Life and family
« on: August 18, 2019, 03:46:18 AM »
I'm thankful for my life. Like my family is not really a complete family because my mom and dad separated when I was like 3, and my mom had lots of boyfriends and my dad had taken in a new wife and the new wife is like pregnant with my second stepsister (or brother, whatever).

But I'm glad that I'm alive and not like a homeless person. I go to school and I have a job waitressing and all and maybe when I graduate I can like pay off my loans when I start working a real job (not waiting tables). I'm thankful I have a car that I can use to go to school and get to the restaurant and meet with friends. I'm grateful that I have good friends who are like me and hardworking and not the rebellious type and we are all looking forward to being successful. I'm just happy I have a future and even if life is kinda tough right now I know it will be better if I just keep a positive attitude. I like that they have this section here where everyone can spread good vibes because if we are all negative all the time then I think we would all be depressed and angry and sad.

Good for you. I think everyone should be thankful for something. For your case, you don't have a complete family as you say, but you seem to have your heart in the right place. I know some people who have turned bitter because their parents separated. Glad to know young people like you still exist. We need that kind of positivity in these seemingly dark times.

I find it hard to be grateful for my family because I have no real family to speak of. I didn't know my real parents so I was placed in welfare care. Nobody liked me there. so I always acted out. I was disrespectful, rude and was always out of sorts. Nobody wanted to take me in. If they did, they treated me bad as well.

I'm an adult now, and though I never had a proper education, I taught myself life skills that have proven to be useful not just to living but to managing a business as well. If there's anything I am grateful for, it's myself. I am grateful for my anger and my bitterness because I was able to channel them and make myself a winner in the end.

I'm grateful for my family too. I have two kids aged 7 and 1 and they are a handful, but I'm glad to have them. My husband too. I am a stay-at-home mom, and have been since a little before my firstborn came out into the world. I miss working in an office and going out with friends for dinner or coffee after work, but there is nothing like being at home and seeing to my kids' needs and being home to welcome my husband when he arrives from work. Sometimes I want to scream my head off out of boredom from the routine - wake up in the morning, get eldest ready for school, make husband breakfast, play when the baby wakes, blah blah blah, but I have resigned myself to the fact that this is my life now. I guess it's just  a matter of perspective. I'm so glad I found this site - by accident, if I may add - I have some place to rant on. The baby's sleeping now, so I think I have some time to go through the other posts and leave comments. So I think right now I'm saying I'm grateful for my family and for this site, LOL.
