Dark Days Are Followed with Bright Ones

Trigger warning: this piece discusses themes of anxiety.

I had a BAD day yesterday. Full of triggers and wanting to give up.

But I fought through and kept my head up, holding onto the little hope I had. It wasn’t much, but I kept doing what I needed to do. Go for a walk, bike ride, having some of my favourite foods. I even sat on a swing for a little bit.

The day ended with me talking to a helpline. I just needed to vent and let out how overwhelming and anxiety provoking everything was.

I was doing everything I could just to get through yesterday. I even said things like, “Even the darkest night will end, and the sun will rise again.”

Fast forward to today and I woke up feeling great! Today, I don’t feel like ending things and I’m feeling amazing.

This is proof to show that dark days end and the sun always rises again. You won’t feel like this forever. You may not feel better in one night, but you WILL feel better eventually.

So, keep your head up and keep fighting!

You can do this!

I believe in you!

All my love,

- Zara
