It’s cliché, but I like the roller coaster analogy for life. The pace varies, there are hills that require tremendous energy and beget anxiety, and there are exhilarating drops. Sometimes, though, there’s a malfunction, and the train stops right there in the middle of the tracks. It happened just a few days ago out in San Francisco. People were stuck, 80 feet off the ground, for as much as 4 hours.

The metaphor holds in life. Sometimes there’s a malfunction, and everything gets stuck. It happened recently for Shaun Groves, who battled an unexpected and severe depression. He was brave enough to chronicle his story. If you’ve ever been touched by this cunning and debilitating condition, I encourage you to read his tale:
