  • Right this very moment, i am just existing. I'm wasting time here instead of living. ...sounds sad but i'm okay with it. It's not like i live to be on CM.
    I am living when i focus on life. when i play with my boys, when i rejoice in their simple joys. when i cuddle with my husband.

  • Raising a family is hard work! Just hang in there - the kids do grow up and you can pursue your dreams you may have put on hold. Think of a purpose in life - there are so many ways you can contribute.

  • I used to at times, but since I've had my son, I don't feel that way anymore. If nothing else, he's my reason for living, and he makes my life beautiful.

  • Sometimes. Right now is a bad time for us. DH is stressed really bad at work, I'm trying to get through school, we've had a death in the family, and tons of other things I don't even have time to list.

  • Yes. Very often. When the phone doesn't ring and no one has called me all day. When I answer a post, or text or E-mail, and no one answers me back. When I try to be friendly and reach out to people and they respond negatively, and not at all. Sometimes I feel very un needed by people other than my kids and I am a people person and just want to help people and make friends. I need to be needed and loved. Don't we all? But some days it just seems like I am dancing on this earth all alone. No one ever understands me or feels where I am coming from and that's annoying.

  • yes, because i have no one to share it with. It's fun going out with the girls, but i'd love to find that one exact right person to come home to.

  • Sometimes I do.

  • Some people just exist. They move through their days without ever really learning to live. Life is short. I do my best to live life to its fullest!
