My gratitude extends to the darkness.
Without the darkness I would no be able to see the light.
Without my looking at that which I do not want I would not be able to create that which I so desire.
Without my experiencing the pain I would not be able to experience the bliss.
Without imprisonment I would never be able to experience the ecstatic quality of freedom.
“I have to keep facing the darkness. If I stand tall and face the thing I fear, I have a chance to conquer it. If I just keep dodging and hiding it will conquer me.” ― Mary Pope Osborne
