do you ever get those pangs of anxiety where you feel like nobody likes you and nobody will ever like you and you will achieve nothing
"Loving music had pushed all of us off the track- away from the normal pursuit of career, mate, and family, on an endless quest for that vibrating high, the plunge beyond time that comes only when you submerge yourself beneath the waterline of amplified sound. We were addicts, in a way, but also adept, enlightened by a noise most people considered no more than a pleasant distraction. What was left for us but to practice our art of listening?"
~Ann Powers, Weird Like Us: My Bohemian America
“It is my theory that rock and roll happens between fans and stars, rather than between listener and musician - that you have to be a screaming teenager, at least in your heart, to know what’s going on.”
How can anyone like me when I don’t even like me?
sometimes we are too hard on ourselves .. that’s why others might see stuff they like about us that we can’t see about ourselves.
And sometimes we get hurt once, that we worry about getting hurt again and we kind of block our feelings and prefer to play it safe and just believe that no one should be interested in us.. thinking that this will protect us from any disappointments.
