Thank you, God.

I'm reaching out to you once more through the spirit of Jesus. I pray for solace as well as direction in handling the problems that appear to eclipse my hopes and desires. I imagine a life in which I am not only a resident but also a creator within my own home—a location where different rooms function as studios to grow and promote my commercial ventures. In my quest for achievement, I long to drive the vehicles that dance in my head.

Reflecting on my journey, I am reminded of the fear that gripped me on the first night alone in this endeavor. However, it has evolved into the exact essence of my desire over time. I perceive in myself the ability to adapt to new situations, a trait that endures in the face of life's unavoidable changes.

As I reflect on the unknowns of 2024, I am inclined to speak words of prosperity and success over my life. However, the hard reality of this year's problems causes me to doubt the veracity of my dreams. Despite my efforts to promote my business on platforms such as TikTok and Instagram, I am unable to generate sales. A $60 promotional effort produced no sales, and job applications appear to fall on deaf ears.

The difficulty grows as I work through the complexities of closing my enterprises in the United States. The sense of immobility is oppressive, and I find myself trapped in a seemingly never-ending cycle of fruitless activities. Today, tears flowed freely as I faced the anger and exhaustion that come with this uphill battle. Unfairness dominates my current sense of life, and the desire to go forward is both a yearning and a cry.

I am exhausted beyond measure. The search of a breakthrough appears distant, and the weight of striving weighs heavy on my shoulders. Dreams of travel, debt relief, and simple pleasures like dining on the beach are hampered by barriers. Every ambition appears to hit a stumbling block, leading me to wonder why this trip of mine is so difficult.

The rallying cry of the "Strongest soldier speech" has faded, and the inequality of life's allocation of difficulties weighs heavily on my soul. Why must some have an easier route while others are entangled in never-ending struggles? It's not a decision I made, nor a position I freely accepted. Above all, it's not for a lack of trying to get myself out of this situation.

If life is a trip, I must confess that I despise this specific leg of the voyage. It's a long journey, and the tiredness in my bones attests to the difficulties encountered. I want to move forward; I want to find the path that works best for me. The frequency of my request reflects the intensity of my exhaustion.

Please put an end to this chapter.

I pray in Jesus' name.
