There is always light at the end of the tunnel
Tunnel Quotes (26 quotes)
2012 - One more step to fall
No matter what you're going through, there's a light at the end of the tunnel and it may seem hard to get to it but you can do it and just keep working towards it and you'll find the positive side of things. The test of character is not persistence when you expect a light at the end of the tunnel. The true test is performance and persistence when you see no light coming. Greater is he who suffers through the pain and comes through the other side improved. Greater is he who accepts discouragement and keeps forward momentum, never retreating. Greater is he who sees the light at the end of the tunnel and keeps their eye on the light.

Yet the tunnel fills us with a darkness so deep, we are left breathless, hopeless and lost in our suffering. The darkness can suck all the life out of you, and take you further than feeling lost, desolate, disconsolate — sadly some are nipped or engulfed by thoughts of suicide. Suffering alone makes the whole experience of despair deeper. There is help available, and there are those who do understand. The light at the end of the tunnel is no illusion; the tunnel is.
I am writing this piece because it is something that I am not afraid to speak about and I feel it may be of benefit to somebody out there. I believe my story is extremely unique and if my story can help even one person in any way, shape or form… then it would take away some of the discomfort that I have looking back. My mother and father separated when I was around 5 years old and I resided with my mother so I mainly relied on her for guidance in life. My Dad was somewhat an alcoholic and therefore I did not really have a good relationship with him so I have always lacked that fatherly guidance that most people are blessed with. My mum was in an unstable relationship and I would often end up in confrontation with her partner which would result in me staying with my Dad until he had enough of me and then I would go and live with my auntie or whoever else would take me in.
