There is always a reason to keep thriving. There is a reason never to give up. Sometime while I wander off I sit and ask myself why is life full of challenges?
To this question I am still unable to answer. There is this feeling I get, I felt like the ground should open and swallow me up because I was fed up of life.
Even thought of committing suicide embraced me and never want to leave me. I was frustrated.
Most of you will know how it feel that moment you just want to stop living. You seems very frustrated and tired of living too but worry is a waste of time.
It normal to be fed up!!!
Frustration comes with failures. When you fail constantly, fall below expectation you tend to get frustrated.

27 Will all your worries add a single moment to your life?
True Living Translation (TLB) said how many of you with all your worries can add a moment to your life.
Moment here can stands for a lot of things:
- Moment can means situation. If moment is situation then the translation should be how many of you by thinking can change this situation of yours?
- Moment can stand for finance. It will then be how many of you by worrying can change this financial status of yours?
The truth is worry doesn’t change anything.
