What do you do when you just can’t get someone to understand something important? Well, for me, I pray about it and ask God to give me the words or the deeds that make the message abundantly clear to them. This song became one of those things!
I know many folks who are amazing. They are beautiful people who have such great things to share with the world. They are gifted with various traits and abilities that leave impacts on the people around them but they just can’t seem to see that for themselves. They are so caught up in doing the “right” things, the expected things, that they put on masks and become what everyone around them needs them to be instead of being who they are.
I wrote this song for a very special friend to try and get her to understand that I saw the real her, who she was behind all the masks and roles she put on in life. Through the experience I found, once again, that God has a sense of humor! After I sang it for her, she turned the tables on me and hit me with my own words, saying it was exactly what she had wanted to say to ME! It was a shocking but truly wonderful moment. Now when I listen to the song I am reminded to live my own life authentically, without apologies for who I was created to be.
