I Want Things That Money Cannot Buy

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 391 People

    I have always thought of it this way.

    People go on about how much they give me, materiel wise, and I appreciate that. But I would be ten times happier living in a cardboard box with my whole family and people who loved me then in a massive great house with all the treasures of the world. That is how I am :)

    Standard Issue

    Like most I want love, true love and understanding.  Someone to be there and share life with.  Something natural and right.  But I wouldn't mind a new car, nice house, and a huge tv. :P

    Not Love

    That's too easy to say.  And believe it or not, some people's love can be bought.  I know two people who have proved this.  It's not as simple as a banking transaction, but money is what made it. Happiness?  I don't know.  You're supposed to be able to...

    When you're only 17 seems that you cannot do much to change things around you, so you just have to accept them. And sometimes it's so hard to deal with that!
