  • Sometimes, lost in the illusion of the deepest darkness, we forget our light leads others from that same despair. We forget our weakest moments give strength and comfort to those who look so good but are so broken. Sometimes we forget that those who betray us are starved by their fear and paralyzed by our pain. Sometimes we need to look into the eyes of love to see our worth and trust that reflection until the mirror speaks the truth that we are always loved and lovable.
