    When is the darkest hour?

    I think the darkest hour is the last hour of a person's life.

    I consider the darkest hour of my mom's life when she was lying and dying on my father's lap and I with my two sisters was standing in front of them.

    The darkest hour for an individual, I believe, comes when you recognize/admit/accept that we aren't who we portray we are.

    It often comes at a time when people close to us make the connection... see our actions, hear our thoughts, and realize we aren't who they thought we were. Turning their world around.

    Its when we know we have been seen. We can hide our faults from ourselves, we can even deny we have any at all. We can find other things (religion,drugs,alcohol,sex,sports,gambling) to hide behind. People can even know us as an addict, but, not know why. It is the shame and guilt that pushes us to portray ourselves in a light we think is more like-able to others.

    But the moment we concede, the moment we have no choice but to admit who we are, to accept we have been fraudulent all this time, to give in and let it be known... for many this is the darkest hour.

    It is also, ironically, the brightest hour of our lives. To be free of all the lies, disgust, anger, shame, and to grab on to the real us. Freedom... finally.

    The darkest hour is that hour right after you realize something bad has happened and your coming to terms with it...a sudden death of someone close...or an unrepairable event that can not have the outcome changed...no matter how much your heart would want it. That is the darkest hour...when the reality first hits!

    There's no particular darkest hour as long as this earth exists, but presently i may say that the darkest hour was on thursday the 26th of june 2009 at 2;26 pm, the day Michael Jackson gave up, was the darkest hour for his mourners.

    For me, the darkest hour was when I thought I was nothing..... I 'thought' I had no-one.....my world had been turned upside down literally and my 'life' as I knew it was no more; it was when I truly contemplated ending my life as I could not see a future for myself; I felt the whole world had turned on me and I felt all the people that I loved and 'thought' loved me would be far better off if I was no longer in their lives......
    It was when I looked down the end of a loaded gun and pulling the trigger seemed more inviting then the sunny day outside......my darkest hour was a scattered mess of tears, self-hatred, despair, helplessness and loneliness - argh, loneliness being the ultimate in my darkest hour, loneliness can make normally smart, rational, sensible & caring persons a shadow of themselves.....
    When is the darkest hour?.....when the loneliness ghost is your only friend, and she is a friend that no-one truly needs.
    I beat my darkest hour at her own game.  Inner strength & a self-respect shone through, I did not pull that trigger, I won because as it turns out the darkest hour WILL slowly, but surely vanish, to the dawn of another bright & exciting day!

    I feel that the darkest hour is determined by the brightest hour.  Without the possibility of comparison every hour would be the darkest hour and the brightest hour simultaneously.

    When there is no more hope left anywhere in you. When you think that everyone would be better off if you were dead.When NO ONE will take your side and you know it's all your fault that your alone because of your terrible behavior that might never be forgiven. Your sad, alone, homeless, and wish that you were never born because life has just been one diapointment after another because you suffer from panic disorder, anxiety attacks, social phobia, and seperation anxiety and the only relief you get is by using drugs (not the ones your shrink gives you).When your lying on an old nasty matress and haven't showered or eaten in days and a dog pisses on your back and your so damn depressed you just lie there wishing you were dead.

    When you think everyone is leaving you and there is no value of you. Apart from this problems may arise in your life and you will keep solving your problems on your own.I think you have already solved  many of your problems since your childhood. But the problems lies in your mind can be very destructive and take you to the darkest hours of your life.
