You Are Beautiful

The darkness will close in. The pain will come. The emptiness, loneliness, and hopelessness will arise. You will be engulfed, overwhelmed with feelings and emotions.

We experience so many feelings and emotions throughout the day. We have approximately 60,000-80,000 thoughts in a twenty-four hour period.
