Quote by Jodi Picoult
Sometimes I think my whole life has been about holding on to you.
This quote suggests that the speaker's existence, purpose, and happiness have revolved around the person they are referring to. Holding on to this person is perceived as a crucial aspect of the speaker's life, indicating a deep emotional attachment and dependency. It implies that their entire journey, experiences, and decisions have been influenced or motivated by their connection to this person, highlighting the importance and significance of their presence in the speaker's life.
The demons of despair will always try to hold you back from enjoying your life. Either they will try to haunt you with your failures of your past or torment you with your worries of the future. Refuse to entertain them by rising above and staying in the present. They can't have any power over you...if you don't allow them to!

I basically get stereotyped a lot in terms of being a girl and writing 'chick' music for teenage girls or something. I think, if anything, the press kind of, because of my gender and my age, tends to kind of relegate my work to this sort of special-interest group. It's part of the cultural dynamic, I guess.
