Do you ever feel like you’re sinking? You’ve gone so low that you can’t find a way up and happiness is a distant memory. Situations can leave us depressed and feel that we can no longer go on and that nothing will ever be the same again. You change as a person, guarded against the world, your heart locked and the key thrown away to prevent anyone ever reaching it again. It’s a sad and lonely place but for some the only defence they can use to protect what’s left of their soul. We all deal with hurt in our own way, pills, counselling, denial but one thing is certain, the pain never leaves. It can be buried deep inside, pushed to the back of your mind until it attempts to resurface but it will forever be there, a constant reminder dragging you under. Some are lucky to get through it, moving on with their lives while others continue to drown in their sorrow wondering if there even is a light at the end of the tunnel.
