Lights Out

Photo taken by first-time contributor Diana Colapietro, a 21-year-old woman from New York, New York who struggles with anxiety and panic attacks. In the fall of Diana’s senior year of college, she began experiencing panic attacks on a regular basis. She had a hard time talking about what she was feeling and giving any outward indication that something was wrong. Diana copes with her challenges by putting all of her energy into helping others.

About this photo: “Lights Out was inspired by the work of Broken Light Collective after seeing the magnificent work that is published and the positive influence it has not only on the contributors, but also to people simply searching for something/someone to relate to and not feel so alone. It reminds me that as much as I try to be a light for other people, it’s not always possible when there are things I need to take care of within myself first.

    Compelling photo. I like how the intact one looks like it experienced implosion, which is what happens when incandescent lights go out. Balance is needed in life.

  2. So true, Diana. We can’t pour from an empty cup, right? Beautiful image.

    When panic strikes the anticipated catastrophe appears to be the most likely. The probability, likelihood of no such thing happening never appeals to the mind, whereas this is the first thing those who are free from panic have recourse to.
