Just Words. =3

Stay The Same.

After the JR gathering, We were in Hui Kia’s car when I heard this old song by Joey McIntyre. And it brought me back to the yesteryears. Not that I’m that old, but eh, it feels that long ago. =3

It made me think back on last time, when I was around.. primary school, I think, and when I wasn’t too happy with my life. I used to cry whenever I heard that song, because it tells you to believe in yourself and be happy with who you are; and not wish you were someone else, because you’re good just the way you are.

I used to think: “How can I be happy with who I am when everyone seems to be against it? Why won’t anyone accept me the way I am?” And keep in mind that this is a primary student’s thinking.

And listening to it now, after all these years, it still makes me teary. Because truthfully, I was never able to get over that little barrier: I was never confident with myself. I would do my best, yes, but I would not be a 100% confident about myself. All those years of being put down and ridiculed in public; those scars could never ever fully go away nor heal. Listening to that song earlier today, it still makes me upset. I want so badly to be able to hold my head up high, confident, like some of my friends are, but I could never seem to do it for long, before being crushed back to insecurities.

It’s pathetic, I know. I am able to encourage my friends to have confidence in themselves, while I struggle with mine.

The lyrics to the song goes like this:

Don’t you ever wish
You were someone else?
You were meant to be
The way you are exactly
Don’t you ever say
You don’t like the way you are
When you learn to love yourself
You’re better off by far

And I hope you’ll always stay the same
‘Cos there’s nothing ’bout you I would change

I think that you could be
Whatever you wanted to be
If you could realise
All the dreams you have inside
Don’t be afraid
If you’ve got something to say
Just open up your heart and let it show you the way

Don’t you ever wish
You were someone else?
You were meant to be
The way you are exactly
Don’t you ever say
You don’t like the way you are
When you learn to love yourself
You’re better off by far

And I hope you’ll always stay the same
‘Cos there’s nothing ’bout you I would change

Believe in yourself
Reach down inside
The love you found will set you free
Believe in yourself
You will come alive
Have faith in what you do
You’ll make it through

I can’t seem to post the video, because all the videos of this song seemed to be disabled for embedding. =_= But search it up in YouTube; you’ll be sure to find it.
