Grew up in a toxic family, got pregnant at 20 and told me to leave, came to the us, had 2 beautiful children, my ex husband got advantage of me, now 41 with a 19 year old and 14 year old, both parents died, alone but still with so much to give... Lots of love... My upbringing was awful, my source of love was always missing. Help? Moving to southern California soon, L

I can relate to your situation, something keeps you going, its a inner strength, iv grown a thicker skin through it and can judge characters by first impression too.
So its not all bad.

Your story is a sad one, i too have no family so i understand your pain. It can be tough especially during the holidays, when others are with their families and you have none. my advice to you is to keep on striving, dont let the people who have hurt you win. And take care of yourself by loving and respecting yourself, its their loss that you are not a part of their lives. You are worthy, they are too blind to see that. Hope you are enjoying California with your kids and try joining groups like meetup.com to connect with others.

You can also become an organizer of your own group if you like also. Its awesome!, I wish you all the very best on your journey in life. Seek out things that will nuture your soul also, like wayne dyer books and youtube speech, les brown is another good one as well as guy finley anyway, Thank you for having the courage to share your story and many blessings to you.
