SotD: Jessica Andrews - Who I Am

Posted by: Lilo Lale on: January 13, 2008

Things are going good for me lately. What has changed? Mainly just my attitude.

All my life I’ve always been looking for acceptance from others for numerous reasons. Well, I finally got tired of it and took a long look at myself. Last weekend, lil Chrissy was out of town with my parents, and I had the whole weekend to myself. How did I spend it? Falling in love with me. I know that sounds conceited, but it’s the best thing ever. I am secure in who I am and where I am going. I might go into more details in the future. But the whole if you want others to love you, you have to love yourself makes so much sense now. You can’t just say or convince yourself that you are great or let the opinions of others validate how you feel. You truly have to believe it yourself.

I’m through with doing things to prove myself to others. I don’t care anymore, and in the end it made me feel like a fraud. Great things are coming my way this year related to my personal life, love life, and career. This isn’t just an assumption on my part. It’s a fact.

 

If I live to be a hundred
and never see the seven wonders
that’ll be alright
If I don’t make it to the big leagues
If I never win a grammy
I’m gonna be just fine
Cause I know exactly who I am

Chorus:
I am Rosemary’s granddaughter
the spitting image of my father
and when the day is done
my momma’s still my biggest fan
Sometimes I’m clueless and I’m clumsy
but I’ve got friends that love me
and they know just where I stand
It’s all a part of me
and that’s who I am

Verse 2:
So when I make a big mistake
when I fall flat on my face
I know I’ll be alright
Should my tender heart be broken
I will cry those teardrops knowin’
I will be just fine
’cause nothin’ changes who I am

Chorus:
I am Rosemary’s granddaughter
the spitting image of my father
and when the day is done
my momma’s still my biggest fan
Sometimes I’m clueless and I’m clumsy
but I’ve got friends that love me
and they know just where I stand
It’s all a part of me
and that’s who I am

Bridge:
I’m a saint and I’m a sinner
I’m a loser I’m a winner
I am steady and unstable
I am young but I am able

Chorus:
I am Rosemary’s granddaughter
the spitting image of my father
and when the day is done
my momma’s still my biggest fan
Sometimes I’m clueless and I’m clumsy
but I’ve got friends that love me
and they know where I stand
It’s all a part of me
and that’s who I am

(Repeat Chorus)

That’s who I am

[...] other people. The fear of rejection thing combined with low self esteem. But that was the OLD me. I previously wrote about how I had an ”a ha!” moment. So things are much better now. I’m [...]
