The mind can be a tricky place. It can either benefit you or ruin you.
Sometimes, you have no choice or say. Scary…

Thirty years of life and I’ve been taken hostage – twice. The first time, my mind was the culprit. The doctor said it was paranoia. I didn’t leave my home, convinced someone (or something) might murder me. Or even worse… I spoke to no one. But the voices came for me. The shadows, […]
Wow, the sheer helplessness of the situation was plapable right from the start of the story! It is amazing how you breathe life into your stories! 👏👏

Yes, I definitely know a case about psychological disorder. A college professor stops taking his medicine. He ends up divorcing his wife and quitting his job. He didn’t kill anybody, but it just shows that how our mind can be our worst enemy.
It’s tragic. The mind can make us fall or stand tall. So many have to face a daily struggle. And it can be very ugly.
Thank you Haoyan for sharing this.
Slightly telegraphed (I’m always on the lookout for the twist when it comes to your tales) but expertly delivered (which I’m sure your adoring fans have already let you know, so I don’t know why I’m bothering to waste my breath). Keep swinging away, slugger!
Your comments are dearly appreciated, kind Sir. And you neither waste your breath nor your words. Thank you so much for all the encouragement and support.
One day, I shall hit a home run. Till then, I swing away. 🙂

Thank you, Diana. 🙂
The mind can be unreliable.
It’s sad when a person has no control.
