Bit of a sob story here but everyone close to me has their own shit to deal with so I don't want to vent to any of them about how trapped I feel so here goes. 2 of my best friends from college got rejected to go through to second year of our course today, one of whom has a door-to-door sales job that crushes him, another of my closest friends got dumped by his girlfriend last week and hasn't taken it well at all, my closest gf is training to work in a bank and is sobbing over texts to me right now because she thinks she's the dumbest person there (which couldn't possibly be true), my sister lives in Spain working as an air-hostess where she is abused and practically spat at everyday by customers, she wants to come home but she can't live in our house anymore because of an incident with my mams husband and she has an apartment there with a bf and a dog so she feels limited in terms of travelling. The issue with my sister and step-dad is obviously upsetting my mam who is prone to depression and random crying anyway. My brother isn't happy living in Australia anymore, as an Irishman he gets threatened and bullied all the time and often has trouble finding work because of it. Finally add that my dad is dying of alcoholism so I don't talk to him and then that's literally every person in my life except the local shopkeeper.
So I've got quite the perfect storm of shit in my life at the moment and it's bringing me down, making me feel surrounded, like I can't talk to anyone, except a group of strangers in a forum. Although maybe you aren't a bunch of strangers in a forum, maybe you're the GB duders who will say something dumb and ridiculous to make me feel better.
I do apologize if that was all a bit pathetic.
PS. I do have this one friend who got good news recently and is moving to NY with his wife and kid to start up a new position at his company ;)
