#STH SPEAK.

Songs that helped.

This one is dedicated to my HS bff, Megan.

This song is what motivated me to start this blog btw.

I have always been so afraid to share my truth with others but I still felt inclined to do so, and the response I have been getting since makes me realize why I needed to. I used to say, even if I just help one person with their own struggles with depression, that I would be ok.

I like to think I have done just that.

Sharing my truth has not only brought me a sense of freedom but it has also inspired others to be more vulnerable themselves. And I am so happy for them. Speaking up helps.

I have totally gotten over the idea of learning to be ok with being alone. NO! We need people. Not necessarily a significant other but friends, family, someone. Even if that someone is a therapist. We need to share our stories, our pain. I feel like it’s the only way we can find healing.

I could have been writing these posts down in a journal which I’m sure will be helpful but getting a message from a friend saying she is with me, or a comment saying they need this blog makes is so much better. That sense of connection really does it for me.

SPEAK

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, ooh, ooh, ahh

Woke up this morning
Heart was beating out my chest
So excited, realizing
That you weren’t here to judge me

No one to impress (how I felt being off of social media)
I decided 
that I liked it, yeahI’m moving on
I’m putting on my favorite dress
The one you hated
Said, I look naked in
Fuck your opinion ’bout it
I’m feeling my best
I won’t hide it
And besides that

Look how the sun
Rises without our asking
Shining with so much passion
Light just for us to bask in
Love shouldn’t be for our keeping
I’ll celebrate my freedom
I’m gon’ speak up

Speak from my heart, baby
Speak from my soul, sugar
Say what you want, lady
Act like you know who you are
(ACT LIKE YOU KNOW WHO TF YOU ARE)
Speak from your gut, honey
Say what you want, my love
Be who you wanna be
(be you.)
Speak, speak, speak, speak
Be free

I’m moving on
I’m putting on my favorite dress
The one you hated
Said I look naked in

Free, yeah
Be free my love
Be free
Free
FreeI’m moving on I’m
Free
I’m moving on I’m putting on my, free
I’m moving on I’m putting on my, free
I’m moving on I’m putting on my, free
I’m moving on I’m putting on my, free
Free, yeah
