  • cause thats life and its how it works out.

    I thought we were finally going to have a good chunk of money in the bank savings and my car almost literally blew up.... air bags went off at 60 mph with no impact.(still dont know why lol)...and there goes the money again.

    sometimes all you can do is sigh and get back up again and try some more.

  • Well haven't you ever heard of BIRTH CONTROL? That could have been prevented. I am a true believer that God only gives you enough that you can handle so deal with what is ahead of you and things will all work out for you and the family, just think you will have wonderful new LO try to look at the bright side of things. Yes sometimes life isn't fair but things happen for a reason and try to be a believer of that. Everything will be ok at least you have a roof over you all heads and clothes on your back and food on the table.

  • Try focusing on what is right in your life, not on what is wrong in your life.

    It sounds like you may be depressed; you can ask your health care practitioner to refer you to a therapist.

  • 'Cause that's the side of your life you're focusing on: the negative.

    If you spent your days looking for beauty and peace and joy within your life, you'd see a lot of it. The pain and struggle would still be there --it just wouldn't feel so overwhelmingly important to you.

    P.S. You can handle this much --even if you feel like you're flailing, you ARE handling it. Give yourself a little credit and you'll feel more powerful and effective... and happier, too.

  • Everyone goes through a point in there life when things aren't going very well. You just need to make the best of what you do have. Be thankful you're able to have children. Many women aren't able to do so.

    Everything is possible when yo have Faith.
