The text msg from my best friend that changed my perception.

“Ahh just feel like I’m back at square 1. I hate nights like this”

“You’re definitely not at square one – you’re at square 5000000000 it just so happens that this square is mirroring ones that you’ve been on in the past. In 11 months you’ve lived a good 330 days or so and a million different incidents that you may or may not even be aware of have been at work interacting with you and changing you. You’re not the same person you were when you felt this way last time. And you can make a different choice. It hurts but sometimes life does – you can ride through it until a happy moment comes along. I believe you’re very strong and very important. Just ‘be’ for the moment and the world will shift and positives will come along. Life just happens and when you know you’re strong enough to get through anything it makes life a little easier. I believe in you! And just don’t get too angry at yourself or the world because everything is half chance too – so sometimes you just have to go with the flow for the world to bring good things your way. I wish a warmness for you in your heart – and I know that that doesn’t have to come from finding ‘the one’. But can come from connections with others and the things we love – life is about more than relationships. So just because one thing isn’t going the best right now doesn’t mean that everything else can’t bring you happiness. And if you’re feeling lonely I’m always here xxx”

The Trouble With Us | Chet Faker x Marcus Marr

I couldn’t stand this song before but it has really grown on me the past week and I really like where Chet Faker went with this one, lyrically and sonically.

What’s funny is even when Chet Faker tries to be funky and groovy, the antagonist in his songs is still suffering. Quite clearly this song is about engaging in a very steamy, intimate relationship, well in this case it’s not really a relationship, they’re clearly just fucking but the poor boy has the feels – he wants emotional connection and she’s not exactly willing to reciprocate.
