    Throughout my life I've had many set backs. Just the last 2 weeks alone has been nothing but unfortunate events involving a death of a close friend and receiving news of failing a drug test for a job with the city disqualifying me from employment (despite a 3+ year process involving a $200 investment toward it). Yes a clean slate can easily be whiped out for such pettiness. I digress that even though Im down and out at the moment, I feel within myself a strength that overcomes all obstacles. I have a strong soul that is bonded with something much more. Everything that I have to face in this reality seems small and for the most part silly. People set unrealistic standards all the time and dont really see the full spectrum. I believe this is why most of us cannot connect with one another. I dont follow religion as I have concluded that most of it is misleading. But there is definitely much more than what is set before our eyes. I take my loses and cherish all the things I gain from this life. But I do so in a state of numbness, not feeling the turbulance throughout the ride. Im sorry if this comes off as a tangent. Just have so much to get off my chest.

    Can't say much because you don't really give us much to work on. I can say that in my life, when I encounter someone whose life seems to be in constant chaos, especially the ones who feel like the world is against them, the reason for it is usually addiction. Addicts lie to themselves and direct their anger outward finding fault with everyone but themselves.

    Tell us why you failed your drug test for the job that involved "a 3+ year process involving a $200 investment toward it."
