No Family Support
Feeling like you have no family is the worst feeling in the world. I have been on my own since I was 18 but have supported myself my entire life. I have a three year old son and my own mother couldn't be there for me during the most important time in my life. What young adult wants to go through something like that with absolutely no family support? Sometimes I think of what would be worse... having no parents at all or having parents who just don't care. I know that sounds ungrateful because there are a lot of people out there who don't even have parents, but I can't help but wonder. I am not at all trying to bash my parents, but without family... you feel empty. I envy my friends and my fiance for having parents who actually care for them. Parents who love them unconditionally, and are there for them no matter what. I would kill to have that.. and even though I'm a strong person who can keep it together most of the time, it still hurts.
