@marinadiamandis there’s probably little chance of you seeing this, BUT if you do:
I can’t imagine what it takes to release something so personal into the world and open yourself up to the exhaustion of the internet’s thoughtless opinions and comments. I also can’t possibly express here, in just a few sentences, the happiness your music has brought me, and countless others. We don’t know each other, but I HOPE that if it hurts to hear a complete stranger bring you down, then it might also HEAL to hear a complete stranger send sincere gratitude and appreciation.
My life would be LESS without your art. It wouldn’t be nothing, it wouldn’t even be bad, but it would be LESS. That isn’t enough to justify the struggle you’re going through to put this art into the world, but I hope it’s at least something.
No one should have to develop a thick skin. No one should have to ‘toughen up’ in order to deflect the vitriol of the world. It’s heartbreaking.
I hope the next time you close your eyes; the next time you find yourself falling... that the love pushes out some of the hate, the light brightens the darkness, that you find control in a place where you feel like you have none.
I hope the next time you’re falling through the sky, you find that you are actually flying. #marina #marinadiamandis - 42 minutes ago
