I Feel Like I'm Stuck In A Rut......help

Hey everyone.My name is Kyle.Recently i have started feeling like i'm getting nowhere.Here's my reason's why.......

I know what i want to do but i can't get into it because it took me a while to figure out (psychology and all the courses are closed)
Also i don't have a job because i was laid off so i can't do an open university course.

I have all these ideas i want to follow but noone to believe in them (i want to start a group for drug users with a difference to help them overcome addiction ect)

I have a son and his mum barely cares about him.We seperated a while back but now her house in in a state constantly and social are threatening to take him and she want's me to take him.

I feel depressed because i'm not supporting myself or my son.

I regret not being able to attend school in the year of my prelims/exams.

Basically it all culminated together plus at the moment apart from my son my life seems empty.I want to get out this rut and i keep trying to come up with a plan but it seems like i have no chance to reach my dream of getting a batchelors degree in psychology.

Am i being unrealistic or stupid focusing on this or is it possible.I am only 19 is it realistic?

i want to start a group to help people overcome addiction too. anyways, good luck with everything. be thankful you're 19 and still have time to accomplish a lot of things. i hate to say this, but psychology is bullshit, although a degree is helpful if you want to go into the helping profession. sometimes i wished i had majored in psychology so i could at least put it on a resume.

Your first priority is to yourself. Your second is to your children. Your third is to your happiness. <br />

If a mountain seems too big to climb stop standing at the bottom looking at the top. Look down at your feet. Take a few steps. <br />

You don't have to figure it all out right now. Take care of you and your son. Make small steps towards your degree. So you can't get the psych course- take a college writting course or a math one- something that you will need later that you can get out of the way. Apply for jobs. Take care of your son. Take care of yourself. <br />

Rome wasn't built in a day and neither is your life. Just take a few small steps in the right direction. You will get to the top of the mountain in your own time. Maybe you end up at the top of a different mountain. You never know until you start moving.
