In life you will have to make some difficult decisions. These choices can alter your life in many different ways. It can be situations like cutting off a friend or breaking up with a toxic lover. It will be natural of you to miss that person and their presence. But one of the most important things I have learned over time is that it's for the best. The worst thing you can do is keep watering a plant that is dead. That is the major reason why people deal with constant heartache. They keep hoping for change in a place that will remain the same. -Royal Cortez
This past year I have went through a tremendous amount of growth. My mindset has changed for better or worse. I have seen everything in a different light which has opened my eyes. You can either let certain realizations turn you mad or let them make you grow. Some of the people you love the most are actually toxic. The track I chose as my song of the week represents this perfectly. Had to is a ballad that explains this exact feeling. I gravitated toward the lyrics and mellow production.
Many individuals will feel terrible for cutting ties with former associates. That is understandable reason being no one ever wants to end friendships and relationships that you formerly appreciate. But I see that as a blessing in disguise in a huge way. Once you start distancing yourself from specific people you'll see everything begin to change. If you have a inner circle which puts you down constantly cut them loose. Your peers should be supporting you and assisting in raising your self esteem. If you have a lover that is poisonous let them go and see how quickly your life improves.
Had to is one of my favorite joints from their recent album Guerrilla Gardening. The Band Called Oh is a mighty force with a lot of potential to leave their mark on you. Music is possibly the best medicine for your soul. When you feel pain you listen to artists that are able to aid in getting you through a slump. I chose Had To as my song of the week because it was able to make me see that I made the right decision. This year I have seen myself tell my reflection that I had to. I had to stop being friends with certain friends so I could grow properly. I had to stop talking to certain girls reason being they were stressing me out. This joint will help you make it through the hard days which is amazing.
