Dark Night of the Soul

“The feeling of being overwhelmed and torn apart, prepares you for new ideas and a fresh start. Your dark night may provide you with an opportunity to discover your toughness. You can see the point of staying in the dark is not to trick it into making you brilliant or germ free, but to make you a more interesting person and to give you a more fascinating life. Rather than giving you a spotless, well-adjusted personality, they give you substance.”

-Thomas Moore, Dark Night of the Soul
