be yourself

Just “Be yourself” by Chris Cornell

About being yourself

In these two years, almost three now, I had touched rock bottom as ever, had to face my own fears, ghosts and shit, but I have to recognize that it’s true that we can learn from anything, also the negative and painful experiences. Although I know I haven’t completely healed yet, what I know is that I’m in a process now, where I’m learning to be myself fully, not the one I was before but my true self. And as I Chris Cornell explain in his song “Be yourself”, to be yourself is the only you can do. For you, to you and also to the others..

I’ve learned a lot of things…

This is a short dialogue between my child’s mind and my heart, which always helps me, supports me and pushes me to grow everyday.

“- What are you looking for?
 – I’m looking for lots of important matters. I’m looking for myself the first thing. Also, I’m looking for Freedom. I’m looking for Love. For Meaning. For Life. I’m looking for Beauty and I’m looking for Light. I’m looking for the Spirit of all things.
– So why are you looking for away from you?”

Everything you’re looking for is in you. Everything you’re looking for IS you…

The song

The lyrics

“Be Yourself”

Someone falls to pieces
Sleeping all alone
Someone kills the pain
Spinning in the silence
To finally drift away

Someone gets excited
In a chapel yard
And catches a bouquet
Another lays a dozen
White roses on a grave

And to be yourself is all that you can do
To be yourself is all that you can do

Someone finds salvation in everyone
Another only pain
Someone tries to hide himself
Down inside himself he prays

Someone swears his true love
Until the end of time
Another runs away
Separate or united?
Healthy or insane?

And to be yourself is all that you can do
To be yourself is all that you can do x3

Even when you’ve paid enough, been pulled apart or been held up
With every single memory of the good or bad faces of luck
Don’t lose any sleep tonight
I’m sure everything will end up alright

You may win or lose

But to be yourself is all that you can do
To be yourself is all that you can do x 5
