“Can you be better than who you are?” They would ask. “Can you be like him or her?” They would point out.
I grew up surrounded by people telling me to change, to be what I was not. It so deep-seated that the idea of “me” was lost for long, while I was running to be somebody else.
I was not good enough.
Being short, I wanted to be tall, being a dark person I wanted to be fair. Having asian small eyes I wanted to hide my eyes etc., etc…
It took me years realize “You Are Who You Are” and “I Know If I make up my mind , I’ll be fine”
I wrote a song about this and released it on 15th of May, 2020. I tried to talk to myself through this song, tried to make myself remind that “You Are Who You Are”.
Is it a great song? Well, I don’t know but I have connected myself to it and I had fun making it. I hope you would have fun listening to it – give it a listen?
