Because I can’t be the mother, housewife and career woman I want to be.
Because my dad has cancer and he is getting more frail each day.
Because my mum left and I miss her every day.
Because although I love my job, I have aspirations I will probably never succeed.
Because I wish I was a better mother.
Because I am alone and can’t imagine ever finding love again.
Because I found an unbelievable connection with someone and I can’t understand why we can’t have a relationship.
Because my marriage failed.
Because I’m overweight and unfit and no matter what I do, that doesn’t seem to change.
Because I am so lucky and I havr absolutely no right to be miserable.
