A Tragic Life in the U.S.A.

Updated on April 2, 2016

Healing From a Tragedy

This is the story of Heather's tragic life. She had hope and dreams for a nice future in the US, but her life was always shattered and destroyed from one tragedy after another that went on for many years. Nothing in her whole life ever worked out right for a long time. She never saw much Kindness.

Life Is About:

Life is about who you love and who you hurt.

It's about who you make happy or unhappy purposefully.

It's about keeping or betraying trust.

True Story

This is a true life story written by me but all names have been changed. If you are going through a tragedy, you might need to get some help to heal it.


First Tragedy

Heather had known Fred all of her life. When she was eighteen years old, they started a love relationship. He was a few years older than Heather.

Two years later, Fred cheated on her with Carol. But he did not just simply cheat, she got pregnant and since they were expecting a baby, he decided that he had to marry Carol. They got married and Fred always complained that it was too hard to deal with. That is a very good reason not to cheat on someone.

It was the worst thing that Heather had ever been through. She was devasted. She did not deserve it. But that was only the beginning of the tragedies that were to come for Heather.

Two and Three

Heather had lived on a farm all of her life. The farm and their neighbors farms close to them were all owned by and rented from a Catholic school that was supposed to be religious and care about people and help them.

But the Catholic school put greed for money above caring about people and they wanted to buy too many of the newest fanciest computers that they could find and keep a lot of money to replace all of them every few months. They decided to get the money for it by hurting everyone that had farms. They sold all of the farms to a big company from another city that was just as greedy. They threw everyone out of their homes and destroyed all of the farms to build apartments there.

So right after Fred left her, Heather and her family, and her best friends all lost their farms. Because of it, Heather never got to see her best friends again and she had three tragedies at the same time.

Four and Five

At the same time, Heather was working on her career, trying to invent something to help hundreds or thousands of people be safer and stay alive longer.

But she needed her best friend to help her with it, and when they lost their farms and Heather lost her best friend, that got destroyed along with everything else.

She asked somebody else that she had known and trusted for several years to help her with it, but he went criminally insane and attacked her and other people and falsely accused her of things that she did not do and he completely destroyed her career.

Lost Everything

Then Heather had five tragedies all at the same time. She had just lost the love of her life, her farm, her best friends, her career, and she had been attacked just for trying to invent something important for many people.

But she did not give up. She thought that had to be the end of the tragedies and that there could still be hope, new dreams, and a nice future.

She tried to make it into something good and help other people that had been through tragedies.

More Tragedies

As a few years passed by, Heather began to heal from the tragedies, but she still did not have anything good in her life to replace anything that was taken away until she met one of her soul mates, Toby. She really wanted this to work out right.

She finally saw some good in the first tragedy. If she would have stayed with Fred, she never would have gotten the chance to see how much better Toby was.

But just like everything else, this was not about to work out right either. Heather and Toby got into a misunderstanding. She tried to fix it because she did not ever want to hurt him.

But Maria, a racist woman that Heather knew, wanted to cause a lot of trouble for no good reason. Maria screamed that Heather did not want to go near Toby or ever see him again right when she was trying to fix their misunderstanding. He left for good and then Maria drove her car on the sidewalk and tried to run over Heather several times but she survived.

Their relationship did not have a chance after what Maria did and Toby moved to another state and they never spoke to each other again.

This time it was too much pain for Heather to bear. She gave up on life and realized that there was no hope, no chance for any of her dreams to ever come true, and no future.

Some Hope After All

Heather is still alive but just gave up on everything. There is some better news now. The man that went insane and destroyed her career is no longer alive and will never be able to hurt anyone ever again. With the way things currently are in the world, there is a huge demand and need for more people to do that career. Maybe she will go back and give it another try with nothing in her way. She did find a job with a coworker that became a close friend.


A Better Life in Russia

Two years ago, Heather found the real true other half of her soul in Russia, the country that has the good moral and family values that are mostly long gone in the U.S.A. It is the country that her ancestors came from. All of the pain and tragedies that had bothered her for years finally came to an end. She found complete happiness in a man that knows what true love is and doesn't just use someone and throw them away when it no longer feels good. Now there really is a chance for hope and beautiful dreams for a wonderful future in a much better place.

      This really is a sad story, it sounds like she tried to heal, tried to be positive and move on from her tragedies, then after all of that she gave up. I feel the sadness in her life, this is such a shame.

      Your telling of Heather's story made me sad, but I feel it is unfinished. The last line about her speaks of her loss of belief that life was worth living. I would be interested in knowing - did this young lady, in fact, commit suicide? I gave your lens 5*.
