    Okay, we all know that, as human beings, we are imperfect and make a ton of mistakes. We also know we have only so much that we can actually control. I am on an emotional roller coaster ride because I don't know where my life is headed and I am just finding exits that just temporarily mask the real issue.

    Having been raised in sort of a Christian household--another topic in itself--I think that because we tend to rely on other people and others, when they themselves are not even in control, leads to disappointment, anxiety from uncertainty, and just sad results. I mean how many times have people lied to you, hurt you and just flat out rejected you. To rely on people that are like me is just hurtful. I guess I want to challenge the people who are suffering to find Jesus, and see how that turns out. Maybe, there is a reason for all this suffering. Maybe it's time for a change, if not THE change. Thanks, and I hope this will help somewhat.

    Your right kpmth3! Other people kick you in the teeth sometimes! Life seems a huge struggle at times. We do need others sometimes though, we can't go this life alone, it would be a very hard and lonely place. You feel as though you are on emotional roller coaster at the moment because of all the uncertanties... am I correct in saying this?

    I've been told that I rely too much on other people sometimes...guess that's what depression and suicidal thoughts do to you..... :huh:
