I Took a Walk In the Darkness of Night

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 844 People

    I have a blind dog that is aggressive to other

    dogs so it is safer if I walk him at night. Also, I practice walking with my chest lifted (my trainer's advice) to strengthen my core and improve my posture. It looks really weird, like I'm trying to make my chest bigger. I'm glad it's too dark for anyone to see me!

    Alone On An Island... Sort of

    Ok, so I was at this diving resort in Honduras, and there is a little island, next to the larger one, that the cabins are on. Well, my aunt and grandparents (the people I took the trip with) were doing the night snorkel. So I watched a movie with some younger kids...

    Dark Alley Ways

    I grew up in a small safe town. Alley ways were as safe at night as they were during the day. I loved to walk down the alleyways at night because they were the darkest parts of the town. It was such a thrill to walk down the dark alley ways. Not because I thought there was...

    Fascinating!

    Without going into great detail, I once had to walk home on a unlit bike path, which was used as an road most of the time (small town), during a dark night. Granted, it was dark, really dark. But I had my night vision to fall back on. Honestly, it was a little spooky.

    Feeling Closed

    I have had the habit of walking alone late at night for years now.  Yeah, I know it's not the safest thing a lady could do but frankly when I am in the mood to walk like that nobody could take me anyway.  During my short stay at college I would go walk around campus...

    I Took A Walk In The Dark & Felt....

    A bump in the night. It bumped back. This guy jumped out of the bushes & jumped me. He pulled me into the bushes & had his way with me. That's what happens when I take a walk in the darkness of night. The darkness inside me wants to take over every time I walk outside at night.

    When I Lived In Kearney

    I would frequently take long walks in the dark.  I lived in a motel that my mom managed and right behind it was a lake with a bunch of trees surrounding it. It was there i learned it was indeed possible for me to pray.  It never felt right thinking it.  So i would...

    Yeah just the other night. I had to walk back to put the garbage in the shed, which is about 100ft from the house.  We live way out in the woods with NO lights. When I say no light I mean it, I'm not joking, and it is scary as hell.  We have bear and coyotes around here...

    I do this a lot in the summer time particularly.

    I love walking on paths at night with only the moon to light the way. To me it is one of the most peaceful things to do. Provided I know the area lol. I once went for a run on a path that my friend told me I "couldn't get lost on" and naturally I went at dusk, got lost and ended...
