Trauma sends you into a deep spiral of darkness. One that you’ve never known to exist.
Trauma pushes you to survival mode and tests your strength. It breaks you down like a tiny pebble in your shoe that’s been stuck there for years.
It’ll just keep you going down and down and down until you hit rock bottom and go down even more.
Until one day… it’s like someone taps you on the shoulder and you turn around to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
It’s actually been there all along. You just didn’t realise it because you were walking the wrong way. The way you’ve been walking for 7 years straight.
You’ve been so used to the same thing. Day in and day out. That’s as soon as you realise there is something new.
You stop. You’re afraid of what all this newness brings. You’re not sure if that’s what you want to do. You’re not even sure of yourself.
But there is no where else to go. So you trust the light. And go ahead to follow.
Knowing that the person you are… will never be again.
