Before It Gets Better: “Sober” by Seventh Day Slumber

Although addiction is a very common human experience, it's also an uncomfortable one. The process is messy, complicated, disquieting to sit with. That makes it easy to default to wrapping it up in a varnished, shined-up narrative of linear healing: "addicted" to "better." But that is simply not the process most of us live. That's why we need songs like "Sober" from Seventh Day Slumber.

Our heart to those who have personally struggled with suicide is that it is tough right now, there's no denying that. However, it gets better. I think as teenagers and young adult its hard to see just how big the world is. We get so narrow focused on what's right in front of us that we can't even comprehend that we'll ever get past this. But suicide ends the possibility that it'll get better and doesn't allow us to trust the Lord to use us and teach us through those dark times.
