    I Could Do So Much Better Than This

    Why am I here writing stories when I could be working and saving money for the things I want (and need)?

    And It's Pathetic...

    I don't know why I ruminate and struggle with the strong sense of loss and grief over my life. I feel very powerless to change circumstance and even more so over my attitude.

    Why Me?

    Everyday I feel sorry for myself and ask why me. All I ever wanted to be is normal, popular, liked, loved. Why do I feel like I am paying for every mistake I ever made. Why can’t I be happy. Why can’t I stand up for myself. Why can't I get my family back...
