YAHAYA BALOGUN, Arizona, USA
In times of tribulation, in the absence of mindfulness, a lot of lonely thoughts (such as suicidal ideation) can creep into our subconscious minds. In spite of our fame, success, knowledge, confidence, achievement etc., there is a tiny bit of void in our hearts or minds.
