  • I have been there too. At the edge of the abyss contemplating my fall into nothingness, leaving behind the pain that sometimes was too much to bear. I had been in the middle of a black despair where there were not more doors to open and all the ones left were close to my crying and my fear. I was ready to jump so many times, tired of the valleys and mountains of this life. In some times like those, when the hopes had died were only dark valleys scaring my soul. I was there my friend, thinking" jump now and you will be transformed in a particle of eternal sleep”. No more wake up fearing the mornings because they meant I had to be awake. No more feeling so alone in the world, so lost, alien to life.But I did not jump because I was stronger that I knew because I was greater than I felt and as a famous person said "it is easy to hide in the shadows than to shine in the light" And I choose light because we dream lives’ of fear or lives of peace. It is all in our mind even the wish to be death. I wished to be alive and I am here today.
