#30DaysChallenge - Day 7 --I got through the night.

There's a song that I was recently given called Courage by SuperChick. It's the kind of music I like, thought provoking and meaningful. It's also one that's stuck with me and when things get really shitty I hear the lyrics in my head. This weekend I heard it on repeat, every waking moment.

But there are days when I'm not okay
And I need your help
So I'm letting go

For me, letting go is telling people I'm not ok. That I have that indescribable feeling of spiralling downwards. I have two people I tell first off and they may not be the ones that people would expect me to tell. But I tell them because somehow they know the right things to say.

I need you to know
I'm not through the night
Some days I'm still fighting to walk towards the light

Once they know I can tell others. I can find the courage to get past my fears and tell my friends where I am at. Because no matter how much progress I have made, I am still getting to the next level and it's ok to take a step back as long as it's not permanently back into the Twilight Zone...

I have friends who will say something like this:

I need you to know
That we'll be okay
Together we can make it through another day

Which lets me know that I can say this to you... 

You should know you're not on your own
These secrets are walls that keep us alone
I don't know when but I know now
Together we'll make it through somehow

Because I have people who say it to me and mean it. And I know it's true. 

I found perspective on the sea shore, in the words of the song and in your words.
Hand in hand with you.
Never alone.
