What do you do when you feel the whole world is against you??????

You wake up in the morning just like everyone else, but what you wake to is a life of stress and constant struggle.

Every which way you turn someone has a go at you about something you have done, or haven’t done or couldn’t do, or is out of your control. You get dogged by everyone.

You can’t even answer the phone as there is always someone on the other end wanting something from you.

You spouse blames you for everything that’s amiss in your lives.
Your kids are a constant reminder that you can’t do all and they dog you and dog you expecting if they ask the same question for i.e. when are you going to buy food, 5 minutes later the answer is going to be different, or a cupboard and fridge that is empty will all of a sudden appear full.

You do everything possibly for your family but still your actions are not good enough, or you’re an embarrassment to them or they just don’t have time for you or you’re told your just one big pain in the arse.

Yet you labour for them time and time again, going out of your way to make sure there ever whim is granted. Going without things for you so as they don’t have to go without. But you get to a time when everything is just too much, every way you turn is another negative response knocking you down further and further till you feel the whole world is against you.

You look at the options as slim as they may appear. Yet there is no hope in any of them but to just stay and endure. So you pick yourself up and brush off the hurt and despair and get up in the morning trying to piece together a better attitude and you go back to the labour of love like every other time. You cope better for a while until it all gets too much again and you fall back into this empty despair again.

So what do you do when you feel the whole world is against you?

Do you just repeat this same scenario time after time?

Do you walk out and leave it all behind you?

Do you take the ultimate escape and escape life entirely?

Do you sit with your friends time after time bitching and moaning about your desperate situation… till all your friends leave you because there is nothing left of the friendships anyway?

Do you get strong and put your foot down and say things are going to change around here? Only to worsen the situation, and have them hate you even more.

Do you sit there and do nothing and just pretend nothing is happening and things aren’t so bad.

Do you live a double life looking for love somewhere else?

Do you live in hope thinking one day things will change?

I think the answer lies deep within you, buried in your subconscious waiting for you to discover it.

What do you do when you feel the whole world is against you??????
