It's okay to be sad, as much as it is okay to be happy. It's okay to cry, just as much as it is okay to laugh. It is okay to be ashamed as much as it is okay to be proud. For darkness cannot exist without the light. It is okay to want to die as much as it is okay to want to live. But let these moments pass, as slowly as they will, for they are only moments, significant or insiginificant, so you may laugh and forgive, live and love. Don't make these moments a choice, a cross to bear for the rest of your life. Let them slip out of your consciousness as they will, and let all that is beautiful, joy-giving in you, and around you reign over your consciousness again.
