Had It All Now Have Nothing

Life sucks like a sucker. I had it all, a good IT job, loads of money, a beautiful wife, a small child. Now it has all gone basically. I have a shit job, cant pay mortgage and need to move out, wife has left me and taken kid, I lost all my money in failed business. Life sucks. It really does. It's ok when you start with nothing, but when you have it all and lose it all you are screwed. Sucks.

Well then get back up and work harder. In the end you will succeed. Hope I helped :)

Same thing happened to me. It's truly depressing. After living an upper middle class lifestyle that I worked hard for, I'm in poverty. Struggling with depression.I know the comment about work harder was meant well. But I haven't been able to even find a job after months of looking, interviewing, networking. I'm either overqualified or not qualified enough. So, even though I'm middle aged, I've decided I'm going to have to go back to school, and live with relatives until I get on my feet.This after having a a five bedroom home on almost an acre, and rental property to boot. Tough pill to swallow...Just know you're not alone

I can also relate. But at least you have your relatives to give you some stability. In my case, I can hardly afford the apartment I have, my landlord is a crazy nut who wants to kick me out for silly reasons, and after that I don't know where I'll go. In the meantime, I have depression and can't focus on my school work. This is compounded by the issues that my landlord keeps raising. (They don't like our plants on the veranda, they don't like our bikes, they want us to pay more rent, even though we always pay on time... they are always at the property, poking around... it's aweful.)

At least you have some peace in your life. I feel as though my peace has been ripped away from beneath my feet. All the while I am standing here in shock and disappointment, wondering why I made the decisions I did, and why someone or something couldn't stop me from my madness. It's devastating, especially because I know deep down inside that I could have prevented this huge loss. But I didn't. I instigated it. And now I'm paying dearly.

All I want is my peace once again. All of you who have peace in your life, be thankful for it. Hold on to it. Peace is a precious gift. If you have peace, you have a great life. Don't tamper with it. Be thankful. Think about me and these other poor chaps.

Sure you may not have everything materially. But if you have love and peace in your life, then believe me: You have a great life.

Thanks for writing this.. totally understand, it hurts more being high and falling than not knowing what you are missing at all, and there is a huge sadness inside, also you re-live again your mistakes, it happens to me also .. i live again and again the moment i took the bad decision and send everything to hell. But there must be a way out, guess you should look for people in a worst situation than yours, that would help you to be grateful.. and inner peace, what you said is totally truth. Good luck on your side, i'll try to came out of this also on my own.
By anonymous at 13,Mar,12 11:43

I know what you mean; I relive my mistakes every day. But we can't let it consume us. I always think about children who live in slums, or children who live with physical abuse every day of their lives. They have it hard, not me. I shouldn't be complaining. But it is still hard.

You can't give up. I just have to keep working hard, believing that I will have peace again one day. I'll get myself out of this hell-hole. And in the end I will be a champion. And I'll thank God.

I can relate to you guys. I came to this country 8 years ago. Before that I had what I thought was a high-end job back home. I remember the only job I could find here was call centre. My first boss in this country was a 19 years old kid.

I learnt to focus on reality and forget the past. From there I made few friends and moved to work in IT. In these past few years I got let go twice. The last one was just 5 weeks ago. I have been helping my buddy at a coffee shop doing part time ever since. I didn't give up. Treating it as another life lesson. I got an offer just yesterday for a senior manager role. You never know.

By anonymous at 30,Jul,11 10:50

Really? You think coming from nothing makes it easier? What a douche, honestly. There are children who will never even have the opportunity to have a fraction of what you had, despite their best efforts and good minds. Your life only sucks because you focus on what you had... The most important things in life aren't things. And your wife probably left you because you've allowed yourself to become caught up in what's gone rather than trying to fix it. And don't say you tried, because chances are that you probably didn't try very hard. Get a life

the bitch was a gold digger anyway thats why she split so fuck her as for you pick yourself up again it dont take money to be happy later brother

By anonymous at 05,Aug,11 19:17

Well...once you hit the rock bottom, there is no place to go but up! Sounds like you are there. Hope it works out for you!

Hang in there, be happy that you have family who really care about you and are willing to help. My family doesn't give a damn what happens to me. Once I graduated from college, they told me that I am going to have to sleep in a cardboard box and live on the side of the road before I ever come back to them for help. Basically, I was on my own for the rest of my life.

I look around and see other people getting all types of support and help from their families in these tough economic times. It just appalls me that my own family can be so cruel and petty. If you have a place to stay, food in your belly, and the love and support of family, then you are doing alright.

Crap happens, but thank god you have family to fall back on. Unfortunately, the folks like myself got dealt the wrong family and have to suffer the rest of our lives for it. Best of luck to you in these tough times.

By anonymous at 14,Jul,12 00:56

Poor, poor you.
There is always someone who has it better than you and always someone who has it worse. Fucking deal with it.

By anonymous at 03,Aug,12 03:10

Fuck ur wife if I was u I would find her and slap her in the face and beat the shit of o her new husband (if she has one) before ur child starts to call him dad instead of u and forgets U!!!!!!!

By anonymous at 07,Aug,12 15:48

I empathize. We lost everything because of fraud perpetrated by a large, well-known bank. Wehad worked hard for years and years. We got no help from anyone. We succeeded. Restarting at zero in our sixties is tough. I know the people in my life whom we love and who love us is the most important thing. But,you know, some days it is just a nightmare. We are surviving.

By anonymous at 01,Nov,12 02:31

Be thankful for what you had most people will never have .

By anonymous at 27,Nov,12 10:43

You gotta watch out for the golddiggers! I'm with one right now and I'm headin your way pal

By anonymous at 13,Dec,12 17:27

Everything happens for a reason. Hard times are intended to help us grow individually and spiritually. Don't take it personally-what doesn't kill you will make you stronger.

I can only say this from my own experience having risen and fallen many times-when you are at the bottom there is no place to go but up :)

keep your chin up!

By jueves at 03,Mar,13 20:13

I totally understand you.. I had it all once: a boyfriend i loved, future and wedding planning, my whole future seem bright ..but i manage to screw it all somehow.. it's been like this for 2 years already; now someone is around but still miss my ex so much, reality is that you cannot go back in time just learn from your mistakes and try to pick up the pieces and move on, 2 years from here won't be so bad, is not great but isn't it as bad, good luck :)

YPN14e Incredible! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It's on a completely different subject but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Great choice of colors!
