This is solely my opinion I’ve been down this road too many times . I feel I’ve only made it this far to share my experience.

It is important to know the deepest, darkest place in your mind. Many if not all would disagree with me until they are blue in the face. I have learned in my years on this earth that we all have been there at least once in our lives, and we tend to forget that. They lead us to believe that the darkness is evil, and we shall head towards the light if we truly want happiness. Now that I have your attention I would like to elaborate a bit more on my statement above, so you may take a minute and observe things from a unique perspective. The dark in its entirety is not dangerous it is the acts that take place while in that state of mind that precipitates the evil name. If you have ever been to absolute darkness, the absent of light you would understand what I’m heading towards. The dark is where many people truly find themselves and uncover who they are and who they have turned into over time. The thing that provokes the negative actions of one's self is exactly that the forces of one's self most likely due to not being happy with whom or what they have become. Do not accept those actions make those actions your servant and embrace who or what you have grown into even if you meet a monster. You are worth every second of life and every breath you take, regardless of what we think. I have been there plenty of times even recently, and it took a lot for me to open my eyes and realize the agony everyone else would endure and could cause a domino effect within your loved ones. I felt your misery I know the dark I felt what it’s like to feel numb all over and feel worthless. When you get to that point you know when the lights are on, but nobody is home yeah there stop to consider just for a moment why. Is it something you have done, is it the person you have become, do you look at yourself as a demon or a beast? Why? What caused you to turn there? Hold that devil by the horns and ride it so you can embrace you, discover yourself and develop into a better person, grow into what you want to be, you are in control even in darkness you just have to find your inner riddick and don’t be overwhelmed nor overpowered just because it’s different, difficult, and dark. You 're strongest when you can pull your butt through both light and dark without falling into the traps of the darkness. For the moments you hear the devil whispering in your ear take advantage of it, just whisper back “I am stronger than you for I thrive here for this has grown into my playground “. Do not fret for if you are not afraid at least one bit, then you have a weakness for the devil to feed on. Be honest with yourself about who and what you are as well as the level of fear you feel, for he knows your deepest desires, darkest thoughts and fears and will utilize those against you. Do yourself a favor and apply it first to really put everything back together.
