I was once given a box full of darkness. Someone I loved gave it to me, too. The darkness was actually disillusionment, disappointment, and despair. The box was full of meanness, lies, and deceit. The first thing I did with this box was glorify it. I gave it pride of place in my emotional world. I let it consume my thoughts, my heart, and my mind. Every so often, when I was feeling at my most vulnerable, I opened it up and peered into the darkness, where I would wail and cry in despair, pitying myself for being dealt such a dark and horrible blow. Time passed, and I found myself opening the dark box less often. Sometimes, I was just too busy with other things to spend the time I knew the darkness required. Other times, I simply didn’t have the energy to deal with all those dark emotions. Eventually, I was just bored with the dark box and it’s perpetual whining. Then came the day that my thoughts drifted toward the darkness, and I realized the dark box was no longer there. For a few frenzied moments, my mind searched for it, but I simply could not conjure it up. A deep sigh of relief welled within me, and I knew the darkness was gone for good. In it’s place was a very quiet sense of understanding. peace, and forgiveness, a sensation that I had never before known, but one I wanted very much to store up and treasure. At one time or another, life will hand each one of us a box full of darkness. It’s important to keep that box around for a while – but not for too long. Buried deep inside this box is a wealth of insight, compassion, and self-awareness. When you dig deeply enough to reach this layer, you’ve found the real buried treasure – the true gift that’s hidden in the darkness.
" someone i loved once gave me a box full of darkness . i took me years to understand that, this too, was a gift ."
Hello my wise young friend....those words are so touching, and I have pondered on them many of times on my journey of life, oh the life, it is never as we imagined it to be and it never goes to our plans, so don't make plans.....just do what makes you happy, take along the people that make you feel good, and you them... expect nothing, live simply ...if you really wanted to be somewhere you would be there and you are not there you were not meant to be there in the first places, your place is where you put yourself in life......

I haven't uploaded in a while just because I haven't really had time to draw something that I'm happy with. And, thankfully, Everything with that person is finally settled. He's kept his distance and I'm very happy for that.
I'm kind of with someone right now. Took a while, but he was worth the wait .
