Out today from the effortlessly cool New York jazz-hop R&B artist Justy: ‘Rinse, Repeat, Regress’.
“This past summer I had an awful breakup, like my ex currently dating the friend I introduced her to bad, and I felt so defeated, unlovable, worthless, and pointless. Against my own wants I decided to pursue therapy because I knew I wasn’t hanging on to life by much. I was existing but I wasn’t living. My therapist reminded me that people’s actions are always a reflection of themselves. I realized the same applied to my life. Everything I had done in life was rooted in me not truly loving myself. I almost lost myself for someone else but I wasn’t even willing to save myself for me. From that point on, I made a promise to fall for myself, to learn for myself, to heal myself, and to trust myself. I knew that if I could do that I could find love again because I wouldn’t be searching for a filler, I would simply be living. It was important for me to touch on this sort of love story because too often we are told to love everyone else, and chase everyone else, but we really have to get ourselves straight before we go down that road.”
