The inner workings of my mind and heart

“It is one thing to know that Jesus Christ came to earth to die for us. But we also need to appreciate that the Lord desires, through His atonement and by the power of the Holy Ghost, to enliven us – not only to guide us but also to strengthen and heal us”
— Elder David A. Bednar (via thestraitandnarrow)

I wish our friendship hadn’t had to end the way it did. I know that in my attempt to help all I accomplished was pushing you away. I was blind and ignorant to what I was actually doing. And so you did what you did, and even though it is painful to see our friendship end, you made the correct choice. And even though I cannot correct my mistakes I have made sure that I will never again do to anyone else what I did to you, even if I have to remain a lone and wounded wolf, the scars I keep fresh remind me of the pain I caused you. I hope one day you can forgive me but until that day I will stay in my exile and personal hell. And if that day ever appears I hope we can be friends once again. Goodbye until we meet again.

80 seconds is all it will take to change your perspective when “there appears to be no light at the end of the tunnel, no sunrise to end the night’s darkness.”
