So true!(via mamainwaiting)
I honestly don’t even know…. My parents never said “YOU MUST NEVER DRINK OR DO DRUGS” haha nobody really forbade me from doing it…. At some point I just decided I never would and as I watched other kids and friends get pulled into the grips of partying, I watched them go to rehab, crash cars, get sick, so many awful things. I just saw the consequences so clearly and I knew I never wanted that. Yes, not EVERYONE who drinks goes to rehab, duh. No need to “enlighten” me on such rhetoric. But I’d just rather not risk it, just steer way clear of any chance of that ever happening. I can have just as much fun and enjoy my life just as much as anybody else, if not more, without that stuff. Also it’s very expensive and up until this year I was THE STINGIEST person in the world pretty much so that’s just another of the many reasons I wasn’t into it. Now I’m loosening my grip on my money and time because I’ve learned that closed hands can’t receive. But that’s another story :P
And no I’m not worried about ever getting into it. I’m out of my teen years and I’ve formed my beliefs. It’s not even an option for me.
It’s a mask and a body suit I’m actually a middle aged man
ARE YOU SURE BECAUSE THATS LITERALLY ALL I DO IN A DAY IF I DID ANYTHING ELSE I WOULD SURELY TWEET ABOUT IT OR POST IT ON INSTAGRAM
I was on a walk through my neighborhood and I was in a particularly good mood reflecting on how far I’d come with my self worth. I wrote it in first person like “I am not my makeup, not my clothes, an anonymous face at a concert that no one knows…” It was a little different before Christina reworked it but I love how it turned out. The first verse is everything I wanted to say to young girls struggling with body image. The second verse, I wrote while a van of rehab kids drove by and I could feel their sadness from outside the car. Then I passed someone’s house and I was thinking about his story and his struggle with addictions and how he and so many other people in his shoes feel like a failure even though they’re not at all. It’s everything I wanted to say to people who feel like they’ve been beaten down by life. Like if you crumble up a $20 bill and stomp on it, yeah it’s a little dirty and worn but it’s value is still exactly the same. I want anyone who feels like they’re just too far gone to hear this song and realize they’ve got just as much potential as anybody else and that it’s NOT over for them. That’s basically the message of the song :)
For girls I love Lisa (for real lol), Gisella, Isabella, Jordan, Hunter, Maxine and a lot of others but I’m drawing a blank haha. For boys I like James, Rafael, Michael Angelo (my grandfather), Hercules (great uncle), Miles, Ryan, Caesar, Christian…. Yeah that’s all I got right now haha
Hahahaha I eat what I want, say what I want, do what I want, record, sing, perform, and many other things…. what I want. Hahaha we’re partners not puppets if that makes sense 💪
