Stuck in the dark?

Q: I feel stuck in the dark about my life—frustrated, hopeless, afraid. Help.

A: We think of darkness and light as being two sides of the same coin, but are they? For a planet, the answer is yes. But not for a ray of sunlight. To the ray of sunlight there is no darkness. Its entire identity is light.
