I Sacrifice My Needs For Others

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 125 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...

    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...
