Sometimes, darkness takes over all of us. Sometimes, you are just a little child, hiding under the bed, thinking the evil won’t find you there. Sometimes, there are no escapes. Sometimes, thinking of slitting a wrist, bleeding out a few drops and ending it once and for all, are the only thoughts that run through your mind.
Life wasn’t ever meant to be easy. It was not supposed to be a game, where before the first chapter you have a choice to select the difficulty level. It is called life, it is called a game, but one that runs only in the veteran mode. Once you are out, you don’t respawn, you start from the top. Or probably, you don’t even get to start over.
But at times like this, it is worth thinking. Do you really want to quit or stay in the fight like you always have? And is there only one way to quit? Or there are more way and more routes, and one probably even leads you back to your goal.
At times, the pain does exceed the pride, and sometimes it is not worth fighting for, but that doesn’t mean you must give up the fight completely. Even the fiercest of the fights were won after a little retreat. When the conditions are adverse, take a step back, hold on to your life and battling power for the time being and wait for reinforcements, and then you strike again. Don’t fall and forget, fall a few steps back to pounce, you must strike.
” We must never give up the fight, the moment we do, we have lost.” – Ezio Auditore da Firenze
