I don't know if I have the energy to go into great detail right now, but I have been hurting over many things for years now. From Feeling conflicted with family to dealing with not finishing college and being unsure i ever will, currently stuck in a job i'm not sure i want to be at but don't really have any better options right now, to dealing with being discouraged about love mainly due to experiencing a painful rejection six years ago (let alone other rejections). I try to be grateful with what I have such such as 17 months sobriety, but I feel somewhat hopeless about my life right now. I stay at a recovery hosue and I actually graduated a few months ago which means I don't have to be here anymore, but I'm here because there are still some things I have to work on as well as it's close to things such as my job and other things I do that involve my recovery. However, it can be stressful at times, espcially when it comes to living with other alcoholics and addicts. Not everyone who is here is trying to better themselves. As I said, I just feel discouraged and hopeless right now and I am trying not to, but the hurt in my life that has been around for sometime just never seems to go away. I don't really know how to make it go away. Anyway, I'm sorry for rambling again.
