Chances are that if you found this post, you are not happy with things. Maybe your job sucks, maybe your your home life sucks, maybe the relationship you are in sucks. Or maybe your life actually does suck!
I can speak from first hand experience when I say that life can suck, but it doesn’t have to. There is no doubt that life can be hard and often overly complicated. That’s normal. What’s not normal is thinking that there is no way out. When you’re knee deep in shit in your life, it may seem like there is little to look forward to.
