I stepped out of the world once upon a time. I withdrew because I realized that I was not coping well. The more I tried to get help from anyone the more they just expected me to just shut up and go away.
I stepped out of the world once upon a time. My health took a turn and I did not have the skills I needed to handle it and the rat race of life. I caused me great heart ache that I was suffering and very few people really cared.
In the grip of deep pain, we can’t see into situations as clearly as we normally do no matter how strong we think we are. When we are in pain, no matter the cause, we go into survival mode. We have to consciously focus on things that generally come easy to us.
Have faith in your own abilities, you were made for this. Perfection in form. Be grounded and in the moment. Take your skills and walk forward in life.
