On my way into work this morning, I heard Shawn Mendes' new song, "In My Blood".  It's a song about his battle with anxiety.  He relates it to a girl in the song, but in real life, he's had to seek medical help with anxiety and panic attacks.  The song made me think of how people let bad situations take over their lives, myself included.  And sometimes people harm themselves trying to ease the pain.  Never do permanent harm to yourself over a temporary situation.

I heard of another suicide over the weekend.  It's horrible.  Like many, I've thought of taking my own life.  Luckily, I failed.  So as I write this blog, believe me, I'm speaking to myself as well.

If you have something in your life that is weighing you down terribly, seek professional help.  There are many agencies available online that offer free services.  Also, reach out to friends and family.  Take a deep breath and remind yourself time heals.  And most bad situations are only temporary.

Be blessed.  Have a wonderful Monday.
