Slow down look up breathe in now exhale yes, you are still very much alive. The universe does not care but He does. Who’s He? Glad you asked. He molds life out of dirt, His medium of choice. He was there before your first breath; this current struggle to inhale an echo of that day, so please breathe in don’t you dare stop. Your life is worth a second breath and another and another and another trillion more. Yes, He breathed life into you. He goes by a few names Yahweh Adonai, aka Jesus He knows this present life is a disaster of unspeakable sadness. He experienced it, and it killed Him, but not for long. He offers something new fresh, unblemished, transcendent. Take a deep breath. Ask Him anything. I promise you the answer will leave you speechless.
