A melancholy encounter from the past.

The windy atmosphere blew all over my body. It was 3:00 in the morning and I was alone in the middle of the street thinking where to go. I look like a homeless woman with no direction, and I admit, in the coming days, maybe I will be one.

I don't have any money in my wallet. All I have is my cellphone and a set of jewelry that I bought overseas when I was on vacation. I don't have a choice, I want to go home. That's why I called a taxi and, in exchange for his service, I gave a pair of my earrings to him.

My life has been miserable all these years. Who would have guessed that this people's favorite, a magna cum laude, an entrepreneur, would be so squandered and worthless?

I had a good life back then. I have a happy family, a small but profitable business, and a circle of good friends, but those things in my life turned to ashes when I got addicted to something.

CASINO: A three-syllable word that's making my life miserable.

It started with a small amount until I didn't notice that day by day I was getting addicted and losing a huge amount of money. I have experience of winning sometimes, but after that I will lose again.

Sometimes I don't have any control over myself and I want to die. I just want to be gone so that it will be finished. I no longer have the guts to face my family because of this mess that I have made, and I thought maybe if I died, all of this would be done.

But then this pandemic came and all of the casinos needed to close, and that's the turning point in my life. Because there's no casino, there's no reason for me to play and lose money. I was in the house all day and, because of that realization, I started to surrender myself to God. I started to fix all of the mess that I had made. I have a lot of debt, and I came up with an idea to help me pay it off.I started to sell anything online and it became successful. Little by little, I paid off all of my debts and now I am debt free and with savings.

Many of us had realizations and turning points because of this pandemic. Maybe it's having a huge effect on the world negatively, but there's also a story of hope, realization, standing up, bravery, and more.

This is a true story guys that I read online. It was written in Filipino and the testimony is longer than my article. I was crying while reading the story because God is really good. God is the answer to all our questions. I just love reading a redemption story like this.
