  • Your not a failure. If you need a friend or someone to listen you can message me. Please don't feel alone. I am sending prayers that everything will get better for you and hopefully soon you will find a job. Don't be so hard on yourself -times are tough. Take one day at a time and keep looking for a job hopefully something will come up soon. Atleast you are taking the steps to better yourself and that is most important.

  • you will be okay. Its just that your young and this event has happened in your life. Your family is human too and they may have to deal with the let down of certain expectations they had planned for your life. It will be a struggle. Hell its a struggle for old woman too once the baby is here, and they look into those eyes they will fall in love with the baby then just give them time.
