The darkness is a trick, stopping you from the greatness you were meant to be, and the happiness that you will never get to see.
And greatness doesn't have to be world-wide famous, but simply inner peace, loving yourself for who you are — happiness, making a positive difference in your own life, and just waking up to enjoy a day, good or bad, but you're here, with us!

Focusing on what you can control is the first part of happiness. What is in your control: living, and not committing suicide. Then take each day at a time, live for the day, without overwhelming yourself about tomorrow, next week, next month, or next year. You'll start to notice "time" in each day, how valuable every minute is — because you are here with us, and how to make the most of time. Even if time is spent just to sit in peace or reaching out to someone to be at peace. Time is your most valuable asset, in your control, that no one can take away from you. Time is something we want you to have. "Darkness" is only a temporary part of time, a time in life that everyone goes through.
Don't assume no one will understand whatever it is you are going through. This is why calling 988 or 800-273-8255 is so important, so that your time with us is not taken away.

Thanks for your comment. Yes, addictions can, and do, lead to suicide attempts. However, unresolved trauma is one of the most common causes of suicide – bullying, child abuse and/or rape, violence against others witnessed, extreme poverty, human trafficking and general public safety neglect. It's the unresolved traumas that civic leaders need to focus on, especially for today's children witnessing crime after crime against their fellow students - either in class or at home with family or non-family. Because if it's not suicide, it's murder at the hands of apathetic persons.
I was just reading about Larry Price Jr.: https://popular.info/p/the-untimely-death-of-larry-price. Mr. Price's death was not suicide. Mr. Price was a person who suffered from mental illness, because of a traumatic childhood incident, that caused his mind to split, and left him in chaos, without one adult to help him get counseling needed. Each day Mr. Price lived, cried out, but no one cared to hear him. Even when held in prison without bail, Mr. Price cried out for help, but was ignored.
We need to change the culture of civic leaders, to recognize when those are in need, get the help needed, and call and vote out those leaders who fail to help. We also need to hold leaders accountable when toxic persons are hired, persons who ignore or toy with basic well-being of others, while calling themselves "pro-life," a "hero," or "community leader." Else, we are failing an entire generation, which is running out of options as equal jobs, housing and education are all becoming unattainable goals, leading to more and more suffering of others.
But your link will remain here with this post, and added to the bottom of post as well. Again, thanks for sharing. 🙂
