    Stuck Between a Rock and a Hard Place

    I have tried so many things to try and better myself. I even went back to school in healthcare and sent out resume after resume, only to be turned down. Sure, I went on a couple of interviews, but it never blossomed into anything. What do you do when you don't know what to do...

    exactly what I wanted and had everything planned out. Then I grew up, got close to achieving it, and didn't want it anymore. now I feel trapped and I'm not sure what to do. I've always been good at several different things but I've never been great enough at one specifically...

    All I see is an alcohol relapse,

    getting hooked on pills, and never going back to college. I have always felt like I would end up killing myself one day so it didn't matter what I did with my life.

    I don't know what the future holds.

    I have these thoughts and sometimes dreams of a happy life but each day nothing happens and it's like I'm wasting time not doing anything. And the question "what if" always comes into my head, like what if things don't get better, then what?

    so dead? Why am I seeing others in pain but I'm laughing? Why do I have such horrible parents but I wish them best? Why am I breathing even though I'm slowly getting swept away by something I cannot see? I'm dying inside and yet no one cares. I can see the light but no one...

    I have no plans for the future so far. And I just feel too hopeless to make some because I don't think I am capable of anything. That really worries me.

    I Often Wonder -

    what's to become of me. I ask God how I'll survive.  When I ask these questions, I feel guilty because I know he'll always provide, so why would I ask these stupid questions? It means that I need to work on my faith. So, I answered my own question.

    I worry, I worry far too much.

    And i understand that worrying isn't productive it's about action, I just worry that I might not be doing enough, not taking all the experiences that I can! I hope everything turns out okay in the end - anyone else as much of a worrier as I am?

    I am afraid that I'm going to wake up one day

    at the end of my life, having done nothing I've dreamed of. To just know that there will be a day when everything ends gives me extreme anxiety. I feel like my life is going to speed by before I have a chance to live it.
