We hear this statement many times but we never really think of it. What does it mean? Is it a good thing or a bad thing that there is a light at the end of the tunnel?
This statement is actually a very hopeful one. It means that if you are going through a really dark tunnel and can barely see anything, you’ll always find a light at the end of the tunnel that would lead you outside it. If we applied this statement to our lives, it would mean that every dark phase has an end leading to a better one. Whenever we have a dark chapter in our lives, we will have a brighter one afterwards. How many times we felt so down that we convinced ourselves that the rest of our lives would be as dark as this time!
Whenever you feel sad and blue just tell yourself that tomorrow is going to be a better day. And that you have the strength to make your coming days more cheerful. Allow yourself to have something to be looking forward to; that might be a dinner with a friend, waiting for a good movie to come out or visiting your parents in the weekend, anything that would distract you from thinking of the dark tunnel that you might be at right now.
REMEMBER there is always a light at the end of the tunnel, there is always an exit from a dark long tunnel. This light is hope, excitement and ambitious. Let those things drive towards the light.
