Unhappy Struggling. - August 4th 2011, 11:55 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

Life at the moment is really overwhelming for me. I don't think I can handle much more of what I'm going through. I resigned from my current job so in a few weeks, it'll be my last shift. I want to go to University but I might not get in and I'll have nothing. I've deferred one of my offers from University till next year so I'm going to see what happens. I was thinking of working at McDonalds part-time and still applying for other Universities to become a Music/History teacher or a Music producer. The offer I've deferred is a History degree and later on be able to study teaching. But still everything is taking it's toll on me and I can't take it anymore. I'm trying so hard but nothing is working out for me. I just wish I had someone elses life. I want to be happy. I want to be OK.

Hey Rianna,

I know it's hard for you at the moment, and no-one expects it to be easy when you feel like this. I think what you need to do, is what's best for you. When it comes to university, there are options, and there's nothing to stop you applying for more. I'm not the best one to give advice on this since I've not been to college yet, but I do wish you the best for it.

Happiness isn't always easy, but it isn't at all impossible to achieve. Do you talk to a counsellor? If not, it might be useful for you to do so as they'll be able to offer you further advice for this. Try to keep yourself occupied; excersise, socialising - that kind of stuff. It will really help. I know this sounds like it will be hard to do, but you can do it. Don't give up because life will get better. That's said a lot and it doesn't make it any easier to believe no matter how many times it's said, I understand that, but it's true, life really will. Keep fighting. I'm here if you ever want to talk, so just shoot me a PM, okay?

Take care and keep your chin up,

❤ Nana ❤

the sole purpose of human existence
is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.

I know it is hard to feel positive when you feel like a loser. I'm struggling, too. But, we should try to keep holding on to hope. When you feel hopeless, think about your family or anyone who you love and loves you. They could give you strength and motivations.

It is not length of life, but depth of life.
