This song expresses what I want you to know. Times are extremely difficult for many of you right now, but it will get better. Anytime we experience times of struggle, it can be overwhelming and you might think, “Is this all there is? Is this my life now? Why me? Why now?” All you can do sometimes is pass the time with some simple pleasures.
When I used to feel alone and friends weren’t around, music was always there for me. Those times when I thought I could not live through the nightmare I was experienced, music was healing and allowed me to express my anger and shed many tears. The craziest thing of all is that I went through so much personal growth and if being spared the difficult times would mean that I would not be who I am today and doing what I am doing today and being with the love of my life today, I would choose to go through it all again because of what I found on the other side.
