Where is the Bright Side?

by Looking for the Upside....
(Hempstead)

I can't believe I am living this life. I thought because my mother was so loving and giving to everyone else, but me. They would be willing to be there for her. I have never seen people run so fast, including the members of her Seventh Day Adventist church.


I am frustrated because everything, financial, emotional, physical, health has taken a toll on me. I am concerned about my own future.

Healthcare providers view us as poor inner city residents, because as a middle class family, we don't have the means to be able to afford the help we need in the home.

The only thing people who don't want to help say is "God will Bless You". Where is the bright side? I don't think I am going to make it.

The Bright Side Is How YOU See It

The fact that you bothered to comment tells me ...YOU WILL MAKE IT!!!!! Sometimes we don't realize how strong we are until we're backed into a corner.

You do the best you can do and that's all you can do! If you know beyond a shadow of a doubt that you've done all you can do, then stop ...take a deep breath...regroup...then do what you have to do and don't look back.

We have a way of heaping condemnation on ourselves when we don't need to. Life is life, we have to accept it on it's terms, not ours!
