Song: "You're Enough" - Me
I've been writing some songs these past few months. Since June I feel like I've been working through my life on the piano. One night in the summer I got super emotional about a guy, and I started to sing about it. It was kinda fun. Writing through my feelings gives me a lot of clarity, so I do it a lot. Pen and paper slow the world for me in ways nothing else seems to be able to. It's kind of a blur how I ended up in front of the piano, but I've randomly been writing songs since that evening. Most of the songs I've written I don't like enough to talk about or do anything with. This voice memo is a skeleton version of something I wrote last month. . .
Last month was really hard for me. I didn't feel safe in my own skin. You could say I was getting bullied. People I cared a lot about said things that really hurt me. I spent most of last month hating mirrors and hiding from people. The comments around me shook everything I valued about myself.
Writing this song helped me work through everything I was feeling at the time. I felt far from myself. All I could care about was what people thought of me. Everything made me question my worth. I didn't want to be around people. I didn't want to go out. I kinda hated everything. I hated that I fixed my hair so often. I hated that I cared. I hated that I let things get so bad. Last month was terrible.
It's not much, but the song helped me a lot. People are jerks sometimes. We don't feel good all the time. Life can get stupid, and heavy. Sometimes we misplace ourselves. If you feel like that right now, I'd like to remind you that "You're Enough." :)
