Every time Mike releases a new song, I am continually inspired at the maturity, professionalism, and emotional strength he demonstrates. What he has done and continues to do is beyond amazing. He’s a fantastic role model. Clearly, his music/art show how strong he is.
After watching his most recent music video, “Running from My Shadow,” I was thinking about where all that strength comes from. I’m not being sarcastic here, I’m asking an honest question. How is it possible that he is able to do what he continues to do so well, despite such difficult and challenging circumstances? Is it willpower? Is it a sense of duty to us, the fans? Is it out of love for his art and because he wants to honor C? Is it something else? He seems waaaay farther along in the grieving process than some people (including me). He’s made all this progress, and I’m still struggling along, seemingly far behind. For me, it’s always bittersweet when Mike releases a new song because over the years, I got so used to seeing Mike and C together. And yet, Mike’s music always makes a statement; he has important things to say.
Where do you think Mike gets his incredible emotional strength?
