"The point of demons is not to silence them. Silencing something does not
make it go away, and nothing stays quiet forever. You must sprint, head
first into your demons, look them straight in the eye, and say "I am
the captain now." The point is to tell them who is boss. When you have
thrived in and conquered your darkness, and the parts of yourself that
you keep secret, you allow the light to radiate from your finger tips
and blast the self loathing and desperation they inflict on your soul.
You turn your demons into your lessons, you ace those suckers, and you
live your life like the boss ass bitch that you are."
