Hey guys. I just wanted to let you all know that I am going to be taking a bit of a break from Tumblr. As many of you now know, Chester Bennington, the lead singer of Linkin Park, committed suicide today. As a fan of the band, this deeply breaks my heart, and I know that it will forever. No words can describe what I feel right now, mainly because I’ve never felt like this before. I’ve lost people before, but this just seems so much worse, and I can’t find it in me to really do anything. Even as I’m typing this now, I’m still crying over the fact that he really is gone.
I’m also writing this as a form of goodbye to my hero and inspiration. He will forever be in my heart, and even though he is gone, his legacy will continue. I also give my condolences to his family and the band as I can’t even imagine what they are going through. So, Goodbye Chester. You are and always will be missed.
And please, if you are thinking about suicide, know that there is help available. It doesn’t have to end, and it will get better. Just give it a chance to get better.
