The lyrics to this song are beautiful. I can relate to every. single. word. I'm not a huge fan of Miley's version, but I'm thankful for other amazing artists coming out with versions I can actually stand to listen too.
I actually bought this version of the song today. I'll tuck it away in my playlist that only allow myself to listen every once in a while...on the really bad days. Music is a huge part of the healing process for me. I have found that if I listen to positive and empowering songs it helps to keep me to keep my head up. It helps me believe in a brighter tomorrow. But, every once in a while, when the pain gets really bad. I need music that reaches in a speaks to my soul. That reminds me that I'm not the only one whose ever had a heartbreak. I need music that is going to take me to edge of my darkness, but then bring me back out again.
This is one of those songs. Today is one of those days. I promise I won't stay in this place much longer. I just need a little more time to find my way out of this place and back into the light.
