Too much going on, I need to escape!

Question:
 
I have so much going on right now and I feel like I’m drowning. I have nobody to share my thoughts with. I want to throw whatever life I’ve got away and do something - anything - to escape my reality. I have no positive outlets, no healthy relationships nor any tools to help me cope. How am I supposed to have a chance at success?

GYE Answers:

First of all, share your life with Hashem. He is your very best friend. Believe me, no flesh and blood relationships can ever really solve your problems. I know so many people with many good relationships and still lonely inside. Only Hashem can fill that hole, and He is always with you.

Also the feeling of drowning from "too much going on" is out of place. We can't do ANYTHING on our own, but when Hashem helps us we can do ANYTHING. So just throw it all on to Him and take a breather. It's not your business to succeed, it's His business. You only have to avail yourself of Hashem's help and allow yourself to be used by Him for what he wants to do through you in His world.

It's gonna be Ok. Smile and just put one foot in front of the other, that's all He asks of us now. Don't think about what will be down the line. Just one foot in front of the other for NOW... In a few days/weeks/months/years you'll look back and be amazed at how far you came!
