    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'm still young, I know,

    but I want to experience things, and at the place live now and such, I don't have that. I wish I could tell the full story, but I'm not gonna do it here (Ask me for my Skype if you really want to and also can help me.)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
