Me: Whaaaaaaaaat?! You're pregnant?!
Her: Yeah. It's already 24 weeks and you're going to be Godmother, soon. I miss you girl! We're so outdated to each other. Visit me here sometimes.
Me: It seems like yesterday that were jogging together to lose weight now you have that fat that will be my godchild. Oh gaaaaad! Haha.
After our chat I think again of my other friends who I can lend money but I feel they also struggling when I read their rants on Facebook so I didn't try to message them. I messaged mom but she wasn't online. After an hour she replied that she can't send me money because she already used her day off for the month of April and I should try to borrow to boyfriend or to my friends and she'll pay it next month.
My boyfriend is also zero that time because his grandfather is in the hospital. My head hurts and I heard voices again. I closed my eyes and I suddenly thought of my virtual close friends here. I already accepted that I might get rejected because they also have needs that's why they grind so hard but I still tried it.
I messaged first the virtual friend that I won't feel shy lol.
Friend 1: She wanted to lend me but one of her virtual friend already borrowed her money. So not available to her. Eeengk!
I messaged another friend who also I don't feel shy but...
Friend 2: She will use it on weekends. She have $40 and she's willing to lend me the half. I was touched because I know she needs it too yet she still want it to share with me.
Friend 1 was worried about me. She keeps asking if I already found a friend where I can borrow.
I needed P5k or $95.65 that time and if I take the $20 of Friend 2, I still have to borrow $75 from others. That would be magulo na.
I tried to virtual friend 3 who often I talk but...
Friend 3: Her money was already borrowed by her best friend. She said she can lend me next week when her friend paid her. I understand because she is already a mom and at the same time a student. Also I don't want to add worries to her. And of course I appreciated it.
Friend 1 asked again if I'm already okay. Hehe.

I'm losing my hope that day but another virtual friend commented to my post and she ask if I'm already okay, and if I already found whom to borrow. I messaged her privately and told her I still haven't. Even I'm shy I tried to ask if she have extra money. Without hesitation she ask "How much?" I told her $95 but she said...
"I will make it exact $100."
My chest feel relieved. I cried out of joy. She always get worried when I'm having a hard time. I remember when I was out posting and writing in both noise and read she messaged me directly to check how I am. She trusted me and I will value it so much. She knows I won't scam her because my faces are super expose here and also she knows my real name.
I'm so blessed to have a thoughtful friends physically and virtually. I maybe not fortunate with my relatives but I am so loved by people who listen to my feelings.
Friend 1, 2, 3 asked if I'm already okay and I told them that I am. Hehe. I didn't tell them who lend me because she doesn't want it to be announced. To be fair I don't want to mention their all names. Hehe. Thank you so much guys!
I had to grind hard so I will pay her back immediately though mom will pay it next month because she told me to borrow to someone but I just want to be prepared. We can't tell she might suddenly need it.
When I was going to give up, God touches their heart for me.
Blessed this people!
How about you? Would you lend $100 your friend that you just met online?
