Okay. I’m going through a really jarring and unstable time right now, and honestly everyday is a struggle to not just break down and lose my mind. My family is flat broke and my financial safety net is gone right out from beneath me, meaning I have to move out of my apartment. The positive side is I have places to go, but I’m still leaving this apartment. My space and comfort that I’ve lived in for 4 years now and it feels like my home.
Everything is sort of falling apart in general, and it has been all year. It’s ridiculous. I’ve withdrawn from my friend group because of school and work, and of course I feel lonelier than I ever have. I feel alienated and disconnected, and trapped in a lifestyle that I really don’t want to live in, so I feel I’m just wasting my time until better opportunities come, but I’m really sick of waiting.
