I chose the first three because of this simple factor, those three main characters are a piece of me. A part of me. And in many ways.
At first, One Piece wasn't something I ever thought that would hit me hard. It did anyways. Not only that, the main character, Monkey D. Luffy became my VERY FIRST idol and inspiration. Why? He may just be 'animated' to many viewers eyes, but to mine he's alive in my mind and heart. He's a part of me. I feel like he's the best friend I've ever had. Not only that, he's why I am who I am today. Without his kindness, friendships, and bravery I wouldn't have ever faced the world with a mere smile up until today. I envy the fact that he accepts everyone DESPITE their obvious flaws...But, to him 'flaws' are what make them. Luffy has a big heart, but you need to look past all the emotional, and physical traits of his.
Believe it or not, InuYasha was probably the first anime that I watched. Well, not really 'watched' but I caught glimpses of it here and there on CN. As I started watching it more, because of Rachel, I felt a huge wave of inspiration from him. InuYasha is like me. He gets jealous easily, acts like a two year old when he's mad, and he can't channel his emotions as well as everyone. Me and Rachel relate ourselves to InuYasha and Kagome. It's a very less known factor about me. But, yes, I do believe we are and can be considered 'InuYasha and Kagome'.
I never thought I'd get into Fullmetal Alchemist as much as One Piece and InuYasha. Why? It wasn't my thing when I looked and read things about it...But, as I went on and watched it I felt that I could relate to Ed loads. I looked past his seer 'tough' exterior to see the amazing person he is.
Of course, everyone of these characters mean something to me.I can relate to them beyond normal levels and the emotions I've felt towards them are unreal. I love them. I wish I could even tell them "Thank you" because they're part of the reason why I am still standing tall, strong, and smiling today. They all taught me, that even if your dreams are 'stupid' and a bit out of reach from what you can do, to say 'Screw that!' and chase after them. Because, if they mean a lot to you, like a person does, that you should follow your dreams. Dreams are your heart, you need it to live and you also need dreams to keep you a live. They also taught me, that while being tough you're also hurting other people. It's okay to be a bit laid back, and open to new ideas, emotions, and people. And lastly, they taught me that...Even if you make a mistake, and screw up big time that there's still a chance if you believe in yourself. That, if you love that thing, or someone that you should try all you can because in the end, it's all worth it.
They all taught me the importance to: friendship, emotions, and most of all, myself. I wouldn't be myself without them to teach me those values and morals that I know today.
Rachel is the most important person in my world, besides my friends.
She's helped me overcome many obstacles: My depression, a bit of my self esteem and lastly my anxiety.
She's just...She's so amazing. I know this is so dang cheesy, but without her I am not myself. I feel so calm, and just...'me' around her. She has the power to turn my sad days, into the happiest without even trying. She's hilarious, loving, beautiful, gorgeous, talented, and everything in between. I know she doesn't believe it, but she's the only exception. She saved my life. When I met her, I was on the brink of breaking again...And then she came around. At first, I hated her and didn't want anything to do with her...but in the end, she ended up loving me more than I love myself. And, these six months were probably most induing of my whole life. I guess you can say, she's the reason I keep on sailing, fighting, and fixing myself. I love you, Rachel.
Paramore was the first band to have ever had a song that fails to make me say "This sucks" or "I don't like this song."
Whelp, this band is also a reason I kept clinging on to life. And because of that, I also grew a new fond love for music as a whole.
I wish to meet Hayley someday. She's also a person I want to tell "Thank you"
I hope you enjoyed.
