When you’re at your breaking point
The girl on my computer screen was screaming. In the fictional online series I was previewing, she was one of eight teenagers who’d been stranded on a deserted island—and she was at her breaking point.
In her screams, I recognized echoes of the real-life cries for help I’ve been hearing over the last eleven months. So many teens I know feel like they’re at their breaking point. And right now, “rescue” doesn’t even seem to be on the horizon—at least, not if we’re waiting for the pandemic to end or for life to head toward normal.
But is that what we’re waiting for? Is a countdown to “normal” the only thing keeping us sane?
