My husband is forever the man who will hear a song and can relate that song to his life experiences. This particular song he relates to both of us – my struggle with Bipolar and his struggle and feelings of helplessness while dealing with my illness. This interpretation helped me to see HIS perspective on living with my illness. And sometimes it is so important to see things in a different light.
