“When your worried thoughts
keep you company, how do you respond?
That’s what defines you.”

It’s about the invisible parts. Those dangers we cannot see. In the light. Or in the dark. Those are the monsters that whisper. Those are the demons that lurk in the shadows. They are the invisible bullets that hit us right in the heart with perfect precision. They are the same ones that haunt us all when we are left alone with nothing more than our thoughts. They are the same ones that know how to keep us awake. How to make us worry. But at the same time, they are nothing more than fleeting thoughts of busy minds. It’s a question of what they say to you when you are the one alone in the night. In the dark. With just your worried thoughts to keep you company. It’s a question if how or if you respond. It’s a question of what you do next. That’s what defines you.
