I hope everyone is doing ok and if you are not remember that is ok not to be ok. There is only the odd cloud in the sky now and I am relishing in the sunlight, I no longer fear the darkness, as I know daylight soon follows. This is the thing though it sucks having a mental illness, to put it bluntly, but I do feel because of my mental illness I am able to understand a lot better without the downs how do we recognize when we are up? So just how I am bathing in the sunlight today, one day I will learn not to be so afraid of the dark. I find it quite ironic that life can be a bit of a rollercoaster at times, as I hate rollercoasters. Life is full of twists and turns and highs and lows but eventually, your feet find the ground again it just takes time.
My tip of the day is –
Don’t be afraid of the dark.
Darkness can strike fear in the strongest man and bring them to their knees. There is no control in the darkness so anything can happen, you lose many things in the dark but you also can gain. Where do you think bravery and determination come from, the darkness doesn’t also have to end in something negative you can grow in the dark. When you find yourself in the darkness you are scared and lost but when you eventually find your way out, you are no longer afraid you are a warrior who has come home from battle a little wounded, yes, but stronger than you were before.
There are many different analogies I could use for this I could compare it to Bane or even bears hibernating. The darkness can show you the way; you just have to depend on the other senses you necessary wouldn’t normally depend on.
Take care all
