Dedicated To The Broken Hearted…
It’s always hard breaking up with someone you love. Especially, if you were the person that is being broken up with. I won’t go into details but I will admit, the past few days have been a whirlwind of emotions. The months to come will surely be equally as difficult. As a music enthusiast, I know music has the power to heal open wounds and help them transcend into stories of strength, forgiveness, and healing. There is one artist that has matched how I was feeling, and that is Illenium. When I would get close to these feelings and emotions, his music was the wings that caressed me and gave me hope and strength.
Illenium Lost Lands 2017 Set
I will admit, I have been sleeping on Illenium. Now I’ve been thinking about why I didn’t connect with his music before. Sadly, I couldn’t attend Lost Lands last year and that was when I was supposed to see Illenium for the first time. Listening to his set now, almost a year after the event, this time couldn’t be better to listen.
Illenium’s Lost Lands Set was emotionally transcending, starting out with “Crawl Outta Love”, which has been my anthem since last year. His music takes you on an emotional journey of heartbreak, grieving and coming out of the ashes and becoming the best person you can be.
Throughout all the tears and all of the hurt, listening to Illeniums set made me realize that I will have someone who will love me someday. It may not be now, or it may be in the near future, but I know until the time comes, I will be okay. It’s okay to cry and to let the overflow of emotions take me like a tidal wave. This set was the answer to all the questions I had, and the glue holding me together. I know it will be a long road, but I know what I am worth and I will fight to the end knowing that. Thank you, Illenium for helping me through this tough time.
