Are you in debt? For close to a decade I was in debt and that was pushing me into depression and now i'm finally getting on my feet and looking to the future. Although you are right it's hard to find emotional support and find a relationship that is fulfilling on both ends.

I'm hanging in there but I've reluctantly accepted my fate. Nothing about my situation is going to change. This is it for me.

Hey, thanks for responding. That is extremely vague however. In my current journey I can assure you that I, much like you, am getting little support from my family structure. I am making stronger bonds with strangers and neighbors.

Nothing about my situation is going to change.

Brother, there is a quote about god “"If you don't feel as close to God as you used to, who moved?”

I am not a bible thumper in the slightest. I’ve only recently stepped foot inside one other than funerals. I also read a lot of philosophy and other literature.

If you have not read “The Prophet” I suggest you do so. Here is a link to the entire book and passages. http://www.katsandogz.com/gibran.html

Here is one passage, see if you like it.

On Joy and Sorrow Kahlil Gibran

Your joy is your sorrow unmasked. And the selfsame well from which your laughter rises was oftentimes filled with your tears.

And how else can it be? The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain. Is not the cup that holds your wine the very cup that was burned in the potter's oven? And is not the lute that soothes your spirit, the very wood that was hollowed with knives? When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy. When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.

Some of you say, "Joy is greater thar sorrow," and others say, "Nay, sorrow is the greater."

But I say unto you, they are inseparable. Together they come, and when one sits, alone with you at your board, remember that the other is asleep upon your bed.

Verily you are suspended like scales between your sorrow and your joy. Only when you are empty are you at standstill and balanced.

When the treasure-keeper lifts you to weigh his gold and his silver, needs must your joy or your sorrow rise or fall.

There are two subs here that I recommend you check out. Over at v/theredpill you will find great self help stuff for men like us. It’s also filled with great people and dedicated mods like @Native. They have push-up challenges, you name it. But it’s all meant to make you the most informed and strong male that you can be.

The second, which I recently found, is v/SelfHelpForABetterMe

There are people who care that you haven’t met yet. I was one of them. You’ve made the first step, go further!!!
