Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 126 People

    It Has Always Been a Part of Me

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    An Answer To A Simple Question

    I just thought I would share how an answer to a simple question that I asked inspired me. A young lady who I don't know answered my question regarding willingness to sacrifice by saying she would sacrifice all just to make someone smile. My cynical mind doubted the validity of...

    The worst thing is when you expect someone to hold the door open for you, and that 'someone' slams the door on your face. What a complete moron!

    I have manners. I believe manners are extremely important. It just makes me feel good to be nice. I'm a woman, but I'd still hold the door open for both guys and women.

    For me, it's hard not to put myself in their shoes. It would be nice if more people would do that. It's almost like I can feel their pain with them.
