    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...

    I want to costar in the story of someone else's life instead of remaining in the backdrop. I feel like I'm on the sidelines watching everyone else live their lives the way I wish I could.

    I've been married for 35 years.
