Photo taken by contributor Captivating Bitter, a woman in her thirties who has struggled with anxiety and depression for most of her life. She has survived emotional abuse, sexual abuse and rape. She has survived suicide attempts and years of self-harm. After wandering her way through life unable to trust and barely feeling alive, she is now fighting to live a healthy life. She has been reading, journaling, blogging and working hard to heal. She is finally taking care of herself and starting to feel better.
About this photo: “I love it when the world starts to turn dark; when everything quiets down and the sounds of wind and birds and creaking reeds begin to serenade me. I love the sounds of night birds just starting their calls and the hum of feral energy that welcomes the coming night.”
