Tim Martinez opens up about to The You Rock Foundation about the flux of light and dark times in his life. Well known for his work in the New York music scene, Tim describes his encounters with Marylin Manson and Otep, two of the bands that saved his life. He also goes on to discuss getting better doesn't not necessarily mean the absence of all fear and anxiety, but rather an understanding of balance between dark and light times, “There’s this weird balance, that’s not balanced at all, but with dark times and good times one always seems to follow the other. A lot of the time it seems the dark times aren’t always going to go away, but they eventually do and the good times do tend to roll in and start to happen. On thing I’ve learned in my life, at 37 years old now, is, you gotta focus on the good. Even though it doesn’t seem like there is much good as there is bad and dark, but even those little slivers of brightness and sunshine and happiness… you gotta hold on to them. That’s what makes life worth living in my opinion.”
