“If I can be an example of getting sober, then I can be an example of starting over”
Through the telling of his personal experiences in his music, Macklemore has helped more people than I think he even realizes. He speaks of issues that most artists don’t dare address, same-sex marriage, addiction, recovery, and relapse. The latter 3 are how he initially touched my life. This song is SO powerful, beyond powerful, it can heal, inspire and motivate. It allows someone who has relapsed to know that it’s just a part of their journey and they can start over, they are not alone.
