Life has moments that feel as if the sun has blackened to tar and the entire world turned to ice. ? It feels as if Hades rose from the depths of Tartarus with his vile demons solely for the purpose of gathering to personally torture you, and that their genuine intent of mental, emotional, and spiritual anguish is tearing you to shreds. ? Your heart weighs as heavily as leaden legs which you would drag yourself forward with if not for the quicksand that overcomes you, pulling you down inch by inch, paralyzing your will and threatening oblivion. ? And all the while fire and brimstone pour from the sky, pelting only you. ? Truly, that is what it feels like. But that feeling is a trial that won't last forever. ? Never give up.
