Youcome home only to see things havent changed youfriends and family have only grown older. travel is give and take you come to the place you once loved with all your heart only to see the the town is now a city macdonalds, kfc aldi's big w, your mates , good mates are shooting up herion, everyone you know are on pillls smoking ice or otherwise lost in anever ending cycle of alcohol and drug abuse you blame youself for leaving. beacuase you think you could have helped but well i dont know what anyone can do.
Life is life

You're right - life is life - and we all have to accept it on its terms - not ours.

S**t happens - friends will turn to drugs, McDonalds will get bigger, you're car will break down, the bank manager is your friend one minute and chasing after you for money the next . . . This is life. And we live it day to day and accept that the universe doesn't always deal the hand that we want.

But that's the real beauty of it, isn't it?

life most certainly is life, but how you deal with it makes all the difference.

Grab it by the balls and shout "YEEEEHHHHAAAHHHHHH" in its face

Hello Jacaranda

I think u may be looking at life, through shit coloured spectacles.

Yeah I was looking through a shit coloured spectacle I was actually was looking through the bottom of a few beer glasses. Just had to vent some frustration somewhere, sometimes the best place to do that is among strangers because well they can criticise you but it's generally constructive and non-biased.

Cheers

Jacaranda,
Pick your bottom lip up and get on with your life. You aren't responsible for any one but yourself. The only one you have to make happy is yourself and you know you can do it. we all have bad days and think the world sucks and if you are a Polar Bear on a melting ice pack or a Brazillian monkey in a forest being destroyed you have reason to worry, otherwise, it is just a bad day and you know you will wake up soon in a great mood and forget what was getting you down in the first place.
Hey, I'm stuck in Bulgaria with no money and no access to cash, my credit card only works at random places and you don't see me getting down on life.
Life isn't life, life is what you make. So make it.
Caro
