Hi Shan Fam,

I apologize in advance if this post is a bit of a departure from my previous posts. I just wanted to share with you my music playlist for when I’m not ok.

With the recent news of Chester Bennington’s suicide, I’m kind of shaken. Ok, a lot shaken actually. Music has always been my anchor to reality — to this world and Linkin Park was one of my go to bands for when I felt lost and desperate. There are absolutely no words to describe how heartbroken I am. I don’t need to share my thoughts on this topic. If you’ve been following me, you already probably know them.

I know there’s a lot of people in the world, celebrities included, who are just as shaken up as I am and are seeking a bit of comfort. When I’m feeling upset, I have a habit of listening to depressing songs. I don’t know why but I guess it helps me feel a little bit less alone.

So today I’m giving you my music playlist for when I’m feeling less than ok.my music playlist

My condolences go out to all of Chester’s friends and family. I didn’t know him personally but I still feel the impact. I can’t imagine how they must be feeling right now. This piece of news came shortly after I found out about a high school friend passing away. And with Chris Cornell’s suicide back in May, I can’t help but worry about all of my other celebrity role models and fellow friends who struggle with depression.


My friends, I beg you, please take care of your loved ones. Remind them every day how loved they are and never let them go.

I hope my music playlist will provide a little bit of comfort but if you know that is a trigger, please please avoid listening. Feel free to support these artists by downloading their music! <3 And give this article a pin.

With a heavy heart, I bid you adieu for today.

Stay strong xx

Stay hopeful,

Shannon

Don’t question my love for all things Supernatural and Simple Plan!! I’m proud to be a fangirl. I hope to inspire discovery and passion through these fandoms and to showcase the magical power that comes with being a fangirl.

  • oh yes I love those songs too.

  • Great playlist! A few songs that always help me when I’m in a funk are: Keep Holding On (Avril Lavigne), Fix You (Coldplay), and Smile (Nat King Cole), just from the top of my head.
