This all just seems to bring everything back for me

I’m not sure if anyone else feels the same way, but I just need to get this out there and I don’t want to discuss it with anyone I know personally. I’ve been a mess these last few days, I can barely hold it in, it’s just getting worse and I don’t know how I’ll function at work this week. I started listening to linkin park when I was in 5th grade, and their music helped to take me away from all the things that were happening. I’ve associated so many memories with the band’s music, it used to all seem positive I’d just remember how good listening to them made me feel. Ever since his death all the bad memories they helped me escape from are coming back. I seem to have this feeling like if the music can’t help Chester escape from his pain, then why should it help me escape mine?

Hey I know what you mean about having a hard time speaking up in person to anyone how you feel
The only advice I can give you is to look at the good that’s come from his life
We speak to strangers on here as if we were close knit
There’s ties all over the place because of it
there were things he
To escape your pain you don’t just lean on the music
Yes it’s there as comfort and an outlet but you fight for those around you, for yourself and the things you’ve yet to accomplish and even his memory if it helps
As you can consistently see on here, you’re not alone

I’ve been a mess too. I find myself crying a lot, especially when their music is playing. But I’ve forced my self to attach the positives. Remembering what is like before each album release, the shows, Just the music in general. Don’t let the grief consume the happy, it’s hard I know, I get it. But we are all here. We are all united. We are all feeling the heartache. He will forever live on in music and in us all.
