    Pros:

    I have my health, I have my two kids who love me (and I love them) and are healthy, I have the best parents who would jump over the moon for me and are still pretty young considering my age, I am happy where I live, I have gainful employment (even if they are not the jobs of my life), for now, I have a roof over my head and can put food on the table, I found this forum for support, I'm bilingual (which means I can participate in this forum:D)

    Cons:

    I live with a wife (soon to be ex, I hope) who wouldn't shed a tear if I dropped dead today, I am in the middle of a very rough divorce, I feel like the world (minus my kids, parents, and a few other LOYAL friends) is against me, I feel like a loser for being in debt above my head (even if it is mostly do to my wife not working all these years), I wish I had a job I could be proud of, I am scared of what awaits my kids and I if our apartment goes to foreclosure, I am scared of what awaits me when my wife and I do finally get divorced (mostly, how often will I get to see my kids)
