We've heard it a thousand times..."good times create weak men, weak men create hard times". This song is a reflection on that historical sentiment but from a more personal perspective. I wrote it during a time when I was kind of in free fall. I was trying to figure a lot out (and I eventually did, thankfully), and the lack of movement and direction led me to some negative places while simultaneously leading me nowhere. We're some of the most privileged people to exist in the history of this planet, and we have the luxury of viewing struggle as a bad and unnecessary thing, but that couldn't be farther from the truth. Struggle is essential. It gives us purpose and shapes us into the best versions of ourselves. Well, maybe not struggle itself...but overcoming it. Life isn't about where you are, it's about how far you come. It's not about stature...it's about velocity.
