Hi everyone. :)
I thought I'd just write a little bit to go along with the song I've just posted. - Not so much an explanation, but other thoughts on identity etc....
You probably already know that it's something that interests/puzzles/frustrates me. Lol. "Pushing, pulling with my conscience just to find what's underneath..." Trying to work out who you truly are...feeling as though you have to find a place to fit it...maintaining your uniqueness...
It's all a bit confusing really. If you worry too much about being true to yourself, ignoring influences/advice from others, you can end up isolating yourself - and feeling unhappy about who you are.
Sometimes I feel as though I'm deceiving people with my appearance/the way I come across...I think that's why I like to try out lots of different styles. I'm showing people the different sides of me, and exploring my identity at the same time.
I have a friend who (no, it's not me. Lol) genuinely thinks she's inferior to those around her, and can't seem to value herself for who she is. She doesn't seem unhappy, but has sort of accepted herself as 'inferior' and just carries on leading her life, goes out, has fun as per norm. I get a bit frustrated with this, and try to ask exactly what it is that makes her feel a lesser being than those around her...but she just says..."I know I'm not really, but it's hard."
And I was thinking then - 'who am I to talk?' I'm always trying to stop myself feeling inferior.
Anyhow. I'm trying to say stuff, but I don't think I'm actually saying it. Lol. So I'd best be off for now...if you have any thoughts on the topic, then they'd be great to hear in the comments box - perhaps we could have a little discussion. :)
P.S - These lyrics just came on the radio...how ironic... Lol
Everybody's searching for a hero
People need someone to look up to
I never found anyone to fulfill my needs
A lonely place to be
So I learned to depend on me
