I believe in God. I care about people and their feelings. I always try to be kind to others, and I always am happy to see people living happy, abundant lives. However, inside I am very sad because I am not living the joyous, abundant life I would like to live. I often feel as if I just do not belong in this world - as if there is no place for me. I am a stay-at-home mom (which I love being), and I have a wonderful husband who works very hard to provide for us. Yet we still cannot afford a house, my child cannot have a dog (because we live in an apartment that does not allow dogs), and we have had no luck in finding an affordable, suitable apartment even though we have been diligently searching for over a year. I also often am struggling to pay my bills. I feel there is no hope at things getting better, because they haven't so far, and I pray and pray, yet things have yet to change for the better. Sometimes it feels like we are being punished by not being able to move or get our child a pet. Plus, my husband has been having very bothersome, uncomfortable tinnitus in his ears and all he does is work, so we don''t spend that much time together as a family. It is all very depressing. Then I see not-so-great, or not so nice, people with houses, dogs, more money and time with their spouses and I ask myself, "why them and not us"? I walk around every day feeling an ache in my heart over all of this, feeling like I do not know what to do to change things- like I am a person who is just not equipped for this world, and I do not know what to do.Answer Question
