Having a nightmare every now and then is one thing; having terrifying hallucinations every time you’re about to fall asleep is another thing entirely.

And yet that’s what happens to photographer Nicolas Bruno, who suffers from sleep paralysis. Growing up, the images he saw while he was falling asleep were so terrible that he became an insomniac and began to suffer from depression. That is, until one of his high school teachers suggested he turn his nightmares into art.

Now Bruno battles his fears by documenting them through his camera lens. The results are as captivating as they are absolutely horrifying.

No wonder Bruno suffered from insomnia — the photos alone will keep me awake for days. TC mark

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.
