    Well, I’ve been through with very harsh happenings in last 2 years.

    I’m not the person I used to be anymore and it’s too hard to take. It feels like you get taller in someway and you always forget about it then hit head constantly. I used to be very ambitious and self-confident. I used to feel like I was able to deal with the rest of the world. I was stubborn and when I decide something I would make it happen soon or late.

    2 years ago my family got into very serious financial problems. I was told that it won’t take too much time to turn back to our normal lives. I had to leave school because even I found a job I couldn’t have paid it. It was the year I passed some exchange program exams. I was so determined about studying abroad and had a passion with art. I created a portfolio in 2 months and applied to an art school in Europe. I got accepted but couldn’t get a scholarship or aid because my family has some properties that they can’t even sell due to economical crisis. Now, I decided to study in an art institute in my own country and pass to a 4 year university after 2 years and take my chance once again on studying abroad.

    But the problem is I lost my ability to bring my targets into action. All I need to do is right now to study a very easy test and I can’t even do that. In last 1 year I tried lots of things I might like. I used to spend hours on my paintings, I hardly draw anything at all. I tried to do scrapbooking but got bored as hell. I wasn’t like this and I hate myself for being like this. I want to do something while I have hell of a free time.

    My boyfriend supports all my desicions and has trust in me and my projects. He’s so supportive, loving and caring. He likes seeing people busy with things, creating and working. He even appreciates unworthy people just because they have a belief in their activites. But I can’t get joy from anything, even the things I like doing most.

    What can I do? I miss my old self very much and I’m sure if my boyfriend has known real me, he would love me more. Everytime I decide to do something and he supports me then I get bored and he asks me how is my project going, I tell him the reasons that it’s not going so well and I hate myself more. There were lots of things that I dreamed to do when I have free time, while I was too busy at school. Now, I’m stuck in my family problems and so unhappy to make those dreams real or anything else. It’s killing me.. How shall I move on while problems remains unsolved and I have no power on them to solve them?
    Guys, thanks for all answers so far but for the record, I’m not living in the dream world. No student loans here, no variety of jobs for students either. In other words, cash is king in here. So I’m not putting “excuses” they are reasons of happenings. I achieved lots of things but without money, they’re useless. And that caused me lack of self-confident and courage. Plus, I do not have to make a choice between my bf and my education. He’s supportive and I feel myself bad when I ruin everything after all his patience and support with me, that’s it..

    And, thanks a lot RuthAnn I’ll try to go parks and take a walk.

    I love scrap booking and recently I’ve seen some pages where instead of pictures people use dolls that are personalized to look like them or who ever the page is about. The dolls are about the height of a scrap book page and I would like to try this for my next page. Any ideas,books or websites that will help ?
