    Hi TZ,

    I feel your pain !

    Please know everything happens for a reason and the Universe probably saved you from a worse situation happening down the road.

    I pray someone better comes along for you soon !

    Listen to this song by Josh Groban called Don’t Give Up – it gave me hope when I had none. Here is the youtube link:

    GOD bless !

    Hi Lucy,

    Everyone has a purpose !

    You are going through a period of life when we feel lost and directionless – it happens around middle age to most people and earlier to some but it is only a phase and will pass.

    It is the Universe’s way of getting us to rethink/change our direction in life. You need to go within and figure that out.

    May GOD’s grace guide you !

    Hi Kaelyn,

    You have 2 choices at this point:

    1) Stay with your bf and hope for the best.
    2) Leave.

    Odds are it is going to be an uphill battle for your boyfriend to stay sober ! You need to figure out if you can live without him OR live with him being an alcoholic.

    May GOD’s grace guide you !

    Hi Suze,

    There is nothing wrong with having kids late in life.

    However, to be blunt, kids are a lot of work and you have other major issues including depression, addictions, and you not being sure if you love your bf.

    Please consider this scenario for a minute: You are a couple years into the future and you have a baby. Unfortunately, you have developed Post Partum Depression and your husband/bf cannot handle the pressure and is leaving you. Would you have the resources to cope under such circumstances? If the answer is Yes, go ahead and have the baby. If not, please DON’T !

    Sorry to play devil’s advocate but this is a real life scenario that occurs often and ends up devastating lives.

    GOD Bless !

    Hi Sarah,

    I am sorry you are going through so much at such a young age !

    You have done more than most people would do in your shoes !!

    Sometimes in life, bad things comes our way at one time when we least expect it. The key is not to panic – panic will only make a bad situation worse.

    In addition to Suze and Jasmine’s good advice above, I would suggest take care of yourself physically so that you don’t crash and burn. A simple first step is to eat right and get enough rest/sleep.

    If you can’t meditate, just close your eyes even for a few minutes every day and think of something good – anything – even a song. Here is the youtube link to one I love – it is called ‘Hands’ by Jewel:

    GOD bless !

    Hi Sharron,

    Sometimes, events that happened early on in our lives continue to haunt us.

    Even though it is difficult, you cannot give those bad events power to control your future !

    If you believe in Karma, those who do wrong always pay for it – in this life or beyond.

    If not, here is Romans 12:19:
    “Avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, said the Lord”

    I hope you find peace and move forward.

    GOD Bless !

    Hi Patricia,

    Pets are our Angels on earth !

    I understand how difficult it is for you since I have a cat that is my ‘baby’ !

    Please know pets are like human souls who cross over but still watch over us in spirit – that is why you can still feel them around !

    I pray your heart heals soon.

    GOD bless !

    Hi CM,

    Most times, bad events come out of the blue and surprise us !

    To add to the suggestions above:

    1) Meditation can be difficult when the mind is not calm – so try any form of physical activity. Walking outdoors works best for me. Even 15-20 minutes a day can make a world of difference in reducing anxiety/depression and help clear your mind.

    2) Listen to this one song by Sarah Brightman called ‘Moment of Peace’ – it brings me peace in turbulent times. Here is the youtube link:

    GOD Bless !

    Hi Tulips,

    You going through normal processes of the early stages of recovery.

    All the emotions repressed in the past come out and sometimes uncontrollably – it is your mind ‘giving up ghosts of the past’ so to speak !

    Please continue being strong – it gets much better !!

    Listen to this one song by Josh Groban – it gave me strength. Here is the youtube link:

    GOD Bless !

    Hi Hayley,

    I am sorry you are going through tough times at such a young age. You are a kind soul and deserve better !

    I pray your angels help you forward and suggest 2 things:

    1) Please try some form of physical activity to clear your mind – walking outdoors works best for me. Even 15-20 minutes a day will help in reducing depression/anxiety. Clearing your mind will bring forth options for positive steps in your life.

    Please keep looking forward – you have your entire life ahead of you and I promise you it will get better if you put in the effort !

    2) Listen to this one song by Josh Groban – it helped me and hope it helps you too! Here is the Youtube link:

    GOD Bless !

    Kelli,

    You are beating yourself up because you are basically a nice person !

    Losing control of your situation is making you act abnormally. Life’s problems will do that to almost everyone !!

    Following up on Moon’s post, please try to regain control of your life and take small steps towards fixing your it.

    And please don’t use alcohol/drugs as a way out.

    GOD Bless !

    Hi A,

    In my opinion, the root cause of Agoraphobia is either a distrust of other people or a lack of trust/confidence in oneself.

    Please go within and find out which one is more dominant in your case. Once you do, there are resources on this website and others that you can use.

    Just do me 2 small favors:

    1) DO NOT give up on yourself ! Life can be hard but ‘Darkness always gives way to Light’ – it may take longer than we thought but it always does !

    2) Listen to this one song by Seal – it helped me in tough times and hope it does for you too !. Here is the Youtube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TXsAtWbEoRU

    GOD Bless !

    Hi Lindsey,

    2 years is an achievement !

    As you may know, in recovery, the best way is to take it one day at a time – do not think about anything further than each day – everything will work out ! I have lived long enough to know that it does – the only thing you need to do is trust yourself !

    I pray angels guide you and keep you strong.

    Listen to this one song by Josh Groban called ‘Don’t give up’ – it gave me strength and hope it does the same for you – here is the youtube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EGLSk3AVcUU

    GOD Bless !

    Julie’s response tells you there are no set paths or guarantees in life – anything can happen at any time – good or bad !

    So, stop comparing yourself to others – some of us were meant to be different.

    Keep doing your best and trust in a Higher power.

    I pray angels will light your way forward.

    God bless !

    It is only human to want someone to love !

    I pray and hope you find her soon but in the mean time please take small steps to move on with life and rebuild your career.

    Listen to this song by Michael Buble called ‘Lost’ – it helped me – hope it works for you too. Here is the youtube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q-8ez6dGao8

    God bless !
