Still I rise
"Still I rise, still I fight,
Still I might, crack a smile,
Keep my eyes, on the prize,
See my haters, tell 'em 'hi',
One day you'll remember this,
One day when we remenisce,
Nothing I do ever is,
Good enough for the music biz."
This is more than a song to me. This chorus is what I repeat in my head when I feel that the world is against me and it pushes me to power on. People find their strengths in many different forms and ways. I found mine through Nicki's music.
Being a Philippino background girl born in Australia (first child) EVERYTHING was hard for me. My parents taught me the Filipino ways while at school I was taught different. My mother taught me to be forgiving and kind and my father pushed me to do my hardest at everything. He always wanted me to be famous as a child, reality kicked in when he realised I had no self confidence. Which is why I got picked on a lot.
In school we weren't taught much about how to deal with bullies and at 24 I still find myself bullied. Note to everyone, bullying doesn't stop at high school for some.
What I'm trying to get at with this entry is that when you think that the world is against you and no one knows how you feel IT'S NOT TRUE. There are plenty of people out there that are bullied and kicked when their down, it's just how you handle it that determines how strong you are. The mind is a powerful thing, it's like a muscle. Train a muscle well and it'll be strong and powerful. Neglect and abuse it and it'll be weak and virtually useless. Try repeating positive quotes or even repeating "I CAN" over and over when you feel like giving up. Over time, when you really put your mind to it, life will become better.
