PRESSURES OF LIFE

8개월 전

Woke up to the showers of rain this morning here in Bayelsa, Nigeria. The last two months have been hot with high temperatures both during the day and at night. Maybe all this is down to the effects of global warming.

Things and changing rapidly yet no one seems to be paying enough attention around here. All that the government is interested in is how to milk the nation's treasury into their pockets like cow milk. But that's not the issue today.

A lot has happened to me lately and it is part of the reasons why I stayed off steemit for a while. The pressures of life are coming in thick and fast on a daily and that sense of responsibility that comes with maturity constantly spreads its big wings on my mind.

Recently, each time I say "I am fine/good" to the question "How are you?" It feels as though I am only but lying to myself. Sometimes I really do want to open up to the few people around me but the feeling that they can't help or they wouldn't even understand just makes me shot off instantly.

I need help but I don't know where it'll come. Maybe I just need a hug and a pat on the back, or someone to say "hang in there, everything is gonna be alright."
God! I need you more than ever!! Make a way for me even there seems to be no way out.
