I graduated Magna Cum Laude, top 10% of my class from the number 1 college in the country for what I went to school for. I worked for 6 months in my profession making good money until January of 2009 when I was laid off. The day I got the pink slip was the same day I made an offer on my first house, needless to say I didn't go through with purchasing that house. I hadn't been working long enough to qualify for unemployment benefits. 2 weeks after being laid off, and coming home from my neighbors funeral I found a notice of foreclosure on my apartment door, my landlord was being foreclosed on, I had to move. I found another apartment, which wasn't beautiful, but it was a roof over my head. 6 months into being laid off my partner lost his job. We were both unemployed. I was forced to get a job as a bank teller making one third what I had been making. My job sucked, yet I managed to get promoted within 6 months to a banker position. That job was so unbelievably awful I was barely able to get out of bed in the morning, and cried everyday in the bathroom at work. I found another teller job 3 months later at another bank. A year and a half later I am still a bank Teller, now making 2/3 what I was making first out of school. I recently moved into a rental house... the sewage backed up overflowing my shower with raw smelly sewage 2 weeks into moving in, on my birthday. Then the sink and washing machine backed up 2 weeks after that. Last week my partner got offered a job back up north, he took it. Today, I came home in a rain storm to find the roof leaking in 3 rooms onto our belongings. We are broke. We cant afford to move, and we are stuck in this slum. I think about killing myself everyday. This may not sound so bad. But these are just the high points, all the little mishaps and bumps in the road seem to go unnoticed these days, the road is nothing but potholes.

Everday! I'm sad. The government won't give me a green card and I can't do nothing! My parents work there asses off everyday and I can't help. All my friends drive a car and have a license and I can't get one. My mom hasn't seen her mom for 8 years. We can't go back to our home country because we wont be able to come back. Now my workers permit is expired i cannot even get a job because they wont renew it. A lot of people in American don't know what they have....American Citizenship. I do good in school, my GPA is 4.3 My rank was under 100 out of 800 people. My lawyer says something will happen just wait but everytime I ask people they think she is trying to trick me..

I can't see my dad working like this; I literally can't do anything but wait for the government. ALL my friend have a drivers license and I don't. All I do is listen to songs and cry....Life sucks so bad and all these people around me don't know what they have; Citizenship. My case is going on, there is like some percent I might get my greencard... I wish someone could be me for one day, I want to see how they feel...It's like im trapped in the country that people call 'Free Country'. I wish the government had a heart.I didn't do anything wrong? I didn't kill anyone, I didn't... why me? :( My parents havn't seen their own parents for 8 years...Imagine that guys...That's just MESSED UP!!!!!!!!! MAN! FUCK MY LIFE!

As much as my life is sucks it is an interesting life to live.I am the end product of match-making and inter-racial marriage,and both my parents are of mix parentage too and grown up from a different country and different lifestyle.Both of my parents came from a parents that have a multiple marriages, hence was not brought with proper parents and lacked of love. I am mixed with four different races, but my parents had make a big mistake in choosing one race and a religion for me,written in my birth certificate, as to follow the rule of the country,where they both met and got married.My life was a disaster in trying to be the race that appear in my ID, which was not even the race of my parents.It sucks to live in a country that demand to prove your identity with a race and religion and it is more sucks that I have no power to object to it as I was a baby.I was a confused child as my parents fought alot, my fucking mother started to humiliate my father races, and they lives seperate life,my father go back to his original country,I have to grow up in a two different country with a different lifestyles.I hate to be with my fucking mother as she had abused me alot,especially when she nagging and ranting like a mad woman, forcing me to devot to the religion that she had chosen for me.Unlike my father,he doesn't live based on any religion,his life was just to live and work hard to survive, and at the same time to appreciate and respect nature,as nature in return will be kind...

I have a fucked up life.... When I was 6 years old, my parents forced my to move from the country that I, to this day, LOVE to the country that I to this day HATE. When I arrived to this new country, I spoke not one word of English. To make it worse, when I had to enroll is school, I was constantly discriminated and made fun of because of my skin color, and the fact that I was a big boy. I got my first girlfriend when I was in 8th grade. It lasted 3 days. I never had too many friends, only back in my native country did I have tons of friends, but even so I only got to visit for about one month or two months each year. Anyway, I was made fun of skin color and stuff until I was a Freshman in high school, but I got over it. I lost weight, grew up, etc and girls call me the hottest guy in my entire High school ( sounds cocky, but I really do look like a super model ). But even though I look good, I still can't get a girlfriend because girls call me awkward. Last girlfriend I had lasted 2 months ( Record - btw Junior now ). Parents wise- never really talk to them and the only time I talk to my dad is when we fight and I fucking hate him. I've only had sex once, and I felt like a GOD DAMN loser. Religion wise, sure Gods exists, but he finds it so entertaining to fuck people over, this world is so fucking unfair, and he just sits back and laugh...I suffer from depression and have constant thoughts of attempting suicide. But what hurts most is when your friends don't drink from the same cup as you because of your skin color ( I'm slightly tan - in homeland, I'm considered white ).
Oh well, thats my life for you, I read some of the other stories, hope you people's lives get better.

i had a sheltered, western upbringing until about the age of 13. i live in australia currently, but i lived in the US for 12 years, ive travelled the world, ive been to 12 different schools and im only 16.
adjusting to all these moves became hard. kids at school knew me as a brain or a freak, i tried my best to fit in, but couldnt fit in anywhere. if i ever made a group of friends, they constantly bitched about me and ended up humiliating me in the end, if it wasn't that, i was eating my lunch alone in the bathrooms. i didn't understand, i am just like them, why do they pick on me?
when i moved to australia, i was thrown into a girls school. basically, i didnt fit in because i wanted to fit in so badly, i just wished someone could actually like me rather than what i was used to. girls started bitching about me, sometimes they'd harass me and i started having panic attacks at school. i left the school after a year. i moved to another school. i didnt bother trying to fit in at this one, that plan backfired too. i ended up having to eat my lunch under the stairs, avoiding everybody, praying that one day one of them might talk to me and accept me as a friend. that was until i met hallie. she was rebellious, funny, and interesting, but also had extreme problems, including a growing drug addiction. being both misfits, we got close.
hallie introduced me smoking cigarettes, drinking, smoking pot and LSD. i was excited and willing to take all of them considering it w...

My fucking life has been inbalanced ever since I was a toddler. My mom left me after a few years she brought me into this world and dad wasn't really around for most of my childhood to teenage life.
I fled Vietnam with my aunt when I was 5 years old. I arrived in America in 1986. From then, I was pretty much living with different relatives every few years. My relatives welcomed me to their home but I never felt that equality in their homes.
With lack of love and attention from my family I begin to lose my direction in life. I begin to hang around with the wrong crowds and begin to commit crimes in my early teens. Robbery , bugulary , battery , shooting, selling drugs ... I've done it before I even turned 18. I did what it took to provide and proof myself to friends and the streets.
After I did some jail for a crime I got caught up with. I then realized that I was going no where and had nobody.. no strong support and I was especially sick with the life I was living. I always felt angry no matter when, where or who I was surrounded by.
I met my girlfriend , now wife at the age of 18. With her encouragements, I Then begin to self rehabilitate myself and got a legitimate job. I did my best to do right but for some reason I would always be surrounded by negative people. Even my wife's family was ghetto. I always felt that negative energy... I always surrounded by drug dealers and dope-fen. Almost all of the people I knew then used drugs.....

So, here's my story. I'm 17 atm, higher-than-average intelligence, fluent in three languages, etc. Not even that ugly. But here comes the nasty shit.
About two years ago, I moved to another country, that saying, I have to mention that I also moved from middle class to being just plain poor. And oh the irony, the country I'm currently residing in has higher HDI than my homeland. And why did I move? Well, my dad, apparently, seeing that we "Have no future" in our homeland, sold everything we owed, even indebted us beyond reason and moved. Needless to say, it didn't go well. It took him a year to find a job, debts rose, in the mean time, my mom dumped his dumb ass, he lost the job, and now he's... I don't know what he's doing. But nonetheless, we're broke. And now... Well problems keep getting bigger and bigger, and if we return home (which is a possibility) I'm screwed. And I'm talking about the larger picture here, the future. Since the education system in my country is really hard, I would have to start from 1st year of high school, that means, I'm two years after my own generation, and that, my friends is completely unacceptable. Can't be done. So... I'm about to see my life go to waste. 'cause of what? Well... 'cause of bad decisions, bad parenting and more importantly OTHER PEOPLE'S STUPIDITY!
And I know bitching here doesn't help. But I'll feel better. And I hope you others will realize there are much worse things than being ugly or unpopular. Peace out!

Don't you just hate it when nothing quite goes the way that you've planned it. For years having the idea of exactly how you're gonna live your life and what you're gonna do to attain it. Oh no, you can't do it beacuse of one stupid little thing. FAIR ENOUGH. Go to your backup plan. Oh wait no sorry! The government has basically just said "screw you" and destroyed your backup plan.
Ok.... what do i do now?
Life sucks when you're lost and havn't got a clue how to be found again

My life was a joke. I was born with some special conditions that made me a weakling, my body is abnormal and i look like a f**king retard. I can't even have a normal life. Its almost 30 years now and i am still single.
Normal and happy peoples used to said that there is a reason god made u this way, god have a plan for everyone. Well i said f**k u and your god. I don't like this joke that god is trying to play with me.
SO, the almighty god can have all the fun playing jokes on me, but it won't be long, till i will be seeing him. I think it will probably be another few more years for god to made amend and fix what f**king shit he have done to me. if not, by the time i am seeing him in heaven, i am so pissed, i probably clubbed the damm god with whatever thing that i can grab on. it will either be in heaven or hell, i dun care..!
my life is hell afterall
THAT IS, IF GOD EXISTS!!! if not, then hallelujah, by the time i am dead, i am probably free from this pathetic thing call LIFE

Im not English so please forgive me for my grammar. Im a 16 year old boy. My parents and I had to move from Hungary to London 10 months ago because of financial problems. I had to leave all my friends and family. Since that I got in to a pretty good school. Sometimes I go to work to get some money for my parents. In school I dont have friends because Im the only male in the class. In the school most of the people are black and to be honest they dont really like the depressed white boy who always sits alone in the corner of the canteen. My old friends forgot me and they dont really care about how alone I feel so I lost the connection with them. All I have are my parents who I dont fell comfortable to tell how I feel. All day Im sitting in front of my monitor checking websites about sadness and listening the sound of silence. I dont want to be that kind of man who sits home alone, but I feel trapped and worthless. I pray almost every night for some help for my parents but it looks that God doesnt love me. Please tell me if it's me who cant fit into this world, or my life really sucks? please leave comments even if they are bad.

I moved to New Zealand almost 4 years ago, I left evrything and everyone I loved behind and now I hate every day that goes by, My mum and dad never gave me any choice in moving here and as much as I would love to hate them I just dont, I hate myself and I hate the whole damned country. I miss my only friend, and I miss my other family....sometimes I just can stand to be near people and when they ask me whats wrong I feel like I might just throw something at them, I'm 20 years old, don't have a job and not sure I want one when I'm stuck here. I don't think about my future like I used to now I just try and go through each day without thinking too much about how much I miss Scotland and my best friend (and only friend). I hate everything to do with my life and I just wish I could turn back the clock to the time my parents decided to move here and make a bigger issue out of my not wanting to move....

Life sucks. I'm only thirteen and been diagnosed with a disease which causes this horrible "odor". It's ruining my social life and what's worse is that my family doesn't believe me. Appearantly, (as the doctor told me) that their nose got "used to" the smell, somewhat like walking into a house that smells and getting used to it afterwards. I begged for a year to go to the doctor and the thought I was psycho. So finally I went to the doctors. The doctor truely did smell the horrible odor and told me to take a blood test. My parents refused and said "the doctors just want our money, so shes making up a lie." My parents are abusive and tried to kick me out of the house several times. Bruises on my face. I try to hide from everyone everyday and when I get home I try to hide from my abusive dad. A little piece of wrapper on the floor would equal to an hour lesson on how they have to deal with us and a big bruise on my face with a red hand mark. I wish I can go to adoption, but who would adopt me for this mysterious odor? I'm stuck.I've been so depressed that I can't focus anymore, my head hurts in school. Slit my throat and let me die now.

Life is so unfair! Both my parents died 5 years ago. I got a job, and started college. But now I am still at my dead end job, my associates degree isn't getting me nowhere. I live with my greedy, leeching brother. And to top it off I met the most awesome guy ever. We hit it off and dated. I was finally happy, and then he died. He died!! My God, he died 2 months ago. The only good thing in my messed up life, gone forever in a blink of an eye. Life not only sucks, it's incredibly cruel and evil!!!!!!!

My name is Antoine and I am 16. I moved from Vietnam to Detroit with my parents when I was only a baby. Life was pretty okay until my mother lost her job in 2006. And ever since then, my life has been going downhill. I am gay and my parents hate me for it. I've tried being straight but I can't. This is how I am! In late 2008 my Father left me and my mother with no money. I don't know where he is but my mother tells me that he has been cheating on her ever since they married. Now we are desperately poor. My mother occasionally prostitutes to make money and she thinks I don't know. I never asks her where she gets her money from because I don't want her to know that I know. At school almost everyone makes fun of me. I am the only asian kid and everyone else is black. Everyone knows that I am gay also. But what they don't know is that I have been sucking dick and letting other men have sex with me anally for money since I was 15. The world sucks and this is what I have to do to survive.

Hi my name is Ahmed and I just want everybody in here to know how much of a worthless and useless life I have. When I was eight or six years old I had no friends, my family hated me, I was wiped every and each night, I stunk, I was short, ugly, the laughing stock for both my family, their friends, and the school. When I was at Egypt I had nothing to lose because I owned nothing, I was poor and ugly and nobody liked me not even my family. My mom always gave money,gifts, and cloth to my brother and two sisters and made fun of me. I only had two pair of shirts and one pants and I was always embarrassed in school because kids made fun of my pants that I wore everyday. My mom didn't feed me or even wash my cloth and she always yelled when i drank water or even took showers complaining that I was wasting electricity. My family went out most of the nights to have dinner or visit their friends and I had to stay home and draw, she didn't let me turn on the t.v. because she though I was ignorant and stupid and I might break it. My brother and dad always made fun of the way I looked and called me names and they would pile me every night whipping me with belt or hitting me with shoe laughing at me. I had no friends at school and I had to stand alone during lunch outside without food because my mom didn't give me money, I was the only one standing outside and kids would pass by with their friend's pointing their fingers at me and laughing at me. In class kids would always laugh at ...
