Stand Out

This is a Keke Palmer (Akeelah and the bee) song that has so much impact on me.  It talks about self discovery, personality change and people seeing you for who you are and not what they want you to be (acceptability).

If you do not discover yourself, even if someone else does for you,  most likely you won’t understand and appreciate the value you carry. Your first assignment on the road to self actualization is self-discovery, if you can discover yourself, you can actualize your dreams.

“When you discover yourself then you would be yourself, but if you want to be like someone else, the best you can be is second best. It is time you stand out”

Stand Out”

When I see myself in the mirror
Is this really me?
When I take off all my make-up
That’s the person I should be

See, I know once they get to know me
Then they’ll see what I see
I’ll make ‘em all believe the story
And I know that I’m the lead

I’m a bird that’s learning to fly now
I’m getting better everyday
And there’s no taking the time out, yeah
Cause I’ve got too much to change

I’m holding on to what’s real
That’s what matters to me
I’m still searching for me
I’ll search and do anything that I can
I’ve made up my mind
I will take a stand

On this day I’ll finally listen to what’s been calling me
All it takes is letting go of whatever people think of me
This way I’ll stand out and break away to be free
Happiness is what I can’t live without
It’s time to stand out
