Don't Leave Me Lonely - Music Video by Scott Thiessen

This year I am thankful for my friends and family! Moving away is hard. You lose a lot of the foundation that gave you the capability to walk. When I moved to Toronto, I didn’t notice it at first. I was able to find new relationships that were sustaining me. It was still hard, but I wasn’t worried. As time went on, schedules moved around, life progressed, and relationships changed, but as this happened, I didn’t see the change in myself, I felt a difference, but I couldn’t see how I was responding. I felt scared most days. I was worried I wasn’t gonna make it in my new city, that I would have to move back home. That was the last thing I wanted, and I panicked. I became too dependant on the people I had in my life to sustain me, and because of this, I lost a friendship that meant a great deal to me. After that, I felt like the foundation I had just started to establish washed away from under me. Life moving too fast is one thing, losing a friend is on another level, and I didn’t know if I had enough to keep me going. It hurt, but I decided I couldn’t let this happen again. So I started working on myself, doing more self reflection and trying to find the ways I could be more dependant on myself rather than others. I didn’t want to fall down again. It didn’t happen over night, and it still hasn’t “happened”, but I’m working on it. No one can sustain themselves on their own, but I do think it’s important that you’re able to when you can’t get a hand from someone else.   I wish I could go back in time and do it over with what I know now and say how I was feeling when it counted. But I can’t. I think its too late for that now, but if it wasn’t, I would go back and say everything in this song. This is “Don’t Leave Me Lonely” and its dedicated to all the people who’ve ever been apart of my foundation. I hold these memories close ❤️ (I couldn’t find videos of everyone, I tried so hard! I’m sorry if you’re left out😔) Listen to "Don't Leave Me Lonely" off of my new EP "Summertime Madness 2" on Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal and anywhere else music is sold/streamed! or visit www.scottthiessen.ca
