Punk gets crunk

Listening to: The Maccabees - Love you better

"I wanna go where the wind takes me"

There's someone in my life, quite prominent, who i think holds me back. But its my own fault because i let myself be held back. I almost synchronize with who's close to me, then anything that's different to what we're both used to, i shy away from. This is bad though, as no change means stagnation and boredom. Now that's a recipe for disaster.

If you find yourself getting too sucked into a relationship (and i don't mean a romantic one) then you need to give some distance, get perspective, remind yourself of who you are and what makes you a special friend, person, individual. Have time to yourself, and see other friends who you may have forgotten about.

Don't let yourself be taken for granted, don't become part of the scenery, don't be used as a prop. Be true to yourself.

Excuse my mini pep talk to myself.

p.s. this is a stunning song by the maccabees. if you've never heard of them, then check out their myspace and give it a listen...

  1. I couldn't agree with you more. I have this bad habit of gradually turning into my friends whenever I hang out with them. Or being molded by boyfriends (listening to their music, eating their favorite foods, etc.).

    The best time to find yourself is when you take a step back and think about what makes you happy. Understand what you like. What you want to do.

    I'm happy you've recognized that too. :)
