Generally it’s laborious to place a finger on what precisely is dogging you. It’s a tangled ball of string that takes time to unravel, and a few knots could by no means totally come undone.”

For Jones, simply realizing life received’t final eternally is oddly comforting. “Although scary, it makes me really feel extra alive,” she says. “Recover from your self and get busy dwelling—a minimum of, that’s what I wanted to listen to … and the place the core of ‘Say Sure’ comes from.”
