Breaking The Silence

Recommended Posts

I want to share a song I found by Disturbed.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u9Dg-g7t2l4

It is a remake of the Simon Garfunkel song “The Sound of Silence” and it touch me very deeply the way the vocalist sang with such passion.  He breathed life into the song that the original artists couldn’t because they did not have the life experience only someone who has been touched the darkness can know.  The Disturbed singer experienced the loss of his girlfriend through suicide and I can almost feel his pain about it coming out in the song.  I know, as well as many of you all do as well, how difficult it is to talk about our troubles and pain but if we don’t it only becomes a terrifying demon that tries to swallow us whole.  I have not spoken much with people about my depression shame except a select few in my life who I trust but I have found this site to be invaluable for helping me speak my truth in a safe place with people who get it.  I can talk here in ways that I can’t anywhere else and for that I am grateful.  Thank goodness for sites like this that allow people to talk who might otherwise be swallowed up by their silence.  It’s a true blessing.  May each and every one of you one day break free from your darkness.
