Just because you close your eyes doesn't mean the world disappears.
meet shannon peterson. In this world there are things. Things that
will trick you into crying, regret, and sadness. Now I could lie and
say these things don't happen very often. But they do. And you can't
control when or why they happen. But what you can control is your
reaction to them. I've learned this. I've learned it well. I used to
be the girl who everyone thought was emo because I was crying all the
time. There were walls surrounding me and the only feeling I ever felt
was clausterphobic. They would close in on me and stay that way. But
now, I do believe I'm growing stronger everyday. Every minute. And no
one can stop me because I know what the other side of crying feels
like. I'm making a record and I haven't cried in exactly 29 days. Day
by day, breath by breath, minute by minute I'm becoming a new person.
A better person at that. And when I get there, I'll let you know. And
then, you really can meet shannon peterson.
