Breaking The Writer’s Silence

Have you ever felt the weight of the world on your shoulders before? It disturbs everything you do. It attacks your creativity, your peace of mind, your sense of calm, and keeps you unbalanced. Let’s face it, you are not at your best, are you?

What do you do when there is so much pressure on you, it makes you feel as though you are suffocating? You literally feel you cannot breathe. If you ever felt this way before I would like to know what you have done to eliminate that feeling. Send your answer to me personally at

I read the bible a great deal and know I can take on Jesus yoke becuase he can lighten my load. There are also times I choose to workout and blow off steam. I know about depress and unstress at times. I am talking about when you really feel as though the sky is falling and everything that can go wrong does go wrong.

To give you a little context as an example:

Let’s say for illustration purposes you woke up one morning and found that you have lost your home due to unforseen reasons and everything you have worked for has gone up and smoke with no way to recoup your loss.

To add insult to injury you have just suffered the loss of your significant other, and lost all your belonging including your only vehicle to drive you to work. Only to take a cab to work to find out they have just let you go. To make matters worse your account was hacked and your financial savings were all gone in moment of insucurity that compromise your financial standings.

Le’ts recap, you lost all that you saved and owned. You also lost the love of your life and you are now homeless and your sky fell beneath the earth. You have no family left and it’s you and you alone.


There are people with the resilience to bounce back stronger and strive. That is great too! However, I have learned over the course of the years I have been on this earth we all handle the same situation differently. We may hear someone’s story and say, if that happen to me I would do this, that, and the other. When in reality we really won’t know how we would act until it actually happen to us and we feel that pain of losing the love of our life, everything we have worked so hard to obtain.

My Two Cents

I say continue to wake up every morning. Be thankful you are still here and breathing and able to do the things we normally take for granted. Take time to grieve, take time to assess how you feel and don’t do this thing on your own. Because it’s ok to find someone you can confide in and get things off your chest. Keep talking and when it’s time make a plan and work your plan while talking and confiding, and building new alliances as you continue to get stronger, while growing and becoming stronger.

Make sure not to neglect your welll being. Make sure to take care of yourself spiritually, mentally, and physically, so you can grow with a balance that will only strenghthen your resolve for the next trial life throws your way.

Take it one day at a time. Life is not a sprint. In the grand scheme of things it’s considered a life long marathon. Pace yourself and more importantly, don’t forget to enjoy those preciouse little moments that time offers us.
