    im only 15 but I still feel like I've wasted my

    life. I could be living right now but for the past years I've been stuck at home worrying about everything and being depressed. I have no childhood memories, not many memories of the past because I haven't lived at all. even to live is hard for me, the world is so big and I feel...

    Trying to be the golden child,

    trying to meet others expectations, when it honestly doesn't matter to me whatever the hell you think of me. I think it might be time for a change, and soon.

    I'm 30, going through a divorce

    and feel stuck in a career I don't enjoy. I can't shake the nagging feeling that I'm not where I belong or doing what I was meant to do. However, I can't figure out what either of those are and it's driving me crazy. I feel like I'm the epitome of wasted potential.

    Going back to boarding school

    for a second year only to get tortured by the staff members and stalked by negative people. The third I was just looking forward to going back home and never coming back here. But I'm still here and I don't know what to do.

    I really have nothing to show

    for myself. I just quit my job due to medical issues, & I took a "break" from college 2 years ago. I want to go back, but it's so expensive, & I don't want to be paying back loans for the rest of my life. I'm just worthless.

    I Have Nothing To Show For It

    I have absolutely nothing to show for my life so far.  I always have to start over when I break up with someone.  It has been 6 years and I'm still rebuild my life.  I have done nothing worthwhile with my life.  How do I change?
