Back against the Wall

It’s another one of those days. You’ve been here before, you don’t like it, because everything around you is shutting down, closing you off and you’re sure you can’t survive.

Doubt surrounds you. The voice in your head is screaming, “What is the matter with you?!”

You look for signs of hope, possibility, and all you see is the wall. Closing in.

You close your eyes and images of ridicule and sarcasm stream into view. Your friend who turned away, the boss shaking his head, and even your own face in the mirror.

It’s an ugly world. Do you open your eyes and look for the crack in the wall or keep them shut and simply learn to take it?

These are the only questions that make any sense to you, and so far the answers are on the other side of the wall. How do you get there?
