This man is Shayley Bourget. He is the ex bassist/vocalist of Of Mice & Men. He left the band without much of an explanation  but then went on to create a video from which this gif was made from. In this video, he says that he left the band because of ‘personal issues’. He then explains further what these personal issues are. Shayley left the band because he was in constant agony with back pain, he was battling with severe depression and suffering with anxiety. Although I don’t have the back pains, I do have depression and anxiety. Most people when they watch this video automatically judge Shay on the way he just gave up. Me, on the other hand, I was proud of him for ‘giving up’. He left the band for a good reason. He left it for his fans- who of course would miss him. But he knew that if he didn’t leave the band, he would not only have ended up killing himself, but in the process he would have probably killed fans inside. Basically what I’m trying to say, is that regardless of the fact this man gave up on what he loved to do, he was proving that he can do what’s right, and he’s motivated to get his life back on track. He could have carried on and just ended up committing suicide, or just getting a hell of a lot worse. So what if he left the band almost two years ago? Sure the band will never ever be the same again, but he taught me that no matter how bad it’s gonna get, you can turn it around and start again. I love him more than anything in the world. He’s beautiful, and he’s fucking perfect, and I swear, if it wasn’t for him. I would definitely be dead. I would have killed myself a long time ago. He will always be my hero, he will always be my inspiration.
