I am almost 40 years old and don't have a single good friend in the world. Almost every single "friend" I have on facebook is a company offering me weekly coupons. I have four kids and a husband, none of whom have any respect for me at all. My house is constantly trashed, and all I do all day is clean - when I clean anything, literally 15 minutes later one of the kids (or the husband) comes and makes it a mess again. I had a chance to get a PhD, but dropped out to stay home with the kids. I am a total, utter loser. I cannot even believe that this is my life. All I want is to be free again, to have the opportunity to see the world, to have real experiences, to do something other than cook and clean and be disrespected every single day of my life. If any woman is reading this who thinks her life sucks because she doesn't have a man - this is your chance. Go - BE FREE. See Bali. See Barbados. See giraffes in Africa. Because if you get stuck with some man and four kids, you are freaking screwed. If you are a teenager, I know you won't believe me, but this is the best time of your life! You can do anything! You can go anywhere! The whole time I was in high school and college, I thought when I "fell in love" and got married, suddenly I would find the real meaning in life, but I'm telling you - it's bullshit. I could be seeing the world right now, but I gave everything up for a man. And I am miserable. I am living in an area I hate, I don't have a single friend, I do nothing but cook and clean all day, every day, and every single day I live with the knowledge that I gave up graduate school to live a life I hate.
YOUR LIFE DOESN'T SUCK so long as you have options. High school sucks? Sure. Yeah, but you'll be gone soon enough. Explore the world! Make better choices than I did! LIVE. There is a world out there, and you can see all of it if you make the right choice. My only hope is that someone who needs to see this will. And that maybe that will make my own situation make more sense in the scheme of things.
