Being active to me is THE answer to the moments in which darkness attacks us! This is and will always be my way out of it. The less we do, the more our brain loses defenses against our own demons, and they slowly prevail on us. The more we do, the more we keep ourselves busy, and consequently the more we find incentives to do more and to find at least something that gives us satisfactions (even if very little sometimes) and to move on from our darkness, not letting it overwhelm us. We need to have goals in life. We need to give ourselves a purpose. We need to be searching for something. The moment in which we lose all of this, is the moment in which we drop our shields. Fight against boredom. Fight against apathy. Give yourself goals and fight for them…and you’ll always have a purpose in life to give you the drive.
