Hey, I aint been on in a while and i'm back to get some help, I don't know what to do with my life. I will describe how my lifes going. Basically my life turned shit when my mum died from cancer a few years ago. She left behind me, 2 brothers, a sister and my dad. She was a cracking women and a fantastic mother. My dad has never coped, he has continuously recieved help from social workers and family, but he loves his drink. The house has been in some shocking conditions over the years. My main objective in life is my 5-year-old brother, I love him so much and he means everything to me. I treat him whenever I can, taking him to the soccer at any chance. The family side of my life has improved alot recently, but I need help with my personal side. I have a small part-time job to keep me going, but its not steady. My social life is terrible, i've not had a girlfreind in years and only go out when I go to the soccer, my relatives, work, or the shops. I have about 1 outfit which I wear all the time and not really enough money to go and buy clothes. Thing that annoys me is, I look decent, you would never know from lookign at me that I don't have a social life at all. I don't know what to do with my career, I recently wrote to local soccer clubs asking about coming along for trials or something but have not recieved an answer from any of them.Any useful advice would be appreciated.
What to do?
Sorry to hear about your loss. You seem to be a caring, responsible guy, and your lil brother is lucky to have you.Just keep your head high. What you're doing is very honorable, and even if your dad drinks too much, that might just be the only way he knows how to cope with the loss. It takes a stronger mind to do it sober, so I hope you stay focused on your health so you can be there for your brother. Try volunteering, for a soccer club, or whatever, just to get your foot in the door. They usually look for volunteers who have a passion for the sport. Good luck to you.
