Sometimes you’ve had enough. It comes at different points for everyone. There’s a point where you’ve been pushed around so much that things look hopeless. Lifeless. Void of any meaning or worth.

Let me pose a question: how do you, or do you not, maintain your physical well-being? Is it through exercising or dieting? Maybe you’ve been blessed with an extremely high metabolism.
