I’ve been watching Russell Howard’s show Good News. And he was talking about how they’re trying to start as early as 5 to teach kids about sex. And he made a comment that how are you supposed to get 5 year olds to understand when you can’t even get teenagers to take it seriously and then in the background Blink-182 started playing. How appropriate! lol

I’ve been having a really rough week, and since this is the image that has been in my head, I thought I’d share a little more of my story. Continuing from my post about what meeting Tom did for me, I’ve decided to expand a little more on how he has helped me so much:
After meeting him, he basically became the voice in my head. Or really, my imaginary friend (I guess if you want to look at it that way). When I’m struggling with something, I imagine what he might say based on what I know of his life and what he sings about and how he talks. I’ve kind of memorized his voice and even though I have no idea if he’s ever said these things or would say these things, it always seems to be a perspective I couldn’t see. Like, it’s almost as if once it got started, it’s taken on a life of it’s own. Because many times I have no idea what prompted me to think about the things “he’s” said through this. I don’t sit there and think about it for hours, trying to come up with the perfect thing that matches all the criteria. It just pops into my head. And 9 times out of 10, what “he” has to say, completely floors me. This voice, “his” voice, has been insanely reassuring. It’s made me really think and explore the problems I’m facing and through it, I have learned so many things about myself. It’s also helped me heal parts of my soul I never thought I could.Things from my past, flaws that are all too blatant. I’ve talked about how he’s saved me, and even if it’s just my imagination saving myself, it takes his form and sometimes I have a really hard time believing it’s coming from me. And maybe this is crazy, or not normal, or maybe I’m really psychic, who knows? All I know is what it’s done for me. Every single response, every thought, every moment of comfort it has brought me, has basically felt like him literally throwing a lifeline made up of his words out to me, when I feel like I’m drowning in my own thoughts and fears.
Every single response, almost always brings me a peace I have no idea how else I’d find. Sometimes what “he” says makes me laugh when I want to cry. It’s taught me to look at the world in a completely different, much more positive way. It’s made me look in the mirror and not hate what I see. It’s made me swallow my fear and try something I’d normally never do. And sometimes, it feels like he’s just giving me a comforting (very likely- mental, hug). And a lot of this is the reason behind my tattoo. He has been my lifeline, even if he has no idea how much he’s been in my head or how many times he’s saved me from self-destructive thoughts and hours of tears or pain. His music, especially in Angels & Airwaves, runs through my veins, it is my heartbeat. And without it, I don’t know how I’d ever feel whole. It’s so much a part of me now. (And a lot of this is why I’m so fiercely protective of not only him, but also of AVA.)
Ironically, my tattoo says LIFELINE and though I love that song, if I had to truly pick the most inspiring line of one of his songs, I’d have to go with “You will be fine,” from The Adventure. There’s something about the breathiness of his voice and the certainty, that in one line says; “you couldn’t possibly know the things I’ve seen but this is what I know, you’ll be fine. I’ve been to hell and back. I’ve lost things I never could have imagined. I’ve been on the brink; I’ve seen it, I’ve felt it. But I KNOW, you will be fine!” And in all honestly, I can’t help but believe it. There’s just something there how he says it. For me, it’s too powerful to ignore. It’s a promise no one could ever break. I don’t know how else to describe it. I’ve mentioned before that to me the music and the merchandise is like a friend. It’s like constantly being hugged and supported and inspired. And even if you think I’m totally insane after reading this, when I say he’s saved me (to totally steal from Titanic- as corny as it might sound), I mean; he’s saved me in every possible way a person can be saved. I don’t know where I’d be without his voice. Without his guiding light. Imagination or not.
