    Most Definitely, I Believe ...

    Most definitely, I believe life is going to get a lot tougher but it will be more rewarding, I would love for my children to be able to acknowledge their neighbours like we used do when we were young, instead of being too scared to or worse......not caring enough to bother.

    I just want my life to level out.

    ..always one step forward 2 steps back. I blame others for this but if I didn't give in to the negative things in other peoples lives I'd probably be doing a whole lot better! Wish their decisions didn't affect my life. Ugh
