Share Your Story 03 | The Power Of Music

Story#3

“Hey, I think that your blog, it could be really interesting. But uhh storytelling… Okay so I will start with words “I don’t feel okay last times”. I knew, that people feels bad sometimes and it drags them down to the bottom. You shared a post in twenty one pilots group, so it’s obvious I will response that music keeps me alive. Every single day. I started to feel worse when my mother had to go to mental hospital. I have no idea from where it is (my bad mood) and the way I feel is teribble. I can’t stand this anymore. I think nobody will understand. I don’t know what is right, to look for some help or better do handle it by myself. I started to hurt myself, and every day is a fight. Im just exhausted but I Will fight cuz I have a reason to why live for. We don’t have to create music, we can take it, discover like a new mattery. It’s unbelievable how sounds and beats can save us. I thought, weeelll it’s not true how it could be! But truth is different. Please, take care all of you watch your mind and never let it rule you. Like my friend said, not all the words our minds are telling are honest. Keep going.”

Here we are again with another inspiring story from someone who’s brave enough to tell us how they cope with struggles that revolves around their mental health. I shared my post to a Facebook group that I’m a member of, it’s a Twenty One Pilots fan group, and this community is by far the best that there is, it really makes you believe that you are not alone.

I’ve been a fan of Twenty One Pilots since 2015, read all about it here. The thing about their songs are the lyrics that people relate to especially those who are struggling with their mental health. I for one was one of those people who was saved by this band. I have one of their song tattooed on me. And this band even inspires my writings. This just shows how powerful music is, I wonder what Tyler and Josh feel when people say that the thing that they do saves people? I think it is such a big accomplishment for them. In this digital age, I think it’s so important to have somebody in the entertainment industry to make people who feel misunderstood to be understood by making thousands and even millions of them sing “we’re broken people” and know that they are truly not alone.

Anyways, this is one of the small things you have to live for, if you give up you’re not going to be able to listen to your favorite music anymore or you won’t get to see what happens next to your favorite show etc. We may feel like we don’t have something too big to live for but we have these little things. Always look at those little things in your life that makes you happy even for awhile, even if it’s temporary and just live for it. And like what our story teller said keep fighting and keep going.

Thank you to our story sender for this week. I hope you are doing okay and well, stay alive my friend 🤗. I’m leaving you here with Twenty One Pilots’ song Screen. Enjoy!

Cancel “Cancel Culture” #JustSaying

I want to say some things about this trend called “Cancel Culture”. I don’t know why people nowadays became so entitled to their opinions that they think it’s okay to “cancel” someone just because they dislike or got “offended” by a simple statement of a celebrity or personality that they read in too much.

I’m referring to Tyler Joseph’s tweet that some people got offended. He made a joke about using his platform to talk about important things.

I get how “woke” people are now, especially with everything that has been going on with the world. It’s a crazy world right now, and it’s nice to see how people are socially aware about politics and world issues but forcing someone to speak about these issues is a bit too much, people has ways and process to choose what they believe in. Most people are still trying to figure it out, some people are neutral about stuff. And with Tyler Joseph, his “fans” were forcing him to use his platform to spread a message, he made a joke that I actually find corny lol. But people read in too much to it. Someone said that he mocked his fans with that tweet, when in fact Tyler has a dark and weird sense of humor at times. Check his tweets, it’s full of them. He even makes fun of his fans. Anyways, this guy has been using his platform ever since, with his music he saved thousands of lives (including me). And people don’t really need to post it online as a way to support a cause. And you can’t force someone to speak up, they will if they want to.

It’s funny how “fans” treat celebrities and personalities, like they are owed, and these celebrities should do whatever their fans ask them to do. If you don’t like what people does or say on social media, then stop following them instead of spreading it more, which adds more toxicity to this world. This cancel culture needs to stop, I feel sorry for celebrities sometimes they’re not allowed to make mistakes, that’s why a lot of them don’t really go on social media nowadays. And by the way, what effect does this really do? What does cancelling someone does for you? There’s so many bad things happening in this world, and cancelling someone does not solve it. So, I’m cancelling cancel culture. #JustSaying


What are your thoughts about this “Cancel Culture”?

5 Tattoos I Have And What It Means

This is a follow up post from 5 Random Facts About Me That No One Asks For. Some of you asked me about my tattoos, here it is. 😄 I don’t have the greatest tattoos but it really means a lot to me.

I have a total of 5 small tattoos now. I became fascinated with tattoos because of my sister, and from the bands that I listened to back then. I thought they were really cool to look at, and I was just really curious what it was like to have it.


1. Puzzle piece with branches and birds

This was my first tattoo, I got it when I was 17. I’m not really that proud of it, most of my tattoos were just based on impulse. I was torn between having a puzzle piece, trees, or birds and I stumbled upon this design that got it all.

The story behind this is very dramatic 😅 I was 17, I got all that teen angst lol. Anyways, people assume that having this tattoo is me finding a missing puzzle piece in my life but no. The single puzzle piece is me, being alone trying to fit in and wanting to belong. The branches represents the growth in me and the birds are just for freedom. I don’t really want to expound on that, I find it too cheesy 😆.

I’ve written about it years ago, you can read it more here: THINGS I’M TIRED OF HEARING BECAUSE OF MY TATTOO


2. Truce with wings

This is a Twenty One Pilots’ song that really means a lot to me, I love Twenty One Pilots, this band means a lot to me. There was this line in the song where most people get as a tattoo “The sun will rise and we will try again”. I was not really open about my mental health back then, like I said in my story, I bottled up my emotions. And that line from the song gives that away. So, I got the song title instead which is very cryptic just the way I like it. I remember Tyler Joseph, explaining this title which was like, he’s been battling with himself and now he’s saying truce to himself (or something like that), and that really got to me.

When I got this tattoo, everybody was asking me what it meant. And I’ve always been saying “it’s a song from Twenty One Pilots, just listen to it”. The meaning of the song is the meaning of the tattoo itself. 😊

I wrote a little piece about it here: TRUCE


3. Cross

This tattoo represents my faith. I want to talk more about my faith but I’m still trying to form words where I can explain my beliefs further. It’s kind of a messy story, and I will save it in a more elaborate post.


4. Rose

This tattoo doesn’t really mean anything, I just really wanted it lol. But then my boyfriend got one for himself and now it looks like we got matching tattoos 🙄, and it suddenly meant something.


5. Lotus flower

I really like the term rooted from mud, and lotus is that flower. It grows from the dirtiest waters but it blooms. It’s cheesy but I feel like a lotus most times, I feel like I’m always in the mud of sadness and dirty water of darkness but I still grow.


Those are my tattoos, they are not the best ones but it really means a lot. Sometimes when you get a tattoo, it’s not really the outcome that you crave for, it’s the experience and feeling of getting it. 😊 If you’ve been wanting to get a tattoo, don’t be afraid. Don’t be afraid of what the society might say, we’re progressing anyway. A lot more people are very fond of people having tattoos nowadays and if they aren’t, screw them. 😆

Do you have any tattoos? Share the story of it in the comments. 😊

Let’s talk about the power of music and how it helps to get over a bad day. 

I believe music plays a very certain role in each person’s life. I truly believe that what you listen to tells something about your personality and what’s going through your head. Whatever genre you listen to it tells something about you. Music helps us to forget our problems even just for awhile (earphones on and ignore the world) and music is there when you feel so alone.

I personally want to thank music for everything. For every time that I got a lot of things in my head, for the times the silence is too loud and especially for helping me fall asleep. I sleep with my earphones on every night because I have trouble sleeping and it somehow helps even for just a few hours (still have that weird sleeping habit). But anyways, let’s go to the playlist.

For this playlist I’ve compiled the top 10 songs that sums up what I’ve been thinking/feeling for the past weeks or should I say for the past years lol. I love how the lyrics of these songs speak the words that my actual voice couldn’t say out loud, it makes me feel that I’m not the only one feeling and thinking this way, in a way that is actually sort of comforting. I would love to write and tell you more about this playlist but the music speaks itself, listen and you’ll get the story 😉 (I’m saying sorry in advance but this is probably one of the most depressing playlist you’ll ever listen to lol) 

It’s quite cool telling a story through a series of songs. Create a playlist as well and share your story maybe? Ping me back, I want to listen. 😊
