In the midst of your sadness, do you sometimes recall happier days & feel hopeful about what lies ahead?

Life is a series of ebbs and flows. The best is yet to come, please believe it.
not really, but some Khalil Gibran has been useful.

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses
your understanding.

Even as the stone of the fruit must break, that its
heart may stand in the sun, so must you know pain.

And could you keep your heart in wonder at the
daily miracles of your life, your pain would not seem
less wondrous than your joy;

And you would accept the seasons of your heart,
even as you have always accepted the seasons that
pass over your fields.

And you would watch with serenity through the
winters of your grief.

Much of your pain is self-chosen.

It is the bitter potion by which the physician within
you heals your sick self.

Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy
in silence and tranquillity:

For his hand, though heavy and hard, is guided by
the tender hand of the Unseen,

And the cup he brings, though it burn your lips, has
been fashioned of the clay which the Potter has
moistened with His own sacred tears.

I tend to live in happier moments of the past. Not time periods.. as in not high school (that sucked), but maybe that one certain friend that I miss. My mind has pulled out the good from the bad and dwells on that.

Ask me again in 10 years if the best was really yet to come.

Yeah, it's easier for me. But some days it's really hard to see positives...
I don't recall the past but I know life always has light to offer. Always.
