omitef Posted April 14, 2016 Share Posted April 14, 2016 I have a special connection to the song "Deep Inside of You" by Third Eye Blind. It's held a lot of different meanings for me over time. When I first heard it, it made me think about all my past relationships with people, both platonic and romantic. I have a lot of mental health issues so I tend to isolate myself, but people mistake this as "an air of mystery" and end up thinking I'm some sort of super special guy with all sorts of deep dark secrets to reveal. And because I feel lonely, I'll play the "mystery man" act up to keep them interested in me, to the point where every interaction with them becomes a performance--which makes me feel lonelier, because I end up with a whole bunch of friends who aren't actually friends with the real me, and then I end up hating both them and myself, for making me become an actor in the first place. But over the past few years, I met some people who didn't want to pretend, for the sake of anybody. People who were brave enough to be themselves, to be open about their issues, who encouraged me to cut down my acting, and be more honest with myself and others. Hearing this song always reminds me that people can always make a difference in your life, if you let them in, and that sometimes, we need to learn to live without a safety net in order to grow in character. What are some songs that mean a lot to you? 6 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
