It's crazy to think that there are songs we know like the back of our hands but can't fully relate to yet. I've been listening to this song since it's release in 2006, and while there were certain aspects that resonated with me, it wasn't 100%...until now. Eventually, the songs we once couldn't relate to are the ones we find ourselves playing over and over again, thanking God that we're not the only ones who feel a certain way. The Wreckers' "Stand Still, Look Pretty" is ON POINT for me right now.
"But people have problems that are worse than mine. I don't want you to think I'm complaning all the time. I hate the way you look at me, I have to say, I wish I could start over."
Sometimes we feel as if we don't deserve to feel a certain way because others have it a lot worse. I can agree to that to an extent, but if you're hurting, don't feel guilty about it. Your feelings are valid.
"Sometimes I find myself shaking in the middle of the night, and then it hits me and I can't even believe this is my life"
I've been having so much anxiety over so many things that I'm at the point where I just want to start my whole life over. I used to say I had no regrets, but lately, I'm feeling as if what seperates me from everyone else is what's going to make me suffer in the end.
"I wish that everyone would go and shut their mouths. I'm not strong enough to deal with it"
It seems like everyone has an opinion on how I should be living my life. I'm finding that I'm a whole lot happier once I shut everyone out.
Although all of this pressure is making me go insane, it's definitely pushed me to want to prove them all wrong. No more standing still and looking pretty...or awkward.
