    This was beautiful. I had to read it slowly to get the full meaning and affect of it. Thanks for sharing!

    That’s deep. Reminds me to slow down, be more reflective and keep the main thing the main thing.

    *endless finger snaps* lol I love this! Short and powerful! It’s funny I stumbled across this today bc I have a fear of lighting matches thanks to a bad childhood experience but that made me fascinated whenever someone lit one and how it ‘struggles to stay lit- this is what came to mind when you asked about the struggle being reflected in the light. People don’t see your pain unless they look closely. I’m waffling now but this is great!’

      Thank you, Tisha! I’m sorry to hear about your bad experience. I totally agree with this: “People don’t see your pain unless they look closely.” Couldn’t have said it better myself.
