  • ...I'm in ninth grade. And I have a friend who means the world to me, who I would die for, and they....I won't say much because it's not my place to but they suffer a lot because of mental illnesses. ...This reminds me of them. And of myself in a way.'s like Alec Benjamin's songs speak to me.

  • I was sick a lot last year (mainly chest infections) and I was consistently on pretty strong medication. I’d be physically sick, I’d have fevers and my throat would be so raw I could barely breathe let alone talk. I remember texting one of my friends after a particularly bad fever (I cried and blacked out) and I said I felt like some zombie that was barely still going, more medication than human. Then this song came out and it was so perfect for describing it. It was nice to know someone understood at all.

  • Alec is a lyrical genius

  • I can’t relate to this song a lot. And once in my Senior year of high school I was told to stay home for a while a few weeks or so but I ended up staying home for 2 months or longer? Tbh I lost track of time and I had to take antidepressants and it helped for a an hour or two but I still felt empty and I was sleep deprived worrying about college, graduation, friends and family I’d see a lot less of once I graduated. I also wasn’t ready to go out into the real world and be an adult. But I found that even though at the time, I wasn’t sleeping at all, or eating that I wasn’t taking care of myself. My doctor told me it was getting really bad and she could see how pale I’ve become. I’d nearly fainted from lack of food and sleep many times and all I knew at the time was, I felt empty, hated myself and I couldn’t tell reality from make believe. All I knew was I had to be alive, why else would I be hurting emotionally, mentally and physically if that wasn’t true. I’ve gotten a lot better since then but sometimes I wonder why I let it get so bad. This song I can really relate to on a high level. And even though it’s sad, I love it.

  • I can relate to this song a lot. Last May my beloved dog went missing I was heartbroken. I couldn't focus in school and started to fall into a really dark place. The worst part is my siblings didn't really care. And when people told me it would be okay I didn't want to believe them because then I would have given up on the best dog in the world. So I kept hurting and feeling such a big pain and eventually we found him. It was such a bad memory and it still hurts me to this day. But this song helped me realise that I needed to be grateful and embrace the pain. I really needed this THANK YOU!
