Life

Underwater

It’s not all the time you feel alive and giddy, since the world around you is not only filled with sunshine but rain. Remember those moments you have in which you are overwhelmed; can’t breathe, think, or move. You have absolutely nothing in your control or have enough time in which to react. Your mind begins to conceive other alternatives to block the situation, giving you another way out.

It may be work, school, or your social life, but everyone has those moments — I call them the “Underwater Experience.” I call the situation that because it holds a similar feeling of being underwater. As you float under the surface you hear voices up above and they are muffled by your own heartbeat and the sound of water splashing. Your movements are difficult to make.  Your vision is blurry. There is that unpleasant feeling of air running short and the need to burst out to the surface. So, if you ever experience one of those moments, stay strong, and push to the surface.
