Quote by Chris Carrabba
I was onstage and I was shocked; it hurt so badly. I thought: Why am I doing this? Why do I sing about needing to get better so she'll come back? That's a real problem I have. I don't need to get better - I need to find someone who likes me the way I am, someone who finds Chris desirable.
In this quote, the speaker reflects on a moment of self-realization while performing on stage. The experience made them question the motive behind singing about personal improvement solely to win the affections of someone. The realization dawns that instead of trying to change oneself to fit someone else's expectations, the focus should be on finding someone who appreciates and accepts them as they are. It highlights the importance of self-acceptance and finding genuine connections based on mutual love and admiration.
It gets better. It seems hard, you know, I think being different is always gonna be a tough climb. There's always gonna be people that are scared of it. But at the end of the day you give those bullies, those people, that are so ignorant, if you give them the power to affect you, you're letting them win. And they don't deserve that. What you're doing by being yourself is you're keeping it real, and you're being really brave.
