When you hit rock bottom, you feel like you’re underwater
Fighting for your way out,
Struggling to breathe
Wondering if you will survive.
There’s an anchor attached to you, making it impossible to leave even though you know if you stay here any longer, you’ll surely harm yourself.
All of a sudden, a lifeboat is driving toward you.
There’s a person, asking, begging you to talk to them.
You tell them things you’ve never told anyone.
Slowly you feel the anchor loosening.
You feel yourself floating up to the surface,
The lifeboat with you all the way.
You emerge, gasping for air.
The lifeboat person is there, helping you.
You feel safe.
You’re no longer trapped, trapped in your own thoughts.
No-one can hurt you anymore.
