Strangling Struggles

Do you ever feel that life is a struggle you can’t escape?  I used to “struggle” with life daily but it has lessened some since I entered treatment.  The focus on these struggles can figuratively strangle and trap me in my head with my negative, self-loathing thoughts.  If I wasn’t struggling enough to begin with, add the negative thoughts and my train of misery has left the station with a one-way ticket to melancholy-ville.

The answer is simple…stop struggling.  But is it really that simple?
