I take her hand, and I lead her through the darkness—not because she is weak, but because she is weary of being strong; not because she is helpless, but because she yearns for my help, and I so long to give it; not because she is lost in the silken shroud of the ebon night, but because I am lost, and in leading her, find a light within myself to guide our way.

This is beautiful.

You are not going in circles

You are making progress in a spiral. You do come back around to where you were at the start, since recovery and healing take time, but every time you come back around to that point you’re a little higher up because you’ve got more experience, more knowledge, and more strength.

You ARE making progress

this is the best fucking thing i have ever read.

Always making progress
