Is it possible to go through your life feeling merely an obligation to live, not an enjoyment of life? Or is spontaneous combustion inevitable at some point.

It's unfair that life can be so difficult, yet for some it can seem almost unbearable. I often feel one of those people, yes, unfortunate things have happened but people just expect you to pull yourself together and somehow 'deal with it' but simply you can't. Sadly it seems people who haven't felt the way I and maybe yourself have felt at times in our life can not truly understand the crippling pain life can bring.

I'm sorry I can't give a more positive outlook on the situation, but hopefully there is some comfort in the fact that you are not alone :hug:
