    ..I was in a relationship for 10 years, almost got married but didn't (that's a separate long story). I found out I was pregnant about 6 months after starting said relationship with him. We had disagreements but everything was great overall, it was still lust I guess during my...

    And now i have a feeling it's gonna destroy me.

    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...

    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

    I've found that physically "giving back" to my community as a volunteer or an extra set of hands makes ME feel good.  I've moved around a lot, and participating in a community event is a great way to meet people, and to make new friends with similar interests.  Giving...

    I've been through so much
