Peter Harper Behind “Winter Wonderland”

“I can take that experience and feel like I was cheated of a father because he was never around – it’s a path that exists. Or I can say, here’s a guy who lived his life and had a profound impact on the people that he interacted with and is now gone of his own decision. Whether the alcohol controlled that, or didn’t control that, whether he had a say, or didn’t have a say, it’s not really my place to say. Those were his choices.”- Peter Harper

Justin Taylor Phillips Behind Crywolf

“The most important rules that I learned with being able to cope with depression is to not see sadness as something negative because when you see it as negative, you fight against it. When you see it as uniquely beautiful…so positive and so poetic, then the sad parts of life are just as important as the happy things.” -Justin Phillips

Jessica Wen Behind Light Therapy

“…Allow myself to grieve, allow myself to cry, allow myself to call myself ‘stupid,’ and curse a little bit if I have to, but then after that, now I need to forgive. ‘I love myself.’ I found it it is easier to forgive others, even my enemies who betrayed me, than to forgive myself.” -Jessica Wen.
