I’ve had insomnia for many years, and I do a lot of sitting when everyone is sleeping. The darkness used to frighten me. I felt so alone, and it seemed like the sun would never come up the next morning. Sometimes I didn’t think I would make it through the night. Do you ever feel that way?
Sometimes the darkness comes when we’re not expecting it. Sometimes we’re surrounded by people who don’t understand. Sometimes the answers don’t come when we need them to. Sometimes we think we won’t make it through the night. Hold on until tomorrow. It always comes. It ALWAYS comes. Don’t give up. Don’t give into the darkness.
And if you’re not lost and frightened, remember to hold out your hand and your heart to someone who is. Be a light in the darkness. One day it might even be you who needs that hand, that heart, that light.
