Today's OPP is from Brandi:

Yi guys,
I'm a woman in my 30's and I feel like I can't get my life started. I've been through a lot and suffered a lot of emotional and physical pain. I still live with my parents and I was recently laid off so now I don't have a job to save money and get out of their house. I also have no friends to move in with because their lives have all worked out - they have boyfriends/husbands/their own homes and kids. I feel down every time I get invited over to their homes because I see all that they have (kids, husband to come home too, their own place). I feel like I have a life of a teenager - but I'm in my 30's. I spent lots of time sleeping or in my room alone on the internet these days. Why can't I just meet a man like all my friends have? What am I doing wrong? How do I get myself out of here?

What advice can you give Brandi?
