It is so much easier to be blind to our lives; our obligations, our weaknesses, our failures, fears of the past coming back to haunt us, fears of the future not living up to our dreams, fear to act. It is easier to live in darkness, embracing ignorance

This reminds me of a boyfriend who just broke up with me for the second time. I am ready for the light.
