'1.Don’t let your past haunt you, bury the ghosts you are lugging around in your heart.
2.Claw your way out of the trough, you may splutter and choke on your misery, but remember to come up for air – keep breathing. I promise it’ll stop feeling like your ribs are about to crack and collapse from the effort.
3.Do not fear the future – it doesn’t matter if its edges are blurry; just don’t let the spectre of despair lurk in its shadows.
4.Create, create, create – paint the sorrow in sprawling brushstrokes of black, grey and red, green till the colours fuse into a yellow that reminds you of sunshine; hum a melancholy tune till you’re bellowing a tune that whistles through your bones and makes trails of electricity run across your skin; bleed the squiggling emotions onto paper till they trip over one another and clarity of thought takes precedence over chaos – creation is the flickering flame of sanity in the dark cave of sadness.
5.It’s okay to feel lost – let yourself wander – all roads lead to somewhere. The trick to finding yourself is to keep walking.
6.You don’t have to handle your sadness alone, there are people who love you, who can make light sift through the darkest of days, hold these people close.
7.Remember that it’ll pass – every emotion is temporary. Change is the only constant.
