Have you ever had numerous situations you just cant do anything about? It is very frustrating to see friends/relatives/loved ones going though various stages of some sort of turmoil and there is nothing you can do about it.
1. My brother got divorced 3 years ago and to this day he wallows in self pity and refuses to move on. He is extremely bitter and curses God for his situation.
2. My mom is getting older and has a number of medical issues that pretty much keeps her a shut-in. Her oldest son(my brother) passed away last year and I truly think she has lost her desire for life since he passed away.
3. My mother in law is in bad shape and my wife and her sister are doing everything they can to keep the woman at home while a third sister lives 15 minutes from here and doesn't even call to check on her while my wife works 40 hours a week,has 2 teenagers to chase around and in between all that take her mom to kidney dialysis 3 times a week.
4. A coworker just found out she has cancer and on and on and on...
