Remember to enjoy everything. The things that feel good, the things that hurt, rejection, acceptance… It’s all going to make you better. Stronger. And more like yourself. Every once in a while I get a reminder of how much I’m okay with just being me. I know that sounds ridiculous. Cause I’m in this band. We’re lucky. We got successful. But who I am is still this nerdy, silly, flamethrower of a person.
Sometimes there’s other things you wouldn’t think would be a good combination end up turning out to be, like, a perfect combination, you know, like two people together - Who nobody ever thought would be together, ever.
