Moving Beyond Perfection

Wow

Posted in Uncategorized by Kathy on August 10, 2009

I’m still chugging along with my internship (last week!), but I just came across this song, “Courage” by Superchick because I fell in love with “Cross the Line” ….. and wow. I just had to share. It’s extremely moving for me. It may not be representative of how I feel anymore, but I can definitely relate to these words. No, I never starved myself – but the emotions.. of crying alone, of insecurity, of feeling lost, of suddenly feeling unbeautiful – those were all real feelings.

Courage- by Superchick

I told another lie today
And I got through this day
No one saw through my games
I know the right words to say
Like “I don’t feel well”
“I ate before I came”

Then someone tells me how good I look
and for a moment
For a moment I am happy
But when I’m alone
No one hears me cry

I need you to know
I’m not through the night
Some days I’m still fighting to walk towards the light
I need you to know
That we’ll be okay
Together we can make it through another day

I don’t know the first time I felt unbeautiful
The day I chose not to eat
What I do know is how I changed my life forever
I know I should know better
There are days when I’m okay
And for a moment
For a moment I find hope
But there are days when I’m not okay
And I need your help
So I’m letting go

I need you to know
I’m not through the night
Some days I’m still fighting to walk towards the light
I need you to know
That we’ll be okay
Together we can make it through another day

You should know you’re not on your own
These secrets are walls that keep us alone
I don’t know when but I know now
Together we’ll make it through somehow
Together we’ll make it through somehow

I need you to know
I’m not through the night
Some days I’m still fighting to walk towards the light
I need you to know
That we’ll be okay
Together we can make it through another day
