Stressed Out To The Max
I am so stressed out today. It’s my daughters 18th tomorrow and I have a serious lack of funds issue thanks to the stupid car. I’m not going to go into too much detail otherwise I will get even more stressed. Sometimes I get so fed up with being a one parent family I’ve been doing it forever and the pressure and stress are relentless.
My mum was a single parent for a while but it never seemed to be as difficult as it is these days. There was no such thing back then as food banks. Last night there was a tv advert for a charity that provides sanitary products to keep teenage girls at schools. What has this fucking world come to where more than a third of this population in this country can’t even afford essential items like food and sanitary products.
They wonder why the suicide numbers are increasing so drastically. The people suffering from stress and depression because of the constant struggle that we seem to be facing day in and day out. I know I’ve had enough of it. I’ve seriously had enough of it. There just seems to be no way out.
My life feels as if it has been a constant 3 steps forward and 10 back. I’ve been saving for ages for this birthday and every single penny has gone because of a car. Will my daughter understand this? No, she won’t because they don’t have a clue of the pressures you are under every single day.
Lessons Of Life
They should teach kids at school about money and about the cost of living and what is involved because they are so fucking naive. Most kids think that life is easy when it is the complete opposite for most of us. They should teach them about bank accounts, about budgeting, buying and renting, household bills and ultimately the cost of living in this day and age.
Our Government Needs To Wake The Fuck Up
Not everyone is born with a silver spoon in their mouths and it is about time the politicians started getting off of their backsides and do something about the real world that we are living in. People taking their own lives because they can’t go one for one more day.
There was a video circulating last week on Facebook of an MP asleep in parliament. Probably because he had just had his massive lunch and a couple glasses of wine and was sleeping it off before he goes back to his second home in London.
Fucking open your eyes – it is 2018 people shouldn’t be living on the streets in this country. Ambulances are getting called out more and more for cases that should be dealt with by other services in the community. People suffering from mental heal issues are not getting the help they need because it is not available.
If you are watching the current series called Prison which is situated in Durham. Last weeks episode told us that out of the 900 inmates 600 of them have mental health problems. One inmate that they featured last week ended up taking his own life before they could find him a suitable bed and safe environment for him. Is that what it has come to? No hospital beds or suitable places so I know let’s put them in prison. I wouldn’t be surprised if people keep getting themselves put into prison because they can’t afford any other kind of life. They wonder why people constantly turn to crime. Kids are dealing drugs because that is the easiest way for them to earn money.
Ridiculous Role Models
As for the Kim Kardashians of the world don’t get me fucking started. When it comes to teenagers now aspiring to be a celebrity or married to a footballer you know the world is fucked up. They are growing up with no real values. They live in a virtual world. This virtual world not only affects their health but their emotional well being when they don’t live up to the incorrect expectations they have learnt from these ignorant soulless plastic individuals. Kids today don’t have a clue what a real life is all about and whose fault is it? It’s every single person’s fault. We are all guilty of this and it is time we made a change to what is acceptable and not.
Girls as young as 18 are now having botox and fillers and breast implants. This is because the press and social media have created an image that isn’t real and not attainable. Girls are under so much pressure and unhealthy pressure to look a certain way. I’ve been watching Love Island and I was horrified to see the girls with the fake lips and tits and barbie doll figures. Where are the real girls? I dread to think where it will go in the future I really do!
Life Today Is Just Too Stressful
Wow glad I got that off my chest lol. I don’t vent very often but as I said I am stressed to the max today and had to do it.
Right now I need to get ready as I am catching up with an old friend tonight and we are going to a place that teaches you meditation and stuff. It’s come at the right time so will let you know how that goes tomorrow.
Until then I hope you are having a better day than I am.
