“It seems like every day’s the same and I’m left to discover on my own
It seems like everything is gray and there’s no color to behold.” - Fine Again, Seether
As someone who has an intimate knowledge with pop culture, I will often find metaphors and analogies for my current situation in the scenes of a film or the lyrics of a song. Recently, when I heard the song “Fine Again,” I realized the lyrics accurately portrayed what the emotional recovery has been like. This epiphany was similar to when I recognized the songs on the album “Third Eye Blind” by the band Third Eye Blind seemed to predict the major events of my life. However, while the emotional recovery has been a difficult transition to endure, I also know it’s temporary. It’s been helpful to hear from people and read about their experiences. Of course, the only thing which has been unfortunate happened years ago when I realized my life was similar to the film Good Luck, Chuck starring Dane Cook about a guy who’s unlucky with relationships. It couldn’t have been Bullitt with Steve McQueen.
