“No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it." (1 Cor 10:13)
As men, a lot of times we feel like the struggles we face are unique to us. We want to handle things on our own. I've golfed with hundreds of guys over the last few years, and I can promise you one thing - you're not alone in your struggle. Your "island" is bigger than you think, and you're not the only one on it. So look around and find some other people; you need them and they need you.
