Day 56: Who Says

After a reflective week, we’re back to our hundred music challenge and, to celebrate such an occasion, I decided to go with a song from one of my favorite young artists and actress, Selena Gomez.

Our song for today is a pretty upbeat and feel-good one and is entitled, “Who Says“.  It is a pretty good song and it, hopefully, has made people think better of themselves and a lot less prone to making others feel small.

There is a particular scene in the first Princess Diaries movie (one of my favorite movies of all-time) where Princess Mia, after having “transformed” was crying because of what her friend, Lily, had said.  In that scene, after disembarking from the car, her bodyguard (I have totally forgotten his name) comes up to her and tells her: “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”  It’s a pretty nifty thing to say and it doesn’t just work on princesses, it works on all of us as well.

No one can make us feel bad about ourselves–and no one can–unless we let them.  No one can make us feel useless if we feel that we are making a difference because, contrary to what they may say, we are making a difference–even if it is a small one, it is still a difference.  No one can tell us that this is the extent of what we can do, only we know how far we can go.

All those haters out there, they hate you for a reason–because you are someone who has a life, a life that they could want.  In short, they are jealous of you.  All they can do is whine and whine and make other people feel bad about themselves because they (the haters) feel bad about themselves and they don’t want to be the only ones feeling inferior.

Everyone is beautiful.  The only difference is that some people are more beautiful than others.  But, just because their facade is beautiful it doesn’t mean that they are beautiful inside as well.

In the end, face value doesn’t matter.  What matters is how you treat people.  What kind of legacy you leave behind.  Outer beauty degenerates but the beauty of the heart, kindness, humility, compassion–they do not.

Below are the lyrics to the song which Selena Gomez had said was “for all the haters”.

Until the next post, dream on; fly on!

I wouldn’t wanna be anybody else.
You made me insecure
Told me I wasn’t good enough
But who are you to judge
When you’re a diamond in the rough
I’m sure you got some things
You’d like to change about yourself
But when it comes to me
I wouldn’t want to be anybody else

Na na na
Na na na

I’m no beauty queen
I’m just beautiful me

Na na na
Na na na

You’ve got every right
To a beautiful life
C’mon

Who says
Who says you’re not perfect
Who says you’re not worth it
Who says you’re the only one that’s hurting
Trust me
That’s the price of beauty
Who says you’re not pretty
Who says you’re not beautiful
Who says

It’s such a funny thing
How nothing’s funny when it’s you
You tell ‘em what you mean
But they keep whiting out the truth
It’s like a work of art
That never gets to see the light
Keep you beneath the stars
Won’t let you touch the sky

Na na na

Na na na

I’m no beauty queen
I’m just beautiful me

Na na na
Na na na

You’ve got every right
To a beautiful life
C’mon

Who says
Who says you’re not perfect
Who says you’re not worth it
Who says you’re the only one that’s hurting
Trust me
That’s the price of beauty
Who says you’re not pretty
Who says you’re not beautiful

Who says
Who says you’re not start potential
Who says you’re not presidential
Who says you can’t be in movies
Listen to me, listen to me
Who says you don’t pass the test
Who says you can’t be the best
Who said, who said
Won’t you tell me who said that
Yeah, oh

Who says
Who says you’re not perfect
Who says you’re not worth it
Who says you’re the only one that’s hurting
Trust me
That’s the price of beauty
Who says you’re not pretty
Who says you’re not beautiful
