    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 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.

    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.

    At an early age, I knew I wanted to do

    something unique with my life. I knew I would never fit into a "regular job." I was an exceptionally attractive kid, and somewhere near the age of 12 I saw a clothing catalog and knew I wanted to be a model. My mom said "no" and that was that. I remained attractive and upon HS...

    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.

    Wasted days of my youth.

    I remember telling myself that I would not regret my choices. That I made them for specific reasons that kept me safe, shielded from harm. I could not have known then that life would point out those decisions and mock them with the present anguish. How humorous. How naive I was...
