I'm just tired

It seems like i do something nice, took the kids out to dinner, we never go out to eat & tonight the dryer breaks. I'm so tired and it seems like when i do something nice i pay for it.
Sick of crying, tired of trying. Yeah, i'm smiling but inside i'm dying.
I don't go out, don't drink, don't smoke, have a good job, do for my children - who seem to walk all over me at times as well.
I'm just so tired of being what i'm suppost to be. I've been alone for years because 8 thought raising my kids is more important.
But i'm tired of always being pushed back down.
I'm tired of having no friends and no real family.
I just want to give up. Whats the point in trying to keep doing the right things?
Everyone seems so fake to me, yeah i could try to share with someone and i'd get those fake smiles and fake we're here for you - for a few weeks, maybe even a month but everyone goes back to thier lives and 8 go back into my rut.
I don't smoke or drink and that seems to be an issue with everyone 8 know. Even the people from out church. I'm the out-casted one because of it.
I don't understand.
I just don't get it.
I do what is suppost to be right and still get kick back down, time and time again.
So, is going out to the bars the answer? Going out sleeping around?

Honestly, i don't have money for that and don't understand where most do.

Why? I just don't understand.
This is more or a rant than a question - thanks for reading.
Guess i'll get some sleep i have responsabilites tomorrow - won't want to scew up!

  • I understand how you feel about the drinking and smoking, I never have either and it seems like I have no friends now because of it. My dh is my one and only best friend since my BFF moved across the country. I couldn't imagine doing it alone though so I really feel for you. Its important to do stuff for yourself to keep your sanity and your spirits up but I also totally get the no money thing... Hopefully one day your kids will look back on everything that you sacrificed and really truly appreciate you for it :-/ No real advice to offer except hang in there, and prayers coming your way...who knows maybe you'll win the Powerball and all your problems will be taken care of ;-)

  • Hugs, first priority is get rid of your SO. You seem like you can take care of yourself & kids just fine without him. Find a Man who is worthy of your love since that is what you deserve. Life is so much better spent with someone who loves you. Seek & you will find! GL!

  • How old are your kids? If they are teens. It is time to get a life of your own.

  • hugsgroup hug Hang in there, get some rest & hopefully tomorrow is a better day.  Start delegating some of the chores & try to make some time for yourself.  If mommy's happy then everyone's happy- ya know. :)

  • I know how you feel. Try to take some time for yoursel. A book club or a long walk in the evening. Or just go to some shops you enjoy and walk around. Maybe the church you are involved in is not the right one for you.
