Five Finger Death Punch - Never Enough
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bKWdsnGuFUM

I'm so fed up with everyone around me
No one seems to care
I'm just so far gone and nothing's gonna change
I'll never be the same
It's always do this, do that, everything they want to
I don't wanna live that way (No!)
Every chance they get they're always pushing me away

It's never enough, no it's never enough
No matter what I say
It's never enough, no it's never enough
I'll never be what you want me to be

It's all so messed up and no one ever listens
Everyone's deranged
I'm just so fucked up and I'm never gonna change
I wanna lay it all to waste
They're always say this, say that, nothing that you want to
I don't wanna live that way (No!)
Every chance they get they're always shoving me aside

It's never enough, no it's never enough
No matter what I say
It's never enough, no it's never enough
I'll never be what you want me to be
I'M DONE!

In the end we're all just chalk lines on the concrete
Drawn only to be washed away
For the time that I've been given
I am what I am

I'd rather hate you for everything you are
Than ever love you for something you are not
I'd rather you hate me for everything I am
Than have you love me for something that I can't

It's never enough, it's never enough
No matter what I say
It's never enough, no it's never enough
No matter who I try to be
It's never enough, no it's never enough
No matter how I try to change
It's never enough, never never enough
I'll never be what you want me to be

You have no idea how many Mormons and lately how many exMo's I know that have that amount of Rage or available energy just below the surface. Try your best to channel all that power wisely!

Great song, the "Never Enough" Mormon mantra is what drove me to seek the calm Christ gives and (not Mormonism) genuinely offers.

I've been out of Mormonism now for over 40 years and left when I was 20. I've been listening a lot to 5FDP recently and with all the stress at work and in my life (though I have to say almost none of it has to do with Mormonism as it is so far in my past) one song really starts out with how I feel:

"There's just so much goddamned weight on my shoulders
All I'm trying to do is live my motherf**king life"

Stress, be careful... All stress must be remembered for what it really is. You feel stress and strain whenever and wherever you are not fully in control. Sometimes we can easily associate stress with positive things like affection, comfort or as crazy as it might at first sound, we sometimes can associate stress with love.

Especially since being once Mormon where the highly stressed environmental arena that we grew up in was most likely very very stressful. It was familiar, it was where love was found, it was commonplace to our everyday existence.
(You do see where I am going, right?)

Yes! Sometimes we create or allow stress or can even seek to add stress to feel love. Sort of like returning to what was familiar in our childhood. It can immediately boost our adrenalin levels found inside of our system. Adding maybe also to our sense of purpose and even our reason for being.

Nothing at all wrong with any of this, it's just really really nice to be perfectly aware. I'm a goofball overperformer at times and oftimes (sorry hehe) it can easily lead to some sort of trouble or unnecessary risk taking. I like to take risks in a minimum sense, it's simply smarter!

So there you have it, take safe or sure risks only, stay in control, both contribute to less stress.
