Rockin’ Post #30: Eat Your Soul


I made this quote back in September but then things got really crazy and I kept forgetting about it. Haha! Yep! That’s me. Between the start of school and everything else that was on my plate I just plain forgot. So I guess this quote is perfect. Don’t let the world eat your soul. I’ll explain in a minute.


I had this as a mantra for myself back during my therapy days when my head was all sorts of screwed up and my demons were wreaking havoc on my life. Since then, I have met so many people who deal with some form of depression or other mental illness who are on a battlefield with the succubus that is there to take their souls. for many out there on this battlefield of mental anguish, it is every single day. Each new battle brings new problems. They don’t get a break to breath or take in the sunshine. It is constant for them. To them I say, don’t let it eat your soul. If despair takes over and depression wins, your soul will be lost.

While I am talking on a mostly metaphorical level about mythological creatures and what have you, this is a very real thing for those suffering from depression and other mental illness. However, this also applies to those who are just going through hard times. Hard times that seem to go on and on and on…much like the energizer bunny.

The long and short of it is, sometimes life just sucks! Sometimes when it rains it pours and there seems to be nothing we can do about it. But if we keep moving forward and keeping looking up, our souls will remain in tact. This is especially in these uncertain times we are living in. With the new President most are scared. We are uncertain of our future but we must keep moving forward. So, don’t let the world eat your soul.

    1. It’s something that I think many people struggle with and sometimes don’t know how to cope. I find this quote inspiring in that way. Learning how to deal. Thanks so much for you lovely comment!

  2. I completely get this and love the message behind your quote. We have been on a complete roller coaster ride with that cowboy Window company who wrecked our home. It’s been a battle for the last 5 months. It would have been so easy to let their bullying tactics pull us down completely. But heads-up, we just kept going and now there’s hope. #candidcuddles xx

    1. That’s awesome that you faced something that could have really brought you to the brink but you instead faced it and now things are getting better. Not letting things get to you too much can be very difficult but in the end it’s worth keeping as level as head about it as possible. Thanks so much for stopping by!

    1. That’s how I am Mac. I keep fighting. Some days I just want to crawl under a rock and hide away from the world but I always find my strength to get back up and live to love another day.

    1. Exactly! That’s how I choose to see what’s been happening in my country lately but it’s also how I choose to approach life. We all have our bad days and I’m no exception to that but these days I don’t wallow in it and let it swallow me whole.
