Heads up, this is gonna sound like a whiny post.

I am getting evicted, slowing losing my girlfriend of 2 years, recently dropped out of school, pulling an average of 45 hrs per work week, having problems with band and family stuff, and in general losing my mind.

Now I just lost my cat of 10 years to cancer.

I have no idea how to cope.

How do you guys do so?

Cry a lot and eventually move on with your life and try not to repeat the same mistakes again which caused the grief, if they're within your control. It gets better eventually before it turns to shit again and then keeps cycling that way for the rest of your life. I guess you're supposed to get more used to it as you get older but I haven't found that to be the case honestly.

I'm sorry that your life is shitty right now but it will get better. It can't stay shitty forever.

Honestly, it does sound like you're a sucky part of life right now. Keep your chin up; it gets better.

You have to live life. I had a bad time 6 months ago, but everything ends.

Hang in there, life sucks sometimes but usually has a way of figuring itself out when the time is right.

take a breather, try to get a little less hours. working and being a student at the same time sucks, especially with so many hours. Band issues? go solo, honestly ive written three albums worth of material since my last band broke up, just keep pushing it out. The cat thing, idk what to say, I just lost one a few months ago myself, but i had 3 more. People told me to get a new baby kitten after, you may want tot ry that.

You win.

Cry a lot and eventually move on with your life and try not to repeat the same mistakes again which caused the grief, if they're within your control. It gets better eventually before it turns to shit again and then keeps cycling that way for the rest of your life. I guess you're supposed to get more used to it as you get older but I haven't found that to be the case honestly.

I'd hope that you're right. It feels like forever right now though.

if you know you're losing your girlfriend, why don't you do something about it?

Things will get better, I promise you. I think at certain points in life, you're presented with trying times just to show you that you're stronger than you perceive. I went through very rough times for the last eight months, and things are only now settling down, and I've never felt better. Life goes on, whether you want it to or not. Just keep busting your ass in every area and things will work out the way they're supposed to, even if you don't see that at first.
