“But perhaps the monsters needed to look out for each other every now and then.”
― Sarah J. Maas, Queen of Shadows
Many of my closest associates are deeply wounded from battles, both physically and psychologically. Only those who have walked in similar darkness, along their own dangerous paths, can comprehend their issues.
And so we have each others’ backs.
We look out for our brothers and sisters, because normal people haven’t seen these things and so will never “get it.” Even if our battles are different, the veterans of the psychic wars recognize each other and appreciate what the others have gone through. We look for the subtle signals that indicate the hidden struggles and quietly say “I got you.”
If you have been in the battles, have walked in the darkness, be not afraid to reach out to others that have fought the same fights because we all need someone to have our six at times.
