To anyone who wants to read this…

Today marks 5 years since I discovered Linkin Park and their music.

That may not seem like a big deal but in late 2007, I was very depressed.

I had started self harming and I was, quite frankly, ready to give up.

Then I found this song. A song that really spoke to me, expressed everything I was feeling.

That song? Numb by Linkin Park. It saved me. I

 listened to more and more songs by LP and quickly fell in love with them, their music and their message. When I felt like no one was there…I had their music.

So when someone tells me they hate them or that they suck.

I do get offended and defensive but they saved my life, maybe not personally but they sure helped.

I was in a dark place and I couldn’t see a way out but their music brought me back and I'm forever grateful for that.

They mean the world to me.

And I’m sure I’m not the only LP fan that feels this way.

And even if in 30 years, when they aren’t making music anymore or my taste in music has changed, it won’t change the fact that they got me to and past my 14th birthday.

So thank you Linkin Park. I owe you big time and I hope to tell you in person one day.

Thanks for sharing something so persona. I went through the save thing, but a much longer time before you. It means I'm old ;)

You are not alone :) 

I found LP 6 years ago, when i was little depressed. I thought "Now i gonna kill myself" when i failed even little bit in my life.

Then i heard In The End. I fell in love and wanted listen to more this band's songs. My taste of music changed a lot, but now, it never gonna change and i'll listen to LP every day, like i have done since that i heard In The End.

Forward with LP, Soldier!
