TODAY I LEARNED: Someone dies of suicide about every 13 minutes.
I know, that little fact is a depressing start to a blog post…or any post, really. It’s a fact that appealed to me while I was searching for a few things online today. It truly breaks my heart that so many people commit suicide every single day. I’ve had my fair share of struggles and anyone who says it’s not a rough road obviously never had to suffer through it. Sometimes people lose the fight…that’s just how it is. So, why did I start this blog post with a depressing fact? To be honest, I’m not sure. I’m feeling pretty down today. There’s been a lot on my mind…
Don’t worry yourself, I’m not committing suicide. I just tend to drift towards the more depressing topics when I’m down and blue. I’m handling the depression rather well lately. It’s harder on days with lots of pressure, but I muddle through it. I’ve been thinking a lot about my book and how it needs to get published. It’s edited and good to go…but the matter of getting it out there is an entirely different beast to conquer. I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it.
Lately I feel like depression runs through my bones. Sometimes it aches and sometimes it doesn’t. There’s no real way to describe it. In all truth, it’s just something that must be felt, and I pray if you’ve never felt it, that you never have to. I’m going to end this post with a couple questions. Do you ever feel like you can’t keep going? Does it ever feel like it’s just too much?
Blessed Be )O(
