I talk to a lot of people who have good reasons to give up, reasons I can’t (and don’t) challenge. Often they’re right. Things are dark, the doors have closed, and the hands have slipped into their sleeves. It’s hard to see, let alone walk.
But there is always a way out.
The key to starting up again is not to pretend the darkness isn’t there, nor to feel the walls for a switch.
The key is to search for that tiny light inside you and fan the flames.
