I know there'd be no Dream Theater.

If only there was a way to go back in time and stop Rush from ever forming!

This is a very somber response, but there is a good chance that I might not be here if it were not for the inspiration of Rush.  During my college years, I was going through some very rough times.  Today, I can see them for what they were, but in the middle of them, I was incredibly depressed.  At one point I had reached the brink and was seriously contemplating suicide.  However, thinking of the lyrics of The Pass is one of the few things that kept me going.

Why were you depressed? How did you shake it off?

I've always taken things (including myself) way too seriously at times and always judged myself by high standards, which I often didn't meet.  It was much worse in college when I didn't have any true friends and struggled to connect to anyone.

I'm not sure how I shook it off other than to take each day one at a time.  It helped that I had (and still have) a family that cares for me, someone I can talk to, although I often didn't always feel like it at the time. It took me years to reveal how deeply depressed I was, and I shouldn't be that surprised that they (including mother) knew.  I still had bouts of depression here and there until I found my true calling in life, which was to be a teacher, for which I am grateful.  I am still a bit of a loner, but I've come to accept that isn't necessarily a bad thing.
