    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?

    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...

    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?

    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.
