....and just give up??? At what point do the stresses become to much to handle and you just say "fuck it" and throw in the towel. The past 5 years of my life have been nothing but a constant battle to try to succeed, but i jsut keep sliding farther down the hill towards failure. I have done everything scociety says i should to be "successful" and i have done them well. So why is my life situation horrible and appear to be destined for failure?
