Those demons aren’t here to torment you.
They are spurring you forward.
Those people that hurt you aren’t acting out of malice.
They are lost and hurt souls, just like you.
The darkness is merely cover until you are strong enough to face the brightest and most beautiful light shining down on you.
We face obstacles only to be able to make it to the other side of them, wiser, stronger, and freer.
How does it change things for you if you ask, “What is the message?” instead of “Why does this have to happen to me?”
I know what it feels like.
I learned every lesson the hard way.
I survived and you will too.
Keep facing those demons.
You are stronger than you think.
And you get even stronger every time you face one.
You have what it takes to make it through.
I can see your future and it’s big and bright and beautiful.
You are happy.
You are free.
And from that magical place, you look back and know exactly why you faced each demon and the need for their existence.
They had to exist.
To make you, you.
And you feel this odd gratitude for the things that caused you so much pain.
Then, you will take all that you learned, and you will turn around to help the lost soul behind you.
You are a warrior of the light.
Until next time...
