The darkness sucks. If you have ever dealt with self-doubt, anxiety, depression, melancholy, bad vibes, or whatever you want to call it, then you have danced with the darkness. It can be an all-consuming blanket that smothers the days, weeks, months, and sometimes years that make up our lives. Perhaps, it is just a passing thought that is fleeting but leaves a haunting stain on your soul. Or the bastard digs its claws in and stays a good long while even if you don’t want it to, like a visiting mother-in-law. Any way you slice it, the darkness sucks. And I am tired of it in my life!
