they are my therapy

so after careful deliberation and listening to the whole thing on very HQ speakers that made everything much worse…

i love flicker so much. it’s the perfect autumn album, for when your days get darker and rainy and everything seems a bit melancholic and you need something to reflect your mood, and though most songs are sad in some way, they remain hopeful and warm on those cold days and it’s all so human and real. these songs just make you feel all kinds of things, just like Niall did when he wrote them, you can tell. 

it’s just incredibly nice to get a bit of a look into his brain and how he cares for people when he does his absolutely best to keep everything private on a day to day basis. it’s a way he can tell his story without having to explain since we still don’t know any details, but the feeling you get with it? incredible. it’s his little piece of himself into the world, and i love it more than i can say. also musically? SO incredibly good. it seems like simple music but it’s so complex in its simplicity and you can tell how much effort and heart went into this.

good job, niall. i’m prouder than i can say.

A Therapist Answers Questions You’re Too Afraid To Ask - Buzzfeed 

“In the absence of human relationships I formed bonds with paper characters. I lived love and loss through stories threaded in history; I experienced adolescence by association. My world is one interwoven web of words, stringing limb to limb, bone to sinew, thoughts and images all together. I am a being comprised of letters, a character created by sentences, a figment of imagination formed through fiction.” - Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me
