I Sacrifice My Needs For Others

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 126 People

    It Has Always Been a Part of Me

      There was a time when I did get along with my adoptive mom, which was shortly after the divorce. She used to tell us stories about what we were like when we were toddlers, brought in to her home or what our previous living conditions were. Whether these stories are true I...

    I Can Deal. :)

    I live in a 5 person family. We aren't poor, but sometimes pay checks come in late and we scrounge for money. I was saving up for a new mattress because my springs are poking through mine and leaving red marks on my back. Well at one point a short while ago my dad was sick and my...

    Not Exactly True

    Raised in a broken home, I learned to hate dependency. My mom made less money per month than the rent. She wouldn't accept government assistance, but she almost expected friends and relatives to "loan" her money. Frankly, it embarrassed me. At 14, I begin bailing hay at $1.40...

    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.
