Pride @ 09:40 pm

irisheyedlass:
I'm currently feelin: indescribable
I'm currently hearin: U2 - Pride

So I'm in my last few days of my senior year of high school, and things with a couple of girls (I go to an all girls school) that I've been so close to for the past four years are just falling apart, and I can't begin to say how much it hurts sometimes when I think about it...I'm listening to Rattle and Hum right now, and the live version of Pride came on, and I immediately felt lighter. When I heard the very beginning of the song, I smiled and I felt so much better about things than I have in the past few days. It's incredible what U2 can do for the heart.

I also wanted to say - I might be deleting my LJ soon. There are things going on and such and I'm thinking of stopping the LJ thing. So I wanted to say thanks to everyone in this community. I might check back in from time to time because there is so much great stuff in this community. But thanks to yall who keep it running, and to everyone in the community. I love it here ;)

I'm sad that you are leaving the U2 community. we will miss you! and as for friendships: when people realize their good friends are going away to a new place and/or making NEW friends based off of NEW experiences, its hurtful and some people draw back from their relationships. maybe your friends are just feeling sad that high school is ending. graduation is a big big deal and a college is a HUGE step. talk to your friends. maybe it will help. it helped me when i graduated last year. hope this helps even a little bit!

I did talk to them - now they're barely talking. Maybe it's just easier for them? I don't know, but I hope we work it out before graduation...thanks for the advice. I really appreciate it ;)

Bad does a lot for me, too...their music is just so healing.

Best of luck to you, as well!

I can relate to your post so much... a bunch of my own long-running friendships fell apart towards the end of secondary school (also an all-girls school!), but thankfully I had just discovered U2 and it helped me through that incredibly difficult time. I dunno what would have happened if I didn't have that music to cling onto. Funny how a band can make such a difference to our lives. :o)

I'm so thankful for their music! I listen to it at school on my headphones and it makes me feel so much better. It has really helped me get through some stuff. We have a 'creative assignment' due tomorrow in my English class, and one of the options was to pick a line of poetry that is important to you and write about it. I picked a line from Bad - 'if I could, through myself, set your spirit free I'd lead your heart away see you break, break away into the light and to the day'

I'm sorry you have to be going through all of that. *hugs* People may think I'm an annoying psycho for being so obsessed with U2, but it's true- they have amazing healing powers. They were one of the only things to keep me alive this summer. Whatever happens, know you've got a whole legion of people here and everywhere who are connected to you- who are your friends. /utter sappiness

I can totally understand where you're coming from, same thing happened to me in the final year of secondary school. A friend introduced me to Acrobat as a venting aid, it really works!
