Negativity was never my strongest suit, but here I go!
Due to recent events, both inside and outside of my circles of influence, I realized that there is a lot of depressing and dismal things going around that it can drive any person to the brink of hopelessness. I can't say I blame them. No matter how a person like me says that everything will be alright, I know that in some cases, it doesn't. Most of the time, it gets REALLY harder. So as time continues, we tend to forget that there is that proverbial light at the end of the tunnel. After all, when you're so deep in the dark, that light seems too faint to grasp.
So people get stuck. They join in being forgotten like the light they once had. They hide themselves in their routines, their plastic smiles, their once bright memories. Sometimes people just choose to hide in the dark alone.
but the thing is...YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
Everyone is finding their way through the dark. The light is not at the end of the tunnel, in my opinion, it's in finding a hand to hold on to in this darkness. It's feeling warmth in this cold. It's never forgetting the hands you have held on to. So find solace in the hands that you hold. It is in solitude, rather than being alone, that you see better in the dark.
So in these dark times, we can help each other be each other's light. It will be difficult, and like I said, it's going to get worse before it actually lightens up but we have each other. Always remember that you have people willing to hold your hand. People who remember you before the darkness. And that, my friend, makes all the difference.
It'll make the darkness that much brighter.
