Er du stolt af dig selv?

Jeg lyttede til Lukas Graham i går, og nedenstående tekst fik sat nogle tanker i gang.

Vi har sikkert alle sammen noget i bagagen, hvor vi tænker at vi ikke skulle have gjort det, måske skulle vi have gjort det, eller måske skulle vi have gjort det anderledes, men ligegyldigt hvad det er, så har det været med til at gøre dig til den du er i dag.

Den du er i dag, er den du ér, så hvis du ikke bryder dig om den du ser i spejlet, så lad være at tænke over alt det du kunne have gjort anderledes, men start i stedet med at finde ud “hvem” du hellere vil være og gå den vej.

Brug ikke alle dine ressourcer på det du alligevel ikke kan ændre (og din historie kan ikke ændres), så lær at acceptere historien, og brug dine ressourcer på at blive den du gerne vil være. Bliv den du vil være stolt af, når du kigger i spejlet.

Er der noget du skal undskylde for, før du kan gå den vej, så få det gjort nu og gør det fra et kærligt sted indeni dig, så du sikre at modtageren ved at du mener det, (det samme gælder, hvis det er dig selv du skal undskylde overfor), og læg det derefter bag dig og begynd din “rejse” mod den udgave af dig selv, som du allerhelst vil være tilstede i livet med.

Verden har brug for autentiske mennesker, der kan inspirerer, og uden at kende Lukas Graham så inspirere han med sine tekster.

Kærligst Marianne

“Everything That Isn’t Me”

I could have been a better brother
I could have been a better son
I’m sorry for the pain I caused you
And all the worries that I gave you, mom
Every time there was a riot
I couldn’t ever stay at home
I had to run and join the fire
You and dad said no, but I had to go

You were still the best of mothers
And now I know the fear you felt for me
You told me to stay off the streets ’cause
You didn’t like me out there selling weed
I don’t regret the things I’ve done
They made me what I am, you see
I can’t apologize forever
For everything that isn’t me

I could have been a better brother
I could have been a better friend
I hope you know how much I love you
And if you don’t, I really understand
I used to be so bloody selfish
I tried to make it to the top, you see
The only thing I didn’t get is
You’ve always given me the help I need

I should have been a better brother
It’s easy now to see it clear
I’m sorry that I hurt you all and
I’m sorry that I cause you all so many tears
I could apologize forever
For everything I couldn’t be
I can’t apologize forever
For everything that isn’t me

I could have been a better lover
I could have been a better man
I’m sorry that I work so much and
The fact that I never really have a plan
I’m sorry, oh, I’m so sorry
That it’s so hard to say this word
And even with all the things we’ve been through
Sometimes I think that I will never learn

I could have been a better lover
I could have been a better man
I’m gonna be a better father
Hell, I’m doing everything I can
And I will live with this forever
With everything I couldn’t be
I can’t apologize forever
For everything that isn’t me

I could have been a better brother
I could have been a better son
I could have been a better lover
But in the end, I’m your only one
