We think there is always a tomorrow, so why expose our feelings today? Why risk being vulnerable? Why take the chance? Because today, what we love, what we feel, what is real, is what we have. Tomorrow, it may all change.
"It’d be like, 2, 3 in the morning and I’d be singing full power at the top of my voice. My sister’d be banging on the wall, going: 'Shut up, you can't even sing. Go to sleep!' That was kind of, I guess, where the dream started.”
Before you tell me to go away, let me tell you one thing. I know I messed everything up, I- I have a lot of insecurities and I do really stupid things sometimes. Well a lot of the time. All I ever wanted was for you to like me and think that I was cool, which I’m not. I let a lot of the stuff get in the way of the fact… I really like you so much. - Rick Stevens
The pain is still there. The grief and the shame. But I get it now. Shutting it off, it’s a cheat. I mean, you put up this wall and shut out everything that makes you who you are. Nothing affects you, nothing matters. But things do matter. Things that happen that can’t be undone.
