Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 69 People

    Crashing

    It feels today as if the world is crashing in around me. I want to lie in bed and let my dreams carry me to more pleasant times, but alas I cannot. I have to rise above it and keep going. Think about the positive and create a new path for today. Smile and be happy.
