Sometimes when life seems to be pulling you back, it isn't so bad. The Most High always gives you a way out of sticky situations. It's not as bad as it seems. Don't stress yourself out. Just open yourself up to good and positive things that the universe has to offer.
Like one wise man once told me "Except the good and bad of what life has to offer." because in every situation there's a lesson learnt. and learn from that situation and keep going.
Besides how can you appreciate the good things, if you've never experience the bad. Right?
