Murky thoughts deep in self-reflection settle in to take over every waking and sleeping thought. Goals and intentions long planned take a back seat as despair reaches into every oracle and orifice humanly conceivable. No longer does the human machine persevere in its daily endeavors. Life stands still while despair is around.
Self-preservation allows despair to take over, as the self gives up to the unwelcome guest. Dreams and desires no longer have a place within this sphere. Time itself moves at its own pace, minutes, hours even days become a blur. The simple act of breathing becomes labored and inconsequential. Power and control are the factors involved while despair hangs around.
Never invited and truth be told, hardly ever mentioned; despair is the genetic tie that brings us the closest to our past. As we are not the first and indeed won’t be the last to experience this unwelcome guest to creep into our existence.
As humans we are created with the capability to express and feel emotions; positive emotions that allow us to fully experience the joyful things in life. Balance is universal, and as such, negative emotions are also part of being human. Without both ends of the spectrum we would never know how good the little joys really are. However, some negative emotions are to the extreme and cause emotions that begin to spiral out of our control. We are also created to survive, once we reach the threshold of what we can handle on our own, the emotions may become overwhelming.
