I realize that I live on the bubble of insanity. I feel the weight of human suffering, loneliness and despair on me all the time. It's not getting easier; if anything, it's always right on the edge of my skin.

-Erwin McManus


The Nine of Swords is a card of nightmares, of fear of figments in your mind, and of excessive worry. It's possible that your reaction to a situation is making the situation worse than it really is. Try to step back and look at things more objectively.


You are excessively worried and despairing over situations that, if you could see them objectively, would not seem nearly as bad. Try not to spiral into anxiety and fear over your thoughts and concerns regarding the current state of things, as you are likely thinking that things are worse than they actually are.
