Are you broken? Do you feel worthless, incapable of contributing in any way towards the situations and people around you. Have you given up? Stop and think for a minute. You’ve been there, you’ve seen what lies behind the ‘I’m fine’ masks. You’ve experienced the reality of depression, addiction, bereavement and countless other dark scenarios. And you’ve come through the other side, scarred but intact.
Scars are trophies of war, a war against the darkness. They are stitched together with compassion and wisdom. By overcoming your demons you have become a light, a beacon to others. You know their pain, understand their despair. Reach out to them, for they are many and they are everywhere. Reach out today. You survived for a reason. You can be someone else’s reason to live today. Reach out.
