i am having one of those days to where i am thinking about my life and well to be honet it is depressing. it just seems like when things start to get ok something else happens. i have been thinking about my life and my past and looking at what the future holds and to be honest i dont like it. i am tired. i am tired of working for min wage and never getting anywhere. i am tired of getting up at dawn , getting dressed, working, cleaning house, cooking, worrying about bills. i am tired of filling out assistance papers for food. i am tired of never having money to be able to get myself a pair of shoes i need. i want to go back to school, i want a better life, i want my kids to have more of what they need and want, i want my husband to be able to afford gas to go to the lake and fish, etc. growing up i didnt have money i didnt even have a home most of the time. i had it pretty ruff but i made it. i was homeless, scared, alone, all kinds of things. i have seen things i dont wish for my worst enemy to see. i have hurt. i love my husband and i love my kids and usually i am happy with that but i want more to. is that wrong. i want to work somehwere i like or i want to stay home with my kids. my husband cant work he broke his back and hasnt been able to find anything. so it is all up to me. and i am tired. i am tired of trying so hard and never getting anywhere. i have dreams and i have tried to make it work but there are not enough hours in a day to make it work. i dont have the energy to do it all. i just wish i could take a break. i wish i could go to school. i wish i had a better job. i wish i wish i wish. its just my wishes dont come true and i know that. when i was little all i wanted was a parent who cared. didnt get that. i wanted food to eat when i was little but that didnt happen often either. i am tired.

Good day to you!!!! I understand what you are feeling right now for we are human and I knew everyone feels the same in our life. I will ask you today if you won't mind. Do you believe Jesus Christ our God and savior? One thing I could advice to you that you just trust Him and lift up to Him all what you've done and share it to Him. He is always there waiting for you, want to share all your plans and what you want to do in your life. Trust Him and believe on Him. Jesus answers faith not needs. And lastly, try to do things that makes you happy and take life easy. God give us this world we live in in order to share with us and to enjoy. Everytime that you feel down, count your blessings. And what you are experiencing right now has always reason and it depend on us how to handle. Enjoy life.

I am so sorry you are having all of this seem to have piled up on you. Sometimes we can only get through stuff like this one day at a time. It is hard to see where things will get better but I am sure they will, if you are willing to put the work into it. And I think you are. Can you 'de-clutter' some of your home and things to make it easier to get needed work done. Is your husband helpful? Can he do part of what you are doing? Can you start saving little bits of money for a specific goal. If you can look at your life, pick out the positive, loving husband and children, good health, while you fight the up hill battle. Best wishes.

You need to look for the good things that happens every day. I was a single parnet and used to asked why is this happening to me. Then one day I had a flat tire on the road home from work and one of the women I worked with and her boyfriend stopped to help me. They took me to get my tire fixed and then they got me a milk shake and when I was crying on her shoulder she told me to look for the good thing that happened to me instead of the bad things and it turned my life around. Now I look for the good things that happen instead of all the bad...Cause everyday something good happens to you wheither it is someone giving you a smile to brighten your day or saying thank you for something you did for them. You also need to get a phyical to see there is nothing wrong with you. Take a few minutes every day for yourself even it's just a bath to relax you. If you are worring about bills and things the kids are doing don't. Things have a way to work themself out. Remember to put the problems in Gods hands....She also so told me to Let go and Let God. You would be surprised how every thing works out.

If you can listen to some music that you love, and treat yourself to a great Bubble bath....do some things just for you that you make you happy....wether its making some brownies or enjoying nature , a walk, what ever it may be. My mom always said that you can look at the good things that you do like and that will help you. What actions have you taken to apply for a new job or do something to take a step , a new step towards something you want....? Good luck and I hope these ideas really help.....

Hi, i feel sorry for your state and wish I could help in a better way than messaging you through My lot. All i can say is that you are not alone in this world, each one of us have faced troubles, and each one of us are still facing challenges and have our share or problems and worries daily to deal with. But for each one ouf us, our problems are the worst. We feel that the mountain has fallen on our heads alone, but when we try and look at another persons problems and try to place oursleves in their place we realise that our worries and problems are not a patch to the other person. So look around you, you maybe better off than a lot many others around you too. There maybe more people in a worse state than you. As regard the wishes, well if all our wishes were granted wed have nothing to look forward and live for ! So keep wishing and keep praying, am sure that soon day, with a dedicated positive attitude you will rech your goals, just pray and remain positive. And remember that God is testing your patience, so dont give way. Keep the faith.

going back to school can hardly come true, and let the shopping and listening to music join their ancesters! no use for curing the inner struggle of ezmoney75503's heart. to be honest, i rly rly understand ur situation, and i was tired too, so tired that i had lost my faith to all the things happend around, during those months, i kept memorizing on the past and looking for the “gloomy" future.... day by day, with pain and hesitation as well as hardness. well, life is just like dat. at least, my life. 1 day, my frd said that our life is absolutely better than animals. we dont need to worry about shelters, where to get food( ignoring whether we can afford it), how to sleep well but not be eaten by other beasts. what's more, we enjoy watching films that the wild can not ever understand, we drive cars, the wild has no shoes.. funny, huh??? what i wanna say is that life provides us more, far more than our imagination. what depression, what difficulty should lower its head in front of a beautiful flower, cuz' it's life!! c'mon! cheer up! do what u do as normal, and smile at ur daily life, it's great, great than everything!!! we, every1 will always support you!!!!! /hug
