Why Living In Darkness Is Sometimes Easier

Why Living In Darkness Is Sometimes Easier

Isn’t it so crazy how the energies around us can affect us?

Isn’t it so crazy how once you stop inviting that negative energy into your life, good things come?

When negativity comes knocking on your door (and let’s face it, it always does), don’t answer. Do not let it in.

Perhaps we end up opening the door, and thus, opening ourselves up to it because it’s comfortable. Being negative is easier than being positive. Letting yourself be sad is easier than making an effort to be happy. Because when bad things happen to us, it’s easier to blame it on the horrible circumstances rather than to fight through it and persevere.

I too was once comfortable with the darkness. Funny enough, I’m actually scared of the dark. But somehow, in some weird and twisted way, I found more comfort in the darkness than the light. I felt more at home swimming in a pool of tears than running toward the path of happiness.

Why is that?

Because [highlight]the path toward happiness is unknown[/highlight]. It’s scary. It’s not open for business 24/7. The dark tunnel, however, has a drive-thru window ready for your order.

What we don’t seem to realize is that happiness too is ready for our order. The universe will give it to you — just not on demand. You have to work at it every single day and you have to fight for it the same way you would work towards getting that beach body or the promotion at your job. You have to really want it and be ready for it.

We know what to expect when we bring the negativity, but we don’t know what’s on the other side because it comes in so many different forms, so many different trials and tribulations and so many areas far away from our comfort zones. And that’s scary. Really fucking scary.

It’s scary to believe everything is good because our brains have been wired into believing that when it’s too good to be true, it usually is.
