I got to tell my hero, Alex Gaskarth, how he helped me continue living when I almost gave up 4 years ago. I got to tell him about how I gave a testimony at my youth group about how he helped me during that time. I got to tell him about all the times I wanted to relapse, and I would play “Therapy” to calm me down. He is my absolute hero. He means everything to me and so much more. I’m pretty sure I teared up. I love him so much. Finally, after all these years, I got to meet him.
Reblogging because it’s been exactly 3 months since the concert and whenever I felt the need to relapse, I would watch this. Alex Gaskarth suffers from anxiety too, and he hasn’t let it stop him from doing what he loves: touring the world, writing music, and helping people with his lyrics and actions. If he can overcome it, so can I.
