“In June, we broke my heart. It wasn’t as simple as, “he did it.” No. Because I did it too. I think he wanted to be let go. He couldn’t do it himself. I grasped at his fingertips, bracing myself at the cliff’s edge while he dangled into whatever void would swallow him should I decide to loosen my grip and set myself free. That’s when I lost myself. Those final weeks, when I knew we were done, but I couldn’t stand up, walk away, trust that if I let him fall, he won’t come apart, or I won’t jump in after him. Finally, I slipped my hand from his. That’s where my story begins. Sad Girl Music isn’t about him. It’s about me. It’s about drowning so you can become what you cannot possibly be when you stay above the surface. Sadness is not a weakness. Sadness is a triumph.”
