Falling Apart

Firstly, I want to express my sincerest apologies to all those who follow my blog, or enjoy reading my articles. The absence I took from writing was not entirely by choice, though I wouldn’t say that I was without the option to write. For those of you who don’t know, I have 2 jobs, one…

If I were to sum up why people commit suicide to a single reason, it would simply be Life vs. Pain. What do I mean by this? Well, just imagine life as a balance. One one side you have life as a whole, including your dreams, your family, your job(s), etc. On the other side,…
