I totally forgot to post anything yesterday. So sorry about that. I really meant to post continually for three days, with two quotes a day. Oops. I guess I can post for six days now, though I can’t nominate that many people. I’d like to thank again the wonderful Grace for nominating me. So, without further ado, let us proceed.
“I’m scared to get close, and I hate being alone. I long for that feeling to not feel at all. The higher I get, the lower I’ll sink. I can’t drown my demons, they know how to swim.”
-“Can You Feel My Heart”, Bring Me The Horizon
For me, this quote means that for every high, there is an equal low. I feel like it’s pretty straightforward, and inspiring all the same. I personally feel scared to get attached to too many things, but I can’t stand being alone either. It’s kinda contradictory, if you ask me. It leads to a lot of internal conflict, and it sucks. “The higher I get, the lower I’ll sink” can be paired with another quote, “What goes up, must come down”. This means that nothing lasts forever. Happiness is temporary, though it can last a while.
Our demons never leave us, not really. They watch over us, leading us. We create our demons, they’re attached to us, ingrained in who we are. You can get rid of them, you can’t drown them. Our mistakes haunt us, they cloud our thoughts, but they make us who we are.
That was okay, right? I feel like I missed something…
