2015 has begun and before I could even think of making new year resolutions this happened to me. Hopefully if you are experiencing the same thing you may find this post helpful.
Barely a few hours into morning and barely a couple of days or so into the dawn of 2015 and I re-experienced something, I’d barely begun to forget about. It had been practically years even since I’d even been touched by it and since I felt that pressing dread and thick heaviness on my being. 2015 and I thought I’d well and fully conquered it.
