Life Can Be Too Much

See the woman in the picture?!

Maybe she is just exhausted, dead-tired…

of witnessing the bottomless barrage of suffering she can’t heal;

the incomprehensible nonsense she can’t grasp;

tripping over the same damn lies, disappointments, broken promises, and heartbreaks.

image of a woman who is blindfold, facing right and being pulled by her blindfold

Maybe, she has had enough.

Maybe her heart, her soul, and her sanity feel the insistent pull to find a vacant corner of our world and to cloak herself in the peace of visual and auditory emptiness… and rest–even if only for little while.


Maybe she is you… Maybe she is me…

Call to action: Has there ever been a time when you felt that life was just too much? Do you need to rest a while?

  1. Yes! I have felt like this more times than I can count. Sometimes, I just want to turn everything off and just pretend that I am not even here when I realized that I only need to be strong and live through this life, because eternal everlasting rest will come soon enough.

  2. What an interesting and thought provoking photo. I think everyone could see themselves in her place at times in their life. Some times you just want to give up. Thank you, Janine, for not.

    1. Thanks for the encouragement. I am not planning on giving up. But I wanted to write a post for all of us who has ever felt crushed by life. I want others to know they are not alone.
