What’s the Worst that Could Happen?

Categories: figuring it out, music

I’ve been on a music discovery for the last few days. Just forcing myself to listen to new music, because I realize I’d been listening to the same drivel over and over and over. Powerful thing music is… if you constantly listen to lamenting, sad, regretful songs… guess how you’re going to feel? Yeah.

So in listening to the WHOLE of Zero 7‘s album – Simple Things, I came across this song called Distractions. The chorus says:

I love you, I love you, I love you, I do
I only make jokes to distract myself
From the truth, from the truth.


I can say I know more than a few people who’ve done exactly this. Present company included. But if we were to just be honest with ourselves and look at our truths right in the face and admit them. What’s the worst that could happen? The worst that we are probably staving off by joking it away. But it’ll come anyway.
