Reality can seem violent when you first let out your dreaded feelings that have fossilized in the darkness where you’ve buried them for so long. But the heart racing to infinity, the cold sweating, the dizziness, the restlessness – that’s the anticipation of nightmares that only are real in the dark. Don’t fear my friend. The light suffices as protection. Nothing evil can hide there. And your feelings just are, they aren’t wrong or right. Don’t stuff them in the back where they become the staple food of your demons. Don’t feed the darkness with what was supposed to feed your light. It was supposed to make it burn brighter, repel the evil, integrate the shadows.
