You are not alone. You are loved.
I want to make that clear from the beginning–this is a blog that will speak the most to those who, like me, feel lonely and unlovable. Those feelings are valid and real–but they are not the whole truth. However lonely you feel, you are never alone; however unlovable you perceive yourself to be, you are loved. Through a mixture of prose and poetry, touching on faith and spirituality, mental health, politics, gender and sexuality, and even sci-fi/fantasy, these truths will be held in tension—feelings of loneliness and unlovability with the deep knowledge of never being alone and always being loved.
We are not alone. We are loved.

More than through anger or lust for power, the dark enters through despair. Through the belief that, in the end, there is nothing but pain and sorrow and death, and that nothing we do truly matters. I’m here to tell you that we do matter. And that despair is an illusion that the dark casts before our eyes.
