“Maybe we are the ones who are ugly.”
This is Gonna Hurt
The book “This is Gonna Hurt” was written by Nikki Sixx after his recovery from the drug addiction and, to be honest, this book is the one that can change your perception of life, people and beauty.
A lot of people who recovered from any addiction try to find their new way in creativity. Even though Nikki is the one and only who wrote songs for Motley Crue and SIXX: A.M., he also shows and explains the world the meaning of inner beauty, by showing people with hard level disabilities in the most beautiful way you could ever imagine. If you wish to see his works, you can go either to his account nikkisixxphotography or to buy this book, that I would personally suggest, as it will give you amazing lessons and ideas. Except that, in the book, you can see the lyrics of the book, new chapters of Nikki’s life as well as his perception of beauty itself.
I remember on the day when I finished this book about nine years ago, I came to college meeting where we were introduced to the swimming champion of Australia. Unfortunately, I do not remember her name, BUT she appeared in my life so unexpectedly that I could not stop listening to her. She did not have right leg and left wrist; her right-hand fingers were spliced in a next way: little finger with the ring and middle ones and forefinger with the thumb. She told us how her parents did not let doctors to ‘kill’ her when she was born this way and were happy to support her in anything. That is how she became a professional swimmer and the champion of Australia. I spoke with her a bit and was so glad to see a person like her being happy and productive, trying to achieve the best! When I was leaving the meeting auditory, I literally heard the voice of Nikki Sixx in my head: ”Are you with me now?”
