Hell is not a place you go after you die; hell is right there on earth. You can create your own hell or you can get drawn into somebody else’s hell if you are not careful with your choices.
Remember that you are always at choice. Even if you are in the darkest, dankest, most hellish prison on earth, you still choose your thoughts. Think of how prisoners of war were able to emerge victorious over their captors. Think of how wounded veterans can live a productive life with parts of their bodies blown off. Think of how victims of abuse can overcome their darkest moments to emerge from that hell on earth.
These are examples of people that let their light shine guiding them through the darkness.
