Daphne: No, no. I’m good. Really.
Robert: *sits next to Daphne* Well, I don’t think so. Tell me.
Daphne: No, really, it’s just… something I read.
Robert: On a messenger?
Daphne: *hides phone* Umm, that’s—

I felt trapped, lost, confused, and empty. I tried to calm myself down, but nothing worked. Then, suddenly, a post from an old friend on Facebook enlightened me. I realized that when I’m almost drowned, God always shows the way to save myself. Sometimes, the way he shows is one that I never expect before.
