    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 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?

    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.
