Ever have one of those days where everything seems to be falling a part?
Where you don’t feel good enough. You’re tired of fighting. Constantly comparing yourself to others, which only makes you feel worse.
Where you feel hopeless, lost, confused.
Ever feel like a complete failure? Like there is no hope for your future?
Ever feel like you’ll never achieve anything in life?
Ever feel like you’re not worthy of love?
Ever feel like you’re all alone?
I know I have. I’ve been there. In the midst of the darkness. Stumbling around trying to find my way out. But the clouds are so dark it’s hard to make sense of anything. It’s hard to see the path of where I’m trying to go. Barely able to see the next step. Struggling to hold on. Ready to let go. Give up.
If you’ve been there or are currently there, know you are not alone. Reach out. Talk to someone.
Isolation isn’t the answer. in fact, isolation will be the death of us. It separates us from the light, from the love, from the help we so desperately need.
Yet why is it that isolation usually seems to be our “go to” when were experiencing darkness?
Read more about why we fear our darkness here.
Are we afraid of what others will think when they hear our struggles?
Are we to ashamed & filled with guilt that we cast ourselves out of the tribe?
I think we turn to isolation because of shame, guilt, fear & judgments.
We feel shame & guilt therefore we judge ourselves so harshly and we are afraid others will do the same to us. So in order to protect ourselves we isolate ourselves from all of those around us.
When in reality we should SURROUND ourselves even more with those who love us. Open up. Get raw & vulnerable. BE REAL.
The saying “it takes a village to raise a child” is so true. But what’s even more true is that we continually need to be a part of that village to thrive as we grow.
It’s the lone wolf that doesn’t make it, where as the pack gets stronger and stronger together.
If you’re in the midst of darkness, reach out to someone. Call a friend, a family member. Reach out on our Facebook group. Needing something deeper and wanting breakthroughs? Book a Heart To Heart session by going here.
Whatever it is you do, don’t isolate yourself. Surround yourself with people who love you.
You have a choice, right here in this moment. To continue sitting in this darkness, or to get up and turn on the light!
