Four in ten adults reach their breaking point sometime in their life. Whether that’s at home or work (mostly work), and sometimes people just don’t know what to do. They don’t know who to reach out too, whether that’s a friend or a family member. They’ll even try to seek out every outlet known to man with no satisfaction. Their breaking point grows worse and they’ll just throw their hands up in surrender. Once that happens everyone around them has become a target. Someone to lash at, to blame, to push away, until they’re alone in the world.
No one shouldn’t have to go through that. Feeling alone in a world that is already cold to the residents living in it. With nowhere or no one to reach out too, they will retreat to a corner and will sit there, letting life pass them by like a breeze in a winter morning. No one to hear their cries or understand their situation. No matter how little or big it is, they just want someone to listen to them.
They feel misunderstood, unwanted by the world itself. Even when there are people that are trying their best to reach out to them, only to be muffed out by the noise of negative thoughts surrounding their minds. Lost and confused they start to wonder if they should end it all now and be done with life itself. They know that people will miss them, but they’re tired of the feeling. They’re tired of the breaking point.
We all have our breaking point. Some worse than others, but we all want the same things in life. We want to be loved, successful, most importantly understood. Not the opposite of those things, but when we don’t get them, we lose our minds and retreat in our dark corners allowing the enemy to invade our thoughts. This is what we call a breaking point and it’s the one thing between life and death.
