So far I am always saved from pathetic situation at the last minute. I thought I was destined to be a loser, no job no income and my husband's business was at its worse when his contract was not renewed. My two sons were still studying in colleges and needing financial alms from us. The last coin has been withdrawn from the bank and to ask for assistance from my family is a remote idea. Where once I was up there and suddenly reduced to a pauper is hard to swallow. I am really lost as to where to get our next meal. From 3 meals a day it was reduced to plain broth for the duration of few weeks. I suddenly remember my mother's words that you will never fail if you pray and ask God of guidance but not to ask for wealth.I prayed every night to ask God's mercy and give me the strength to go on in my trouble times. I was not expecting an instant miracle but it did when out of the blue my family's property was zoned for a big housing development. I was given the task to negotiate the deal with the developer and having worked before in a housing developers office I managed to successfully close the deal with big amount of cash on hand and few units of houses shared amongst the siblings of which I got 2 units, now under construction. Blessed the lord, I have been tasted at the lowest ebb of my life.

I'd have to say that I've felt this way for most of my life. One person after another in my life made it clear to me that I wasn't what they wanted, that I was a disappointment, that I'd never live up to their expectations, starting with my father, ending with my husband. Even with loads of therapy, it's been a hard self-image to overcome and I still fall back into it periodically when things aren't going well. It's one thing to KNOW you have value and another to FEEL it as well. Sometimes the feeling part overrules the knowing. The entire thing is long and convoluted and I'd rather not go into it all here, but I understand more about people in similar situations than many do because of having gone through it myself. I am able to empathize with them in a way many counselors can't because they have never been there themselves and just don't understand. Book knowledge is fine and I know that they understand the whys - but at the same time, they don't understand the why nots. If you haven't been there, you can't understand how easy it is to go back - unless by chance you've dealt with someone in your own family going through the same thing.
