Such an Inspiration.♥

Machine Gun Kelly is such an inspiration in many ways.

His songs show that he is himself and does not care what anyone thinks. Through his songs he helps people understand that they do not need approval from anyone else except their selves. He was not popular in high school and by him becoming who he is now shows that to succeed in life you do not always need to be popular. Also, he does not want a million “fans”, he wants true fans that understand his music and appreciate it. The most inspiring thing he has done was help Ryan Yex. Kells met him at a Blink 182 concert and Ryan told him because of his music he believed that he could walk again. On December 3rd, 2011 at Machine Gun Kelly’s concert in Bowling Green he brought Ryan to the stage. Ryan stood up and walked. Machine Gun Kelly has shown to everyone that if you are passionate about something, you can make your dreams come true.. just like he did.

i am so beyond lucky to be able to call this boy one of my best friends. he has been through so much, but he is not bitter. he is so selfless and loving and sweet, and he has made such a huge impact on millions of people, just from this video.

and one day, i know he’ll be out of that wheelchair for good. he works so hard, and i know it will pay off.

what completely blows my mind, is how much faith he has. in everything. he knows how much work he has to do, but he still has the time to text me and tell me he believes in me and knows i can get through whatever is going on. even if it’s just finishing a paper i’m working on, he’ll say “you got this, i believe in you. do work.” or something, and i’ll be drawn to tears every single time. 

hanging out with him tonight was definitely what i needed.
