There are people who are afraid; afraid of the dark forces that control us like puppets. There are people who have given up and surrendered themselves to the darkness. There are people who pass fake smiles and pretend that they are just like the rest of us, when they know something’s killing them from inside, dismantling them brick by brick as if they are not people but subjects. There are people who try to hide themselves from shit storms. There are people who are lost in the time loop. There are people who hate themselves. There are people trying to be human by fighting their inner monsters.
But sometimes, you don’t have to be in their shoes to understand what they’re going through. Sometimes, all you need to do is be there for them and say the magic words,” It’s all okay.”
