There are times in life where I have felt like this but I just managed to remind myself that no matter how big the problem is it will always pass, or get better, or be for a good reason. Every time I've felt like there is absolutely no way things are going to get better I just tried to tough them out, and I waited and one day they did get better! WAY BETTER! My life has changed in so many ways and I love everything about it now. I have met amazing people, really really good people, and am doing things I never thought I am capable of, things I thought were impossible for me to do. I am loving my life now after feeling the way you do now, and I am so glad I just waited for things to pass no matter how much it seemed impossible because I am experiencing things I would never want to miss out on! Please just keep going forward it will get better I absolutely promise!
