I Sacrifice My Needs For Others

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 138 People

    Dear God... Why Me?

    I have always been that guy to help others who are in need, sometimes to a fault. For the past few years I have been a caregiver to a very sick friend. They are on life support and reside within my home. Fastforwarding... I finally landed the job I struggled for a year to get...

    Why Not?

    For the most part, I am happy with what I already have. Granted, things are missing from making this my ideal situation, but that doesn't mean things aren't good anyway. I'm willing to give some things up so my family can have.
