Darkness mastery

As someone who has struggled with lifelong depression, I have learned to master the darkness…
Being a master does not mean that one is without struggle. 

One tool that I cannot stress highly enough, is having friends who know when to come looking for you with their own flashlights

  1. I so agree with you Cinn! It is a true blessing to have friends come and hold your hand to help you enjoy the scenery, whether you’re still focused on the darkness or able to turn back to the light.
    Sending much love, always!

    1. Yes, I’ve struggled with depression my whole life. I’ve been suicidal many times. I have learned to recognize that the voice telling me it might be easier if…it’s evil.
      It’s a lie… so when I hear it wisper, I tell it to go away… I tell it that I know it’s not the truth.

      That’s mastering the darkness.

      There is no surety that I will always be strong enough… That is why I am constantly searching for sparkles… Constantly surrounding myself by light

      And the what if’s… I don’t have a ton of friends, but what I do have is true friends
      If you don’t have this, I’m going to suggest you start there… And the only way to do it is to be vulnerable… That’s what I have posted on today
