    Imagine Dragons music helping me through my hard time

    Hello Imagine Dragons fans!

    I just wanted to share a story of mine with Imagine Dragons music helping my through this hard time. (Sorry, but there will be a lot of story )
    Beginning of this year I was in love with this girl and I didn't know what to do - didn't have any experience with being in "real" love (both me and her are 17 y/o), etc.
    Yeah as I said I didn't know what to do, I was just thinking of this girl all day long with hindering me to do anything at school (studying, paying attention during class).
    Then in February I discovered Imagine Dragons. I already knew some songs of them ofcourse like Radioactive, Demons, On Top Of The World and It's Time. First I listened to Smoke + Mirrors (which came out around that time) and I really liked the songs. After that I listened to Night Visions and it was also great music...



    Then I also discovered the old Imagine Dragons EPs on Youtube! And there was this one song which I instantly loved called Leave Me - which is my favourite song today! I remember one day when my crush suddenly texted me and we wrote on Whats App all day long - and then she asked if we could meet. I was so happy when I read that message. I was feeling so happy, but also knew in the same time that it was only a meeting between two friends.
    The whole way to the cafe I listen to Imagine Dragons songs and it made me feeling so good and I really felt like nothing could go wrong. It was a great day we laughed, talked about different topics and it was real fun!



    Unfortunately I knew that she isn't interested in me after I wrote her a week after and it was like every other conversation - this was a pretty tough moment. I was annoyed by everything in my life, I was sad, I had every feeling there is on the world (probably a mixture with puberty). Well, I didn't really want to believe that we probably won't ever be together and so I wanted to tell her that I have a crush on her (probably because I was so frustrated). After some days I finally decided to ask her if we could meet and that I need to tell her something really important.
    I can remember when I already wrote the message but I didn't want to sent it, because I had no idea what the answer would be. Suddenly It's Time came on my playlist and there was this line "It's time to begin, isn't it" and I thought that this line was basically made for me in this situation and I just sent the message.



    This meeting with the girl was so awkward for me. I really had the confidence to tell her my feelings when I was going to the restaurant, but somehow when she asked me what the important thing is that I need to tell her, I couldn't tell her anything of that - so I told her some bullshit that unfortunately I cannot tell her right now, because it's not yet time... I mean she still had fun, which was a nice thing to hear, but I felt so sh*t after that meeting... like I fucked up big time and I was even more frustrated after this meeting... After that I discovered the Imagine Dragons concert at Lollapalooza, which gave me strength again to call her and tell her what I feel (especially Song 2 and Radioactive! )



    So I told her and I was so nervous... I never was so nervous before... I just needed a few words to tell her, but this were the hardest words in my life so far! Anyways it did feel great when I was talking with her about that topic (okay it was awkward for both of us, because this was the first time we talked with the other gender about things like that) - however she also told me that she doesn't like me the same way as I do. I mean I knew that before, so in the first days this was no problem to deal with that news. After some days I think I realized what this means... The whole year I was in love with her I thought in the end we come together and we will be happy, but then I knew that this probably won't ever happen. (seems like I found out that you cannot get everything you want in life )
    This was the hardest time of the last year for sure... I didn't listen to the happy songs like Leave Me, On Top Of The World, Look How Far We've Come, etc. I listened to sad and dark songs from Imagine Dragons, which is unusual for me.



    I started to look up after some lyrics of Imagine Dragons songs while listening to them and then I was at Amsterdams lyrics and I really need to say a big thank you to Imagine Dragons for that song... "Your time will come if you wait for it" gave me all my strength I lost, back and I knew that this was just a hard time I need to go through, but in the end I will learn something with this experience I made. Everytime I listen to Imagine Dragons this girl will go into my head, but also the other way around. In the end she will always be a part of my life and the same goes with Imagine Dragons. I won't give up on her (don't know how I'll do it though) - just this time with the difference that I know that there is no need to be frustrated (sad, whatever) with myself when I mess up or things doesn't go as planned!


    THANK YOU IMAGINE DRAGONS FOR GIVING ME STRENGTH AND CONFIDENCE WITH YOUR MUSIC!!


    If anyone read the whole topic I want to thank you for reading my post and sorry for my horrible english I've written there with wrong tenses (it is 1:30 AM).
    Have a great day everyone!

    Thank you for sharing your story with us. I have to admit I was on the brink just waiting for you to tell us it was all perfect and she felt the same way. But someday it will all play out the way it was meant to be, and you will look back with fond memories of how it went. Falling in love is never perfect, but remember to love yourself no matter what! This girl sounds very sweet and it sounds like you will always have a connection, being friends or more than friends, who knows what the "Stars" have waiting for you in the future. I wish you all the best!

    Thank you very much for sharing this story with us, it was very brave and honest! It was amazing to read how you tried to fight with your own fears and awkward moments, how you got strength and courage with help of Imagine Dragons songs. Although this story does not have a happy ending(YET), I hope that after a while it will all come to much happier days.
    Your time will come if you wait for it!
    Very true words, and I actually believe in them myself!
    Thanks again for sharing, and have all the best in 2016 Year!
    Imagine Dragons saved my life.(c)

    I'm ready for the Fall
