I'm 29 years old and I have no friends or a support system to lean on.  I work 40 hours a week and I'm in school full-time.  The stress level of both is getting out of control but I have to work to pay for school and I have to finish school so I can get a job paying more than minimum wage.  I'm in a relationship with a man that I think loves me but his teenage son keeps getting in the middle of everything and we never spend time together because our schedules rarely allow for it.  I feel like I'm going through life all alone in the dark.  I worry about everything (even things I can't control), I feel like everyone around me is lazy and selfish.  I feel so used and I'm just run down and tired but I don't have time to properly deal with things so they just keep piling up and I just keep pushing the problems deeper inside.  I'm afraid of failing, I'm afraid of commiting, I'm afraid of being assertive.  I can't seem to win no matter what I do.  I just don't feel like I can deal with life anymore.

A Collect for the Presence of Christ
Lord Jesus, stay with us, for evening is at hand and the day
is past; be our companion in the way, kindle our hearts, and
awaken hope, that we may know thee as thou art revealed in
Scripture and the breaking of bread. Grant this for the sake
of thy love. Amen.

I'm 28 years old. I've been fortunate in many ways. I was pushed to go to school, get through college, graduate school, and now I have a good job in a big city. My father was born in a really poor part of the world, and spent the first 31 years of his life working and going to school, often times having to get through famine and mass poverty to do so. I can't give you anything except a promise that if you keep your head up, and you get through each day, and improve your life just a teeny bit at a time, you will have the life you deserve. It takes a long time, but one day you'll have a kid, and he'll look up to you, and he'll thank you for everything that you did for him. You're going to be truly happy. Don't let anyone get in your way.

To still your anxious heart!!!! Hello my Friend:

Your feelings of fear, and inadequancy will steal your confidence, boldness and peace of mind. They are only keeping you from stepping into a higher graeter level of achievement. You are already seeking a higher place of success, you just need to relax and know that you have what it takes to conquer every challenge if you only use the greatest weapon on earth.......thats the Name of Jesus! Stop trying to do it all yourself give it to the destroyer of all negative situations. You will have that unshakeable confidence, boldness and assurance to do anything if you use the weapon that is right on the tip of your tongue. Stop trying to shoulder all your concerns and anxieties in your own strength.... you see how that has worked for you....instead cast it all on His shoulders they are as broad as this world. I trust He will help you get through it ALL! You have what it takes, just breathe, and He will give you the grace to overcome and become victorious. But you must recognize your help! Just like you are learning life skills to better your economic conditions. Learn of the One who is "carrying" you through school and watch how your relationships with your young man, his child and your life will be more peaceful, joyious and together. While you will gain a quiet powerful confidence! Don't just get the degree - get the Creator who bear All Good Gifts - get it ALL! Be blessed.

God' servant,

Dear to whom it concerns don't worry about what you can't control. For worrying will not help at all. When you feel you never have time for anything. Remember it is only temporary until you finish school then you will have more time as will only have a job rather then school and job. Also you and your boyfriend will have more time when your schooling finishes so keep reassuring each other of that. As well as when use are together try and keep it fun always so your boyfriend stays interested even though you don't have much time. I don't know if you believe in God but I do and when I worry about things I cant control I give them all to him and he deals with them. For nothing is to big for God to handle. You should try that. Please know to God loves all kinds of people as do I.

I am close to your age, and I can understand so much of what you talk about. My first reaction is that you need to get yourself to your doctor and tell them how you are feeling. Anyone going to school full-time, working full-time, and dealing with a relationship would be saddled with stress. I am not a psychiatrist, but I believe you have severe anxiety and depression. You are run down and need to take some time for yourself.

Have you and your partner discussed his child? I understand this is a difficult thing to do--incredibly sensitive! If his son is something you cannot cope with, it may be worth making this known. At the end of the day, you have to do what is best for you!
