We want to reduce the ads on Newgrounds and need your help! If NG achieves 2,750 active Supporters this year, we'll remove all ads from rated E-M art view pages for the remainder of 2019 and hopefully forever. Supporters browse the entire site ad-free, something we hope the whole world can do some day!

PLEASE HELP US ACHIEVE THIS GOAL - BECOME A SUPPORTER TODAY!

Every time I fought with someone, every time I said terrible words and hurt as they hurt me...I wasn't getting stronger. I was growing weaker, losing parts of myself. I wasn't empowered, I was angry, I was miserable..I was scared. Every fight, every conflict, every anger and bitter resentment took a piece of myself until the cracks could be seen all over.

I will never look back on these moments fondly. I will never believe they were for the better or that they made me a person for the better. The future is you and me because it is here now. I hope when you look back, you will not regret but smile and hope forward.

I'm still growing, and just like you I'm only expanding as a person. Always will. I ask you however as my friend, as a good person...do your best today. Do your best tomorrow to show love, patience, understanding, and empathy to those that have chosen not to. For those of us who are so lost, it's a beacon, and it's dark where we come from.

I do agree. If you want dark there is none darker than the absolute that I hail from on occasion...a cave. True black, choking and all consuming. The peaceful warrior is the one who can sit alone in the void for he knows...he is only as permanent as he can last and that is not forever.
