Take a big, deep breath. Now, relax!
I understand life has handed you a few (or many) bad apples. That's ok, it should upset you when things don't go your way. It's only natural to
have a negative reaction to a negative experience, and it shouldn't be any other way!
But you really have to learn to put things into perspective. Life isn't ALL bad, because there are always good things about it! Separate the bad from
the good, and don't let the bad affect the good!
Try and just spend a few minutes every day thinking about the good things you have. I know, it's tough, but in time you will learn to appreciate it.
Just think, you can see, you can read and write! You are still young, with lots of opportunites! I know, it sounds stupid, but when you think of all
the people in the world who don't have those things, you will really appreciate what you do have.
And for the record, I don't have a laptop, either. I wouldn't be able to afford something like that for years down the road. But hey! I've still
got my good old regular PC! I don't have an I-pod, but I can still listen to music on my walkman! And VCRs play movies just fine, screw dvd players!
