Often in a roleplay we'll have a song for our character(s), a song that really describes their emotions, situation, and/or past, etc. But this thread is not about characters. This thread is about you. Not "you" as you are on Iwaku. You, the person sitting at the computer, the person holding the smartphone. My challenge to you: Tell me the theme songs for your past, present, and future. Explain them if you want, but it's not required. This is a serious and emotional topic. Do NOT troll. Do NOT insult anyone who posts here. You can comment and discuss, but have courtesy and RESPECT. I'll go first. When I was a child, I had a really tough time getting from day to day. I was bullied so severely from grade 3 to grade 7 that I often thought about committing suicide. An eight-year-old should never have those thoughts, I know, but it was the bitter truth. At the start of grade 7, I met a very kind, accepting girl who sat in front of me in class. Because of her, my life really turned around. Whether she realized it or not, that girl taught me to stand strong and to keep smiling. (For those that know me, no, it wasn't Toria. I met her much later.) So I feel that my childhood theme song should be Skyscraper by Demi Lovato. In grade 11, I was faced with a new problem. Because I was a very trustworthy person, I suddenly became the shoulder to cry on. And while I didn't mind comforting my friends and keeping their secrets, after a while it became too much weight to carry, especially when my every suggestion was thrown back in my face. At this point, my theme song was Never Too Late by Three Days Grace because I felt like no matter what I said or did, it wasn't enough to help the people who were relying on me. I grew fed up with trying and failing to change their hearts and minds. Nowadays I'm doing better. I have my down days, but I also have my days where I feel like I'm on top of the world. I sometimes get into a funk but I have amazing friends who remind me just how good life is, no matter how bleak it looks at the moment. And I'm determined to be that strength for them in return. Because of this, my present theme song is The Adventure by Angels & Airwaves. But what about the future? I hope that in the future, my theme song can be something like Thank You by Monkey Majik. I want to be some place different than being stuck in this rut of same faces, same places. I want to leave the past behind, but never the people who matter. I'll keep them in my heart and keep contact with them, but I really just want to be able to say "I'm standing on my own two feet. I'm living life. I'm happy. Thank you for supporting me along the way."
