Most people in the world are afraid of the darkness especially when they are alone. One research has shown that 11% of America’s population is afraid of darkness.
We are afraid of the dark because it is a little strange. When we are alone in the darkness, we feel that someone will come and harm us.
But we do not understand the darkness properly. The truth is that one meaning of darkness is peace and loneliness.
Because when we sleep, we are with darkness. And then our body and our minds find peace. So we can also say that darkness gives us peace.
We cannot deny the darkness because darkness is an important part of our life like a light. Because if we get to live only in day time all year, then we will get upset.
Because if we stay in more light then we will not get peace and we will come into depression.
We will not be able to live at all. We all need the day as well as the night. So both are important.
Another meaning of darkness is sorrow, pain and loneliness. When someone gets away from us whom we love so much, then our colorful life becomes glassy and dark.
If I tell the truth, it is not so easy to understand the darkness. So let’s try to understand the mystery of darkness with some famous thinkers and philosophers’ quotes.
