There might be times when you feel overwhelmed because the darkness eclipses everything else.
These are the times when you search desperately everywhere for the solution.
Each time you try a new way, and it fails, you sink further and further down, until you don't believe there is any light anywhere.
That is a very tough place to be, and the only way to change these feelings is to put your trust in yourself, and believe you have the light inside you that will guide you in the right direction.
That might seem impossible, because when you're in the darkest of moods, you can't see clearly.
But it's the truth, and finding your inner light is your journey. Believing in yourself is how you build the courage to pull yourself out of the dark times. Nobody else can change how you feel. You can be supported, and guided, but the answers always lie with you.
It can be scary to think about that - but it's liberating, and empowering.
This is an ancient Sufi story:
A man was walking home late one night when he saw the Mulla Nasrudin searching under a street light on hands and knees for something on the ground. "Mulla, what have you lost?" he asked.
"The key to my house," Nasrudin said.
"I'll help you look," the man said.
Soon, both men were down on their knees, looking for the key.
After a number of minutes, the man asked, "Where exactly did you drop it?"
Nasrudin waved his arm back toward the darkness. "Over there, in my house."
The first man jumped up. "Then why are you looking for it here?"
"Because there is more light here than inside my house."
This illustrates how hopeless it is to keep searching outside of yourself. Looking inside yourself to make peace with the past, to be able to create a peaceful future is the most important thing you can do for yourself.
Every day, the sun rises to bring you light - it's always there. Exactly the same as the light inside you - it's always there.

"You can owe nothing, if you give back its light to the sun." ~ Antonio Porchia
