I feel beat up.
Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is insanity, as the saying goes. Doing different things and getting the same results is real life. At least that’s what my life feels like sometimes. And just when I’m starting to feel optimistic about something, it all goes wrong again.
I’ve been lied to and misled. I’ve been betrayed and stabbed in the back. I’ve been the recipient of many empty and hollow promises that never materialized.
Sometimes I feel like giving up. That’s been on my mind a bit more than usual lately, with a number of friends also suffering from depression, and all the celebrity suicides in the news recently.
But I’m not going to give up.
I’m going to keep putting one foot in front of the other as long as I can.
God still has work for me to do. Maybe things really will change someday. Or maybe I have to help someone else out of their darkness.
See you next time. I’ll still be here.
