“Pain is a debt paid off with time.”
A video created by Will Darbyshire with an excerpt from Reasons to Stay Alive by Matt Haig.
I first watched this sometime in early 2016. I knew these reasons were true but in such a place of darkness, I had a hard time staying… because a part of me couldn’t hear the clock ticking and I just couldn’t believe in the gifts of time. I still struggle with this. All I can tell myself now is wait… and maybe.
Things like this are never easy to say. But it’s a start.
