I had a very dark phase in my life when I was about 13 years old. I wore black all the time, listened to metal bands like System of a Down, Mudvayne, Korn, Disturbed, Deftones etc the heavier the better. I loved rock music (Still do) but being a vulnerable teenager who gets easily influenced by these bands, I learned some skills like talking back, swearing, having the "being bad is cool" mindset, self harm, doodling satanic symbols, pretty much anything an annoying "emo" kid finds cool. It was so bad that my parents literally tried to "exorcise" me and burned all my black clothes and music cd's (Had about 113 discs for my cd player lol) My mom banned me from wearing black clothing for quite some time. I am actually so glad I got over that phase. Now I get to look back at how ridiculous and retarded I was. Anywho, I am now back to wearing black but more for the fashionable statement it creates rather than just being "emo". And today I wear white for my amazing mother who guided me and set me straight whenever I did stupid shit and for always loving me no matter what and being my support. Happy Mother's day mom I love you so much!
