Yesterday, at the Head and the Heart show, the lead singer said something that took me a little by surprise… “silence is scary.” It was completely offhand and unimportant, but it really struck me. I’ve spent so much time surrounding myself with noise and distraction because of exactly this. Silence is scary. Ridiculously terrifying. Silence means having to face yourself and your problems. Because of this, I don’t think I’ve ever really allowed myself to feel and seek emotion from the things around me.. my family, my friends, my music, my work. These things, however, aren’t as real or meaningful when you’re numb. Don’t get me wrong. I love my life, but I’ve always been a shell.
The point: embrace the silence.
my love for wine knows no bounds
i wholeheartedly believe that pop music saved my life
