Do not fear depth
The darkness can be frightening
But the sea cleanses itself.
It can hold you.
It can hold your darkness–
And cleanse you of it
If you’re open to receiving the gift.
Nothing is more true than this for me. I feel so much joy and am my true self in the sea. And every time I leave the sea I feel more grounded, present, and at peace with myself and the world. Things that held power over me and dragged me down no longer matter. When I’m away from the sea and feeling down, sometimes swimming laps as fast as I can will suffice to have rage and other uncomfortable feelings leave me. Nothing works as well as swimming for me. It may not be exactly the same for you, but if you are looking to cope with anxiety or any other uncomfortable emotion, it is definitely worth a shot. Swimming just a couple times a week allows me to function so so much better.
