    I met a guy online. Not in any way is it romantic , just that I'm a friend in need basically. He's 15 years old and suicidal. I practically expanded his life to a week. I'm dreading the end of the week. I don't want him to die, I care about this stranger , and I can't do...

    I've been through so much

    Most days I feel lost.

    I am so happy with my life, but others are not. I take so much for-granted and I hate that about myself. I want to give all I have to making others live in a better place. I want to have faith in the world I live in. I want to know my life has meaning. I do not need money, I do...

    Rejuvenation

    Helping others is truly a fine quality to allow. Ensure that everyone is well respected as no one can manage and do everything on their own.
