What is the greatest gift someone could give you?

What is the greatest gift someone could give you?

I cannot express how much it would mean to me if some well-meaning stranger would pay off my student loans. This financial burden is a needy puppy nipping at my heels. Although I’m on the SAVE plan now with my servicer, I’d simply not like to worry about them anymore.

Reflecting on my countless sacrifices in pursuing my higher education always made me wonder if it was worth it in the end if I’m going to be saddled with debt that I feel like I’ll be stuck with for the rest of my life. The thought of being freed from the shackles of student debt fills me with an overwhelming sense of relief.

Although I’m nobody, and no one will probably read this blog entry ever, I hope that by putting the words down, I can manifest something out of this. I would be forever grateful if someone could alleviate this stress from my life.

It would be life-changing for me.


Have courage and be kind,
