A turning point in life.

That is what most people would call it. Everyone will turn around, glance sideways, then tell you to use this as an opportunity.

The obstacle to tackle here is no longer the issue; nothing is to be done when the verdict is not in your hands.

The dilemma begins when the motivation ebbs out of your body, draining from your heart and leaving you trembling in an empty void of what they call misery. Your mind pesters you with all the nagging, all the speeches about taking the initiative and hassling right now.

Work until you drop on achieving everything you have been putting on the back burner.

Yet, a part of you feels this immense disappointment, this nagging feeling that keeps on whispering abominable things.

“You do not deserve anything now. You brought it on yourself.”

It eats you from the inside out, doesn’t it? This growing malicious infection spreads through your veins and blocks your will to do anything. These cancerous thoughts will drown you in your pool of pity if you dwell on it for too long.
