Do you deserve the life you lead? Is it the life you want? If the answer to either of these is no, than what are you doing about it? We all need a little help right now so if you can tell us how to cope please do.

All my life I have been helpful to others.Some people made full use of me and denied the position that I deserve for quite some time.By God's grace I have done all that could be done to my near and dear and tried to establish myself in life very late.And even if I have miles to go I am pretty happy the way I am settled and I am very much sure that I deserve this present life very much.

Hey, Well the life that I lead right now isn't that good, but hopefully in the future I will change it. Right now I am still trying to look for a job, so it will be easier for me to fund my College. Hopefully all will be better in the future. Make sure you have a good day, God bless and Happy Lotting!!

Although I am not particularly materialistic the most difficult issue in my life at present is money as in lack of! I feel tired of working so hard for so little and concerning myself with finances all the time. I would love just once to go shopping without a list and buy whatever I want! I have an underlying feeling that things could be a lot easier and I keep hoping for change although I know I’ve got to be that change.

I do believe I deserve the life that I lead, event thought it is not exactly the life that I want. I believe if one never give up eventually one will achieve what one desire in life. And I will never give up on hope and striving till the end. BR.b PS. Sometime life if far from your expectation, but if you except it gratefully then your life will be different and your path will be re-appear.

The life that I lead today is very different from the life that I imagined when I was younger. My life has hasn't been easy. I had many goals and plans, but I haven't been able to achieve my goals, and I have had to change my plans many times. My illness was not a part of my plans, but I would say that I have a good life today. It is not the life that I planned or the life that I dreamed about when I was younger, but it is still a good life. I have a lot of good things in my life, and there are many things that I am grateful for.

I think I deserve a better life.I really don't like it the way it is now.When I ask myself if I could do something that would change it once and forever, the answer is yes.But I must be prepared to do that.Do you remember this quote that luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity?Do you know that often people aren't ready for changes? Today I saw an young invalid crossing the street.I thought:"Come on.You're not the unhappiest person here".I looked down - it feels good to have both legs. Imagine what we could do if we only were prepared to move on. Decide that you deserve much more than you have now. If you give too much, and receive little, stop being too kind.

I have times of feeling sorry for myself or feeling that life is unfair, but almost always, I find that my problems can be traced back to a choice I myself did or did not make. This helps me not blame and resent others, both very negative attitudes, as they hurt us more than the other person. As far as illness goes, I never say, Why me? Illness is not punishment, and I make the best of life in spite of it. Self-respect and forgiveness are important. Making adjustments to live fully, I have to do that often. And one thing I try to do, is learn from my mistakes! I hate when I repeat them instead lol. A very good question you've asked, by the way.

It isn't this life that I dream of but fate has it that I have to pass mountains and valleys to travel this life. It is with great disappointment that at this age I have yet to taste real happiness and success in life. But am not giving up hope yet. As long as I am still surviving I am still working on my dreams and hopefully with past mistakes I will learned to face the future with success. It is really never too late to discover a positive life. There must be reasons for everything that happened and I pray God will lead me to the right path.
