You know what’s causing so many people to feel so depressed and miserable? Ironically, it’s this idea that everyone should be happy. As if happiness is something that everyone is entitled to. Life isn’t about feeling happy 24/7, it’s about living it. Life comes with a wide gambit of emotions, not just happiness. It’s a package, so deal with it.
Rock ‘n’ roll used to be about empowerment and having a good time. It made people feel alive and free. It was uplifting and feel good. Then somewhere down the line, rock music took a tortured turn that’s been bitter-sweet. We got incredible music out of the changes, but we’ve also lost plenty of brilliant souls because of it too.
