My soul used to have a light, a spark.
But somewhere along the line, that part of me… disappeared. And maybe it has for you as well.
I don’t remember much from being a child, but I remember countless laughs.
Even when I can look back and pinpoint times when life was rough, I still found reasons to giggle and smile through it.
I know what it feels like to think that a part of you is missing like maybe you’re not even there.
It’s as if your soul has packed a bag and ran off in the middle of one of your sleepless nights.
I know how hopeless it feels as you search for the one thing you need when the energy to do so has walked away, too.
And that’s when we end up in that pit we can't seem to get ourselves out of.
You’re stuck. You don’t know what else to do.
But let me tell you something:
You will be okay. I say this out of hope because everything has to be okay, doesn’t it?
You will find yourself again because that’s the only way to keep going. It won’t be ending yourself or giving up completely.
There has to be a happy ending or just a happy day somewhere.
You’re missing a part of yourself because it’s trying to lead you to find that magic place in your life that will make you shine brighter than ever before.
That part you can’t find is out there in the world—you just have to search for the place that light in your soul has run off to and figure out why it's taken you there.
So go search mercilessly. Even if you are tired and want to quit searching, do it. Get other people to search with you and hold you up when you can’t take another step.
I have absolutely no idea when you’ll figure out where you’re at. I’m not going to promise it’ll be tomorrow, cause chances are it’s not.
But one day it’ll happen. Then, you’ll see that all those hard times and struggles were worth it.
You’ll have your light.
Right now it admittedly sucks. The road is dark and you can’t really see two feet ahead of you.
You’re definitely lost.
But all you have to do is take it one step at a time, and eventually, you'll find your way back to yourself.
