Just Stay the Same

Joey Mcintyre - Stay The Same - ...

Stay The Same

Don't you ever wish you were someone else,
You were meant to be the way you are exactly.
Don't you ever say you don't like the way you are. 
When you learn to love yourself, you're better off by far.
And I hope you always stay the same, 
cuz there's nothin' 'bout you I would change.

I think that you could be whatever you wanted to be
if you could realize, all the dreams you have inside.
Don't be afraid if you've got something to say,
Just open up your heart and let it show you the way.


Believe in yourself.
Reach down inside.
The love you find will set you free.
Believe in yourself, you will come alive.
Have faith in what you do.
You'll make it through.

I heard a song from Boyzone last night when we’re listening to the radio and I remember this song.  At first I thought this song is from Savage Garden but I was wrong. I hurriedly searched the song on Google using my phone since I can’t use the desktop cause I’m really tired and ready to hit the hay and tada the song is from Joey Mcintyre. 
One of my college professors liked this song she even told us to listen to the words and the meaning of the song. I heard this song when I was still in high school but didn’t give it much credit.

When finally I had the chance to listen to the song again, I realized it has a very wonderful message.“Don't you ever wish you were someone else”, sometimes I wanted to be someone else, someone who’s more attractive, famous, wealthy and smart but really I’m just fond of day dreaming even now I frequently do that. I thought if I were someone else I have this assumption that people will like me and that they’ll treat me nicely.
I have a very sad experience in the past which made me decide to be someone else, I even say I don’t like the way that I am. I questioned my capabilities and that I must work hard so that others will appreciate me. But it didn’t happen as expected, when I was in Grade 6, we were exchanging cards that time and the word “don’t change your good attitude” is always there. I was really puzzled, do I have that good attitude or maybe my classmates back then don’t know what else to say or they just ran out of adjectives. Whatever it is I feel glad and that I don’t have to be someone else for them to like me and I guess they really enjoy my company. 

The answer is you have to be yourself regardless of the scary fact that one little slip they’ll dislike you and eventually won’t even care to make friends with you. “When you learn to love yourself, you're better off by far” I learned to love myself more back then even though I’m not the very popular girl in the class.

My friends are telling me I hope you always stay the same and like there's nothin' about you we would change. It helped me a lot to grow and act/think more maturely. Even now I kept all the letters which reminds me of who I am back then. I hope I am the same person but I hope I changed a lot better. I love this song the words and melody reminds me of being me always though others may not appreciate me that much or judge me instantly but  I know in the eyes of God who created me, He loves me for who I am notwithstanding the imperfection that I have. I just hope this song will imprint something in a way of reflecting yourself one way or another just like the way it had created a very good impression on me.

 Enjoy and Ponder ^^
