Sometimes it takes opening up in the most petrifying manner before Truth is visible to oneself.
Reflecting upon the miseries faced and caused, perhaps accepting where one is can result in the most tranquil sensations of peace.

Sometimes, a short lived experience, and then absence of, is meant to provide a new perspective.
Good or Bad, smile. It’s all a gift.
