“You ever have a cold? An unbearable cold.
Where you can’t breathe, you can’t eat.
Food is bland, life is stale.
You just exist.
Day by day, waiting for it to pass.
Waiting for life to get better.
Not sure when to be hopeful, not sure when to just accept and live in the darkness.
Your body fails you, you feel like a zombie.
But when you finally come out of that cold, everything is better.
Not just life itself, but the granular details you’ve overlooked.
Breathing, eating, tasting, smelling.
It’s all much better.”

“My hope for you is that even when you fall into darkness, as I have, you can appreciate yourself through it all and know, it’s okay to feel the darkness as much as the joy.”
