The meaning behind this song is just that feeling that nothing ever goes right but yet you just push through it with a positive attitude until it starts to turn around for the better. It's also about heartbreak and being alone and trying to deal with the harsh reality of moving on from someone that you truly loved. Going from being in a deep loving relationship into having nobody is a very tough struggle. Some people can hide it well and some people cannot. No matter how much you say you're okay, the fact is most of the time you are only pretending that you're okay just to get by. When you are left in your own head to wonder and try to answer the question of "Why?", then it gets really difficult to look inside yourself and not think that there is something wrong with you. Why else would they leave? What's better about the person they left you for? Why wont they even try to make things work? These are questions you ask yourself. And you wonder about where they are and who they're with and if they are happier with their new life. Going on about your daily life becomes very difficult and you dont want to talk about it so you act like everything is fine. That's basically what the song is about.
I went through a severe heartbreak. I got really sick. I lost a scary amount of weight and I was not doing well for a while. I lost my car, I was months behind on all my bills, and I would've lost my apartment if it wasnt for my landlord being so nice. I had a very bad falling out. And then when I was at my absolute lowest point, I realized that I am not being the best person I can be and it shows. So I made it a point to get myself better and turn things around. I got healthy, I was exercising daily, I started writing again and that is when I got the inspiration for this song.
