Do you ever just wonder why does life treat you the way it does? Well, I ask myself that question like every other day. I just feel like life hasn't treated me right at all well in most things.

And then my mom, she continued to deal with with his things and would tell me negative things about my dad like “he is a bad father,” “he doesn't care about you,” “all he cares about is his alcohol,” “i'm never going to go back to him,” “don't talk to him, he isn't good for you.” Because of all those word she would tell me, I wouldn’t talk to my dad, and feel sympathy for my mom.

I want to give the world an amazing and cheerful impression of
