Something difficult about your "lot in life" and how you're working to overcome it
Well, the most difficult one is not having my mom around anymore. She died in November 2010, and it has been really hard on me.
We didn't have the best relationship, but I still loved her (and still do). She was my mom, and will always be my mom, no matter where she is.
Things have gotten better over the past year or so, but I just do not like not having mom around. I miss her very much, and wish she was still here.
