The Wall Of Despair 4/17/19 Read Count : 6

Lately  I’ve been reading many works by our members expressing frustration and despair over their present life situations
Some indicated that they will fight these
issues while others appeared to give up,
bogged down in their depression 
The feeling hitting that barrier and no way or person to turn too seems to give them only one choice, which is difficult and painful to even  repeat ,the decision being to surrender to situations
and “end it all” I’m hoping that I’m 
misinterpreting this, it is tragic to see that people with the gift of writing have reached this dreaded wall. 
In no way do I blame or criticize anyone 
who has been put in this position .
It is a sad commentary on our society thatthose desperate,  hurting people have nowhere or nobody to turn too
It seems they feel that everyone including their faith has deserted them
OthersWO members have responded to them with support, empathy and advice 
Whether  this has helped is difficult to know but their efforts are to be commended 
I know that we all will continue to reach out to each other in a time of need and desperation as well as encouraging 
and positive support so evident in the

  • Thank you for writing this, Maurice. Like you, i too, have noticed the same tone of despair in many of the writings that i have read in here. All of us go through different experiences in life that may sometimes get too overwhelming to handle. Some have better coping mechanism than others, some have good support system while some don't. Writer's Outlet is not just merely a writing app for us to collectively pour out our creativity, it is also a community. No one here on this app should ever feel alone.
