“Just keep going and hold on
to those little slivers of light you find.”
In this moment, I need to exhale all this smoke that’s been building inside of me. All those insults, negativity, and hurtful things thrown at me only seemed to stick like sludge on a wall. It remained there, taunting me. Spreading ever so slightly. I need to let it all go. To let it all fly away and dissipate into nothingness. This respire, right now, is all that matters to me. And during that, I’ll keep reminding myself that all will be okay. Just keep going and hold on to those little slivers of light you find.
