A breakup—and you think you’ll never find someone else. A job lost—maybe you just aren’t good enough. Or life feels overwhelming and out of control—and it seems like it will never get any better.
Often, we know that it’s just temporary. We’ll feel bad, maybe overreact, but then we get back to it. I’ll find someone else. I’ll get another job. I’ll build back up.
Sometimes, though, the disasters pile up. As if the universe is trying to destroy you. When your whole world is collapsing, you begin to think there is no way out.
