Yes..he did climb out...but his belief and fear came from his need to save the people of Gotham...I have not got that many people to save. I wish I could save more...I wish I could save a lot of people on this forum...but I can't.

I am not strong. I would rather stay in the dark...
I also wish I could help out everyone here. but just because we can't help out everyone doesn't mean we can't try our best.

Also, since i'm a total comic book nerd, Batman also couldn't save everyone. He failed to save his parents, and his multiple "robin" sidekicks. But that doesn't mean you're not strong. Climb out of the pit and show people that they can do so, as well.

That's ok. I wish to bring as much peace and hope to as many people as I can in this life. The thought of all the people out there in the world makes things kind of overwhelming. Making a difference on a world scale is definitely not something I'm ruling out down the track...but for now, I can start helping just one person and the way they perceive the world.

My therapist says I am very good with using imagery and metaphors. So batman metaphors are actually helping funnily enough. So I'll stay with the theme.

I wish I had some purpose to die for. He didn't actually die, but the thought of it, fills me with power. You can see in the second and third films, he hides because he saw his purpose as fighting crime. Without the purpose he had nothing, without Rachel he thought he had no life, nothing to live for. It was based on a lie.

I see my only purpose as helping others. If I cannot do this my life becomes meaningless to me. I am without form, no purpose, no life. I put my self worth In the opinions of others. I hate knowing people dislike me. It's terrifying. In trying to better myself, I am not helping others, I am helping myself. I am being greedy, I am ignoring my perceived purpose...I am becoming nothing once more.

I have no pit to climb out of. I have no mask to put on. I have no martyrs cause to die for. I only have darkness.

And I am concerned Alice as your life is precious. I would not want you to go.

You have offered me help. That is the purest form of kindness, to help someone in their time of need. And I am very grateful. I would hope I can do all I can to help you as well. This is not one way.

Darkness is just the absence of light, which is impossible. One can't exist without the other.. If theres darkness, there must be a light that you can follow.

Well, why don't you find some new purpose to live for ? Make this purpose your desire to help others and dedicate yourself to it.
People disliked Batman but he didn't care..
You don't need a mask, all you need is a cause. and you have that cause.
You can make your desire to help other people, your own personal crusade. Once you do this, you'll find your way into the light.

But batman wasn't really liked. He was a vigilante and outlaw to the people. He didn't really get glory for the most part. Maybe we don't have such a noble cause as to protect a whole city. Batman, however, protects more than a city because he also protects people. Saving lives can be very simple. You can save lives on here. In the comics batman would invest lots of time into saving one persons life. A person he didn't even know. It doesn't take so much to be a hero. To be someone who can respect themselves. You don't even always have to succeed. Batman has failed but he never stopped trying. He never gave up on a person or his cause. In one comic he said he remembered his failures more than his victories. He remembered them because it meant he had to keep trying. He couldn't give up.

Darkness exists without light. Light cannot exist without the dark. It's not so much a metaphor for good and evil...more so simply a void. Stephen fry suggests it as a "Wall of sheer nothingness" and I am so afraid. The is simply dark. If I look towards light it hurts...I'd rather be comfortably miserable then hopefully crushed...

It's the change that I'm concerned about...or the mentality of the change. Because I've learned to have this train of thought, asking myself all the possible "what if's" and thinking about the negative over the positive. It's what I grew up with. It's what I know.

Change is inevitable. That is for certain...but whether I can survive it is another thing entirely

I fear I may be going between too many metaphors and my own feelings for my own writing here...sorry...

My head just kind of rushes at this point...my words sometimes get a little off..

Hearing you two talk reminds me to point out to you both- see how easy it is to give advice to others? This is because they are outside of you and you can clearly see that they have the potential to be ok. The other person feels the same about you. You see, it is so much easier to help others but not as much ourselves because we are IN the picture and therefore cannot see it clearly. In other words, you two are both strong and your kind words of encouragement prove that you both have what it takes to improve your situation. You just need the confidence :)
