Stay Bright

“Dearest one, this façade doesn’t fool me.
Don’t you see how much we need your light?”

Oh, my dearest one, this façade you’ve built doesn’t fool me. I see the pain in your heart, the cracks in your soul. I see the light dimming in your eyes, while the rest of the world is too blind to see the truth. If I could count your tears and replace every one with something beautiful, would you see how much this world needs your light?

I always see the light in you.

  1. I love this so much. As someone who has struggled forever with depression and has been friends with many who do as well, I can relate to both saying similar things and having them said to me.
