He says, there’s not enough people writing about the “beautiful” madness. Beautiful? The only thing that feels “beautiful” about madness is when you get through it. When you can look back and say, I made it. I’m still standing. And I didn’t ruin everyone else around me in the process. Now, that’s beautiful. When you’re IN it…not so much. I understand how it can help ease fear, but the truth is, at times, it’s painful. It hurts. It’s scary. It’s uncomfortable. But that’s why you look to the light to help you get through it. THAT LIGHT is what’s beautiful. That light within you.
