I heard this yesterday while watching a movie on Netflix called "Call Me Crazy". The movie was a fantastic glimpse into mental illness (so fantastic, it triggered an anxiety attack...What.The.Fenway.). Anyway, I loved this song because I really related to it.
I think there's an idea out there that I'm everyone's Sunshine and I'm glad to be the person they turn to for a little sparkle and optimism and cheerful kick-ass-itude, you know? But it was a long time comin'. I had to "break free" of so many things; a past that haunts me, insults that claw at my sense of self, perfectionism, self doubt, anxiety and panic disorders, and the old well-trained-girl who was never allowed to be 100% herself. I'm so proud to have broken free, even if sometimes I still see the chains and the marks they left all over my soul.
