Like a dark cloud hovering over the sky, the feelings creep in, drowning all sense of reality. You sometimes wonder if anyone really cares for you. In a stream of painful memories, everything comes back with a renewed vengeance. All the hurt and emotions are so overwhelming and intense that they pull you deeper into the valley of misery until you can stand it no longer. You want to scream, but only a numbness remains, leaving you empty and without feeling. Remember that the darkest hour is just before dawn, and like everything else, it too will pass. Don’t turn your back to the light. Break free from your darkness and seek the strength within. Lift the clouds of despair and let the light shine through to your heart, because it is loved and cherished more than you know.
