18 Signs You Are Experiencing A Dark Night Of The Soul, Otherwise Known As An Existential Crisis Avatar

12. AT 1ST, THIS REVELATION OF TRUE SUFFERING IS OVERWHELMING BUT WON'T BE FOR LONG:
Feeling this at first will make you want to get up and change as much as you can, though of course, you are not responsible for alleviating all of the world's pain.
You will eventually figure out what your role is in helping and healing. In the meantime, you'll become a more patient and understanding person, even towards strangers.
Learning long ago that the only person that I can heal is myself, I have chosen to minister to those people that The Good Lord puts directly in my path and nurture them as much as I can with spiritual and financial abundance.
Quite honestly, I still have a lot to grow in the patience and understanding paradigm, because of the millennial virus that has spread from the United States throughout the world; causing much of my fellow man to be narcissistic, egotistic and to not give a damn about simple courtesy and not striving for excellence even though they are being paid for it.
13. YOUR SLEEPING HABITS ARE IRREGULAR, YOU ARE HUNGRIER THAN USUAL OR NOT HUNGRY AT ALL; AND SOMETIMES ARE SO OVERWHELMED BY EMOTION THAT YOU FEEL THAT YOU CANNOT FUNCTION:
The most important thing to remember during a dark night of the soul is that you must get more rest than usual.
You need to take it easy. Your whole body is recalibrating, and it's only natural that you're going to have some (perhaps literal) growing pains.
Now almost 8 month's away from my White Knight, my sleeping and eating habits are as normal as they have ever been.
But just this last Friday after a severely physical and emotionally exhausting and stressful afternoon, during my weekly Thai massage I felt that I was leaving my body again; evidential proof that this spiritual toxic removing process is continuing.
Thank God and "excuse me while I kiss the sky!"
