A few days ago our editor Tina shared an image on Instagram that resonated quite strongly in my head, mostly because there’s a certain feeling I’ve been dealing with lately that has connection with the big fat question, “What If…?”
Maybe it’s about to get personal here, or cheeky or obnoxious, call it what you want but, have you ever gotten that feeling about something or someone that you meet? Like there just had to be a reason? You can even develop strong feelings towards them but, why? Well, in my case I don’t know if it’s a good or a bad thing, but I don’t have any remote idea as of why. Say you develop a feeling, you get along well, and everything seems to be okay. Then, comes destiny, adulthood or whatever thing gets in the way, and the two of you part ways and the obvious thing to do is to move along with your life, so you do. But eventually, if the feeling was deep enough, it’ll come crawling back at you…I guess that’s the worst part, especially if it slowly comes back out of thin air.
It’s a combination between the “coincidences” and a lot of “what if’s” that have been making my head spin madly lately. I’ve talked about it, I’ve tried to wrap my head around some facts and I’ve even forced myself to block ideas only to make myself stop thinking for a moment and finally let go of it all. Guess I’m seriously failing at it.
So, in order to not dig deeper into my rambling and don’t bore the hell out of you, if you’re still reading, I decided to curate a playlist with some songs that at least I think express what I’m trying to say here. Spoiler alert: this isn’t exactly a happy playlist. Don’t worry, I’m not depressed or extremely sad, I’m just confused and uncertain about a lot of things regarding this particular topic. Luckily for me, there are so many talented musicians out there who have a better way with words than I do.
