Just Another "they saved me" story.

I know half of the MCR fans probably have a story like mine or probably more extreme, but this just recently happened, so I thought I'd share :). For the past two years, I had been in a secret downward-spiraling depression. I basically hated myself; I called myself fat, stupid, lazy, etc. But I also hated myself for BEING depressed. There are so many people in the world who have it way worse than I, and I had no right to complain. About a month and a half ago, I started listening to My Chemical Romance, and I became obsessed ;). I would stay up until 5 AM listening to their music or watching videos. Their lyrics could describe exactly what I was feeling, but in a beautiful, poetic, honest way. This morning, I knew something had changed. I didn't look in the mirror and think "fat, ugly, lazy," I didn't have any mean words to say. It was the most wonderful feeling, and I knew it was because of this band. This band, who could say exactly what you wanted to through beautiful melodies. This band, who gave people hope and always encouraged people to not "take anybody's shit." This band, who let you know that you are perfect exactly the way you are, had helped me immensely without my even knowing. In that moment, I was so thankful that this band exists, because they do save people.
