Feeling Helpless by shock777 Feeling Helpless by shock777
Sometimes I feel quite helpless and out of control of my life. Things have gotten better recently, and yet there is always the temptation to only zero-in on the negative things. I want to be a positive, life-speaking person. It's easy to encourage others...but when I try to encourage myself, it's like i disdain and hate doing it. I don't understand how come it's so hard to hear God's voice for myself, and yet I can always speak life into others. Does it have to do with confidence in myself? Self-esteem? I don't know. I was just reminded of how broken I truly am..But it's okay because God's grace covers me...And yet, I still worry? 

Sigh. Some vent art here ;v; I know I'm not alone in this feeling. XD; Things will get better...I'm just worried about what I'm doing...Adult life sucks...And I don't know how to do it and I feel all alone ;C I want God to be my hope instead of my finances and living situations. It's just hard to hold onto that...

Wow. You just summed up my entire weekend.
There were some things that I REEEEEALLY wanted to accomplish on my own today, y'know to prove that I could branch out on my own.
But last minute things and deadlines for future school and work keep piling up, and I was forced to make a bunch of decisions that made me feel like a slave to my own system.
It sucked really bad. :'(
After spending the entirety of yesterday feeling awful about it all, I finally decided to toughen through, and accomplish a large amount of it all. And you know what happened?
I finally got out of the house :D The weather here is PERFECT, and I drove 150 (beautiful country) miles with my brother and his friends to go see their teen choir concert. (which by the way is REALLY good)

About that loneliness. Now that you're on your own, you're a greater target for Satan. He knows what worries you, he knows what causes you to stumble, and worst of all, he knows how to take something that God has provided and have it make you feel miserable.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE, ALEX SHOCK!!! You have us DA fans/friends. We just happen to be going through the exact same stuff.
Finances, housing, grudges, worries, etc. These are all just earthly and temporal things.
But relationships with friends and a God who loves you are EVERLASTING.
Hold on tightly to those as you continue to press on, and you'll never have to want again. :) :) :)

This fits for me right now :,C

I hate worries and family fights, they really really......They are just bad :(

Oh, beautiful :D

Sometimes, at night, I tend to feel pretty lonely.  This mind sound sissy-ish (don't judge me), but I would ask God to comfort me or something like that.  Sometimes after praying that, I would feel like when I used to snuggle with my mother when I was a kid. :)
