Did the Collection Encourage You to Start Working on Yourself?

Lucifer spent most of his life in Hell, where he was used to being seen as evil. However, coming to LA and learning about love forced him to be a better person. He accepted that he could not undo his past actions, but he also chose to work for a better future.

Sometimes, we are stuck in the past, feeling regret and guilt. Lucifer reminds us that it is our responsibility to deal with them. It will be a challenging process, and the path towards it might not be linear but what matters is we try.

Life will not always be smooth sailing. After all, it’s a mix of the good and the bad. We hope that you remember the light in your darkest times and strive for a better future.
