We are All Fighting Something

I am just going to put this out there

(yes, I’ve been saying that a lot lately-

or at least twice today)

I am still stuck on the song

“A Reason to Fight”

Because:

We are all fighting something

whether it be

grief, suicidal thoughts,

addiction, low self-esteem,

alcoholism, darkness,

nighttime, sadness, alone-ness,

health challenges, medical problems,

a job we hate, relationship issues,

child troubles, guilt,

pain, fear,

the list could go on and on.

On November 4th I began listening to “A Reason to Fight” by Disturbed.

The first time I listened to it,

I was shattered.

Air-sucking, breathless, shattered.

The song hit me straight in the soul.

I was spiraling out of control.

Grief had me in it’s unyielding grasp

I was not good

not by a long-shot.

But this song

just one song

gave me hope!

I listened to it straight on repeat

for weeks-

It remains number one on my playlist.

You can read that post here or see the video by clicking:

My point to this post is:

If we are not fighting something, chances are very good that we know someone who is…

That is why this official live video resonates:

If you know someone who is fighting – reach out to them.

If you feel hopeless and are trying to be a warrior

but acting alone

ask for help

reach out to someone

please.
