Naruto OST — Sadness and Sorrow — My Perspective

The Song:

I have never cried that much in my life as when watching naruto or hearing this song lol.

It’s become a part of my ritual to cope with sad times in life. I feel like this song kinda gives me “permission” to cry.

I try to keep steady and stoic throughout bad times, but I need a way to express those emotions when the dust settles.

It’s been like this through my childhood, teenage years, college, and beyond.

Losing friends, relatives. Bad breakups.

It is a song that tells me “hey it’s okay”.

Almost like a hug.

Naruto changed my life for the better. Helped me deal with bad times, pick myself up, become good at something, and then help others.

All I have is gratitude.
