I believe that people should take pride in what they do, even if it is scorned or misunderstood by the public at large.
Songs are my diaries; they always have been. You have to put your trust in everyone because putting down those real, personal details and thoughts that make a song authentic also opens you right up. I am constantly misunderstood; a lot of people just don't get me.

We are human and we make mistakes, but learning from them is what makes the difference.
