This song spurred me on to write this,
Yesterday one of my best friends told me he feels like everyone hates him, I told him he should stop telling himself that because they don’t matter,
and you know what? THEY DON’T!
It took me way too long to figure out how to love myself, there was a point in my life where I couldn’t face up to looking at myself without makeup, without a smile on my face, without perfect clothes and perfect eyebrows,
In this world, this society, we’re constantly abused with getting told we aren’t beautfiul,
but true beauty doesn’t depend on your face, it took me years to understand that concept.
These days I tend not to bother with the makeup, just a dab of guilty concealer, but truthfully I am almost at the point that I can say I love myself,
I am slowly falling in love with the girl in the mirror that stares back at me on a morning, the glint in her tired eyes, the hint of a smile on her lips,
I am slowly learning that I don’t have to be stick thin or curvey,
I just have to be me.
