They creep in at night, under your sheets, through the barred or open windows, in the silence just when you think everything is fine. They disrupt your serenity and upset you without you ever truly comprehending why. And your mood changes indefinitely, depriving you from the ability to control even that.
Intruders are sneaky. They invade your mind when you least expect it.
They cause you to lose sleep and ruffle the sheets, tossing and turning in bed, waking up even more tired than the night before and much more depressed. But the worst part is, you can’t explain why.
Intruders plant thoughts in your head and make you anxious, jealous, skeptical, suspicious.
They cause you to draw scenarios that to an outsider may seem insane but to you, at the moment, may seem perfectly rational.
They result in you becoming a little more bitter, more cynical, more irritable.
And all you really need is some reassurance that you are not as crazy as you believe; that everything is and will continue to be fine.
You need that strong, warm embrace that will carry you into a peaceful sleep, forgetting everything else and enabling you to wake up and face another day stronger.
You want to get rid of those intruders. But sometimes you can’t do it alone.
