*I Wish Things Would Get Better*

Things have progressively gotten worse for us as time has gone by. Some days it is hard to want to do anything at all. I don't know what to do anymore. I am so tired of struggling, I am sick of the tears flowing down my face. I just want things to change for us. I want things to get better so badly. There have not been many times where I can say, things were good. I am trying to focus on the small positive things I can think of but that is so difficult in this truly rough time. I do not know how not to stress. My husband keeps telling me not to worry it will improve-but if I don't see that happening it makes it hard to believe it.

I know things will not stay this bad forever but I just wish things would hurry up and get better for our family! So sad today...

I'm so sorry. Your feelings come through so clearly. I wish I could help. Just don't let hard times break the family up. It's an error you'll never reconcile. Believe me.

Thank you. I appreciate your kind words so much. I won't let this destroy our family, we have been together for 10 years and we belong together. =)

Sorry to hear that. Hope all will progress to a better beginning again.
Stay strong, and have good faith in the positive things. Your husband's encouragement does mean alot.
Cheers. Take care.

Might I offer this? "Better angry than sad. Just direct your anger appropriately." I can't say the name of who told me. It's the most I can do to directly help you, right now.

I'm so sorry you are having a hard time lately. Things have been tough for me on a personal level too so I know how you feel.

LovingMyBabies I feel for you. I wish I were a billionaire, I would help you and your family out. All I can do is support you with your articles here. I know hard times. I have been there. And I know stress way too good. I don't want stress as my friend anymore. But it comes anyway. You do need to find places where your husband can show off his art and get noticed. He is way too good to let it waste away. That could be the ticket. Hang in there.

So sorry to hear this. Have you a friend or relative you can confide in? Someone who will just listen and not offer advice? This is something I learned many years ago. Most people do not want advice, even if they ask for it. they just need someone to listen. And the best question anyone can ask someone they are truly listening to is "What advice would you give to your best friend if they were in this situation?" Because most of us know what has to be done IF something needs doing and the best person to give us advice is ourselves. Otherwise we need listened to and supported. If you don't have someone physical you can turn to or phone, then ask yourself "who would i most want to have listening to me"? Imagine yourself the best possible confidante or even a committee of confidantes. Ask them what they would do. You may be depressed, if so, a visit to your doctor may help. Exercise can also help with depression. One of the best books i read where this was covered was "Sink Reflections" by Marla Cilley, the Fly Lady. She ended up in hospital for 10 days, when a friend asked her to come with her to help (the friend) but it turned out the appointment was for Marla, who didn't even realise she needed help. Since that time, she has developed a site for disorganised beings and many have come to realise that a daily routine of tasks to do is one of the best ways of getting out of bed and started on the day, even when depressed.
I hope your times get better very soon.

I will private message you on tsu. I will give you my phone number and if you ever just want to talk and vent - I will listen and if you just want to pray together - I can do that too.

I hope things soon turn around for you and start looking up again.

I hope whatever small gift I can give with my view will add up and help you out. Times can be hard, but you will make it through!

I am sorry you are having a rough time, I understand how that is. I hope the new year brings you much better times, loads of love and happiness, good health and money (because who doesn't need it?)

I do hope things went better for you and your family through this past year and that 2016 will be good for all of you.
