I, too, have a life like that. Been betrayed by 11 women in my life -- 9 of them cheated on me -- they all told me, that's how I know. Three of them I was deeply in love with and got my heart torn out and stomped into mush every time. I was born into this world without a father, never had a father growing up, no siblings either -- was a latch-key kid with a single working mother, so it was beyond torture the loneliness I endured while growing up. Went to 9 different schools, and moved 21 times before I was 17 years old, so really couldn't make any lasting friends, either. My family is poor -- never had a brand new car in this family of mine. Always been part of the working poor in my adult years (I'm 50 now), although I was an honorably discharged junior NCO when I got out of service. Worked in over 50 different places in the twenty someodd years since then, because after getting out I became a Seventh-day Adventist, and every single employer I went to for 15 years told me that I didn't work Saturdays, I couldn't work there -- denying me my basic right to religious liberty here in the land of the free that I gave the primest years of my life to serve and protect. I've also been part of the hidden homeless on several occasions in my life of being one of the working poor. I'm in my third marriage now, and this wife doesn't lift a finger to do a single thing for me or us, at all, ever, except maybe once every six months -- and this has been going on now for 8 years. So I have to do all the cooking, cleaning, laundry and take care of her cats for her. I'm treated more like a servant than a husband...... Yet, all that said, after I've surrendered my life to the Lord 12 years ago, my life has gotten better, somewhat, and am now honored to be serving as an adult Sabbath School teacher, an elder for my local church, and lead Tuesday night Bible studies also. But one thing I did that seems to be coming to fruition in my life, is study the Bible since I was 19. And yes, it all happens for a reason, although we may never be privy to that information in this lifetime. But God has a plan, rest assured.
