I Want to Be Somebody Else

Accepting sometimes we are our own worst enemies.

I wish I could sing.

I wish I was gifted with the voice to rock out on karaoke night, with a few dance moves to compliment it too.

But the best I can do is belt it out to myself in the car where no one else can hear me.

Music artists have a gift to express their life journey and vulnerability through the songs they compose and sing. Much like writers, there’s power in connecting and exposing our guts and soul.

I unlocked a core memory when an oldie but a goodie came on. P!NK has a way with her words with which I resonate. I love almost every single one of her hits. Don’t Let Me Get Me made me stop and reflect, once again.

Every day I fight a war against the mirror
I can’t take the person starring back at me
I’m a hazard to myself
Don’t let me get me
I’m my own worst enemy

I know I suffered from depression and anxiety. I know in many ways I still do, but I’m much better at managing it.
