I rewatched Jack’s Far From Noise play through last night at like 3am because my anxiety was keeping me awake, and I find his voice really soothing. To distract myself further, I painted this while I watched. I’m not the best at art, but this game inspired me and made me want to create.
This video hit me so hard because I have been the person in the vehicle–the one on that proverbial precipice, the one who thinks they’re not enough, the one wondering what the point of anything is–and, though I’m in an arguably better place now, those feelings still linger. I haven’t been in the healthiest mindset as of late, it’s been…really rough.
But, I’m trying. I’m still here, I’m still breathing, and day by day I’m learning how to love myself. To anyone who also pictured themselves in that car, who’s ever been on that edge–I believe in you. You are enough, you deserve happiness, and you can make it through this.
And just, thank you, Jack, for inspiring me every single day. You are a great force of positivity in this world, and I’m so grateful that you share so much of yourself with us. It means more than I can properly articulate.
What a stunning game.
