I Want to Be Appreciated

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 369 People

    I've been married for 35 years.

    I'm not one to share my experiences,

    good or bad, with others. Most of the time, I listen to others when they are happy as well as when they are hurting. I constantly find myself comforting others or fixing their problems. Believe me, I'm delighted to be of assistance to anyone in need. Aiding others, in any way I...

    Doesn'T Matter

    I feel that it doesn't matter what I do I just can't reach anything I want. While I was studying I always tried my best, learn a lot but at the exam I always get worse grade than I thought I deserved. Sometimes it was bad luck, for example if the exam built around themes and we...
