The light at the end of the tunnel

Dear Lost Soul,

I could pretend to understand what you are going through but I won’t, despite having been in such a situation myself.

I could give you a crazy amount of advice, tips, or rather steps to guide you to a better life.

I could give you a blueprint, no, I could give you the whole map.

I could give you my hand, and act as your guide out of the darkness.

But, I won’t. I say this because I know that no matter how pure my intentions are this would never work, because that which doesn’t come from within you, will never be of much help to you.

So here I am, as a friend who has been in similar darkness, who experienced heart breaks and heart aches in places I never thought possible, who wished for nothing more than her last day, who felt abandoned and alone. I am here to tell you that it will get better.

I know you have heard this before, and you probably feel like punching me in the face, that in this moment you feel like there is nothing but darkness surrounding you. Believe me, it will get better.

Before that however, you will have to hit the lowest of low, you will have to go so low that there is no other way but to rise up.

I won’t encourage you to wait until then. Instead,when you are tired, so tired that you want a completely different life than the one you’ve got right now, then ask me and I will tell you that it is time, it is time to put in the work because as sad as this might be to hear. There is no one coming for you, you are all you have got.

So put on your shoes, start your journey, explore, experiment, learn, unlearn, then relearn then learn alot more.

Set your intention, make up your mind and then take whichever step necessary that is needed to bring you to a better place.

I guarantee you the light at the end of the tunnel is real, and the sight is just as illuminating as it is beautiful.

Without a doubt you’ll thank yourself every single day for starting on this journey today.

So, meet me where darkness ends and the shadows of light begin.
