When your surrounded and engulfed by the fires torment. This is not time to assign blame or guilt. This is not the time to self create a string of excuses. This is also not the time to curl up and die, or cry, or quit, or surrender, or just give up or give in.
Wait not for a hero, a rescuer or any other life saver.
Stand up. Stand firm. Face the fires fury. Confront and conquer all that which troubles you. Adapt and overcome all that which binds you. Assume no other option. Do so like Gandhi, like Jesus.
