The term ‘dark night of the soul’ is often overused to refer to any sort of low point experienced by people going through their spiritual awakening, but I think it’s important to acknowledge this is a much more significant milestone than a few days of feeling down. The dark night of the soul feels like hitting absolute rock bottom, it’s devastating, and it can be a very serious and lonely period of suffering.
If you are going through something like this please reach out, to anyone. You may need professional help to overcome this stage of your journey, and I will readily admit that I did. It was the darkest part of my life, something I felt powerless over but in hindsight, I can now see it was the best thing that ever happened to me. Going through my dark night of the soul turned my life upside down, which was terrifying to go through, but set me on this path of spiritual awakening, transformed the person I was into the person I am now, which has made me happier than I have ever been and grateful that I don’t have the life I thought I wanted.
