“Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet

confinement of your aloneness

to learn

anything or anyone

that does not bring you alive

is too small for you.”

~~ David Whyte ~~

wp-1471184989527.jpgI feel that you can only fully appreciate the impact of these few, simple words if you have gone through depression.

The soul is imprisoned within walls of impenetrable, air tight steel that grips and squeezes out every last drop of the air your lungs contain.

It`s tough to leave behind that which seemed safe, but to step out beyond the boundaries of self delusion and walk away from that, and those that seemed your haven through the storm and fury of life, is true freedom from despair and darkness.

Don`t look back, you are not going there.
