What time does to the forgotten

They get ignored. I apologize for not paying much attention to this blog. I have never been a responsible blogger since I never update regularly (if you call every few months regular, then I'm in the clear). But months ago I made a promise to use this blog for a purpose, and even if no one reads it, I'm still pushing for it.

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.

Very true. It's a good thing I saw this link on facebook. Strangely, I feel like giving up on hope as well.

Sadly, it is kinda easier to live in the darkness, forget one's dreams and just continue existing. But what would life be if we all chose that path.

Thanks! I find your resurrection of your blog very timely
