Friend Wendy,
I can agree with your situation and somewhat understand.
In my own case my four children are grown and we all get along.
So my time is spent reading and seeking more understanding.
One exercise that I find to be fun is to speculate about what we will be doing after our change and receiving assignments in the coming Kingdom of God on the earth.

To guide my thought I often use the Old Testament to observe how God worked with His chosen people and the processes that were illustrated. For example when Moses took the people out of Egypt and was wearing himself out answering questions from the thousands of people who came to him with problems, he was advised by his Father in law a former leader of his own people to delegate responsibility. You may find the story in Exodus 18:1-27
See also Exodus 2:11-22 for clarity.

Another might be the story of the Proverbs 31 woman. It is a good lesson for young men and women entering marriage and preparing to start a family. In fact it can be a guide for every age of person needing to mature.

Yes I have felt that way!  I know exactly how you are feeling.  That is where faith comes in.  We have to have faith that everything we are experiencing in this life is for good reason.  It makes me think of a scene from the movie Karate Kid.  If you haven't seen it,  in this movie, Daniel (the student) is being trained by a master (Mr. Miyagi) in karate.  Mr. Miyagi makes Daniel paint fences, houses, sand decks, wash and wax cars, nothing but tedious hard labor until Daniel loses it and lashes out at Mr. Miyagi because he feels he isn't learning anything that he isn't going anywhere.  Then Mr. Miyagi throws a bunch of punches and kicks at Daniel and he blocks them all using the various moves he learned while doing all that labor.  It's difficult to explain.  The videos does a much better job.

I like that analogy.  From the bible, Moses was a fugitive working for his father-in-law herding sheep until the Lord made him a shepherd of an even more stubborn two-legged variety.  We didn't put ourselves on the Potter's wheel and we can't remove ourselves from it either.  Life is full of "consequences" we did not intend.

Heb 10:32  But you must continue to remember those earlier days, how after you were enlightened you endured a hard and painful struggle.
