While I personally have very little interest in thrash metal, there are those rare occasions when I can identify with the rage and aggression that must inspire this genre of music. I belong nowhere near a mosh pit, and am the opposite of a violent human — but sometimes it feels like I’m stuck in a batting cage shooting nothing but curveballs and it makes me want to scream!! Or cry. But screaming and crying can be fun, too (kind of like acting tough in all black, with a badass vintage shirt and a torn denim jacket – like this one from Forever21 via Stylinity).

It’s been a particularly challenging month for me but, well, life happens. Along the way, we’re going to lose loved ones, watch illness strike those who seem to deserve it the least, and people will let us down when we need them the most. Without the tough times, though, we wouldn’t be able to appreciate the happy ones as much.

I’ve come to realize that I can either be a slayer or get slayed. So no matter what happens, I’m going to try and take things on with all the strength I can muster. I think we all have a little more fire inside than we might realize. Sometimes it just takes getting knocked down, kicked around, and then learning to stand back up to spark that powerful flame.

    You’re looking so cool in this dark and edgy outfit! I’m sorry to read about your hard times but just like your said, without those hard times we wouldn’t be where and who we are today.
    Much power and strength to you girl!
