This Is Who I Am – Jen’s Anthem

I love music. Who doesn’t, right? Music has the power to touch us, energise us and helps us to connect with each other.

It also has the power to convey emotions and tell a story. This week’s I Must Confess  from Kirsty of My Home Truths, is the soundtrack to our lives. I didn’t have to think too much for a song that I really connect with and what represents me best. For me, the song that really represents me in my life is Vanessa Amorosi’s, ‘This is who I am’.

Vanessa Amorosi

This song is really about someone finally being comfortable enough with themself to tell everyone, this is who I am. Basically, you can take it or leave it, cause this is me.

I connect with this song because it’s where I’m at in my life. What you see is what you get. This is me. You knock me down, I’ll get back up. I care if you think I’m fat, or if you don’t like my clothes, this is me.

I’ve finally learnt it’s okay to be myself. I can stand tall knowing I’m basically a good person. I’m trying to be friends with me and hope that you will be too. I deserve to be free, free from hating myself and just learn to be.

This is who I am

If you haven’t heard this song, then you need to hear it. It’s strong and powerful. I’ve put the lyrics below for you to read.

I’d like to rename it, “Jenster’s Anthem” but I’m not sure how Vanessa will react to that.

Do you connect with this song? I’d love to hear what you think!!

“This Is Who I Am”

I spend my life, trying to do things right
but all I do is fall to my face with my hands on my head so many times
but then I learnt, after being burnt
to get back up and push straight on
stop the tears people move on, on

[Chorus]
Well it’s alright to be myself
now I’ve learnt to stand
well it’s ok to be just who I am
I spent years really hating me
longing to be friends, now I hope that you can understand
This is who I am

Now when life gets tough
I’m quick to hurry up
I run all day, I run through the night
I break down walls, I hit up high
I don’t care if I’m fat, or if you think my clothes are bad
‘cos I can go to sleep at night, I’m a good person and I’ll get by

[Chorus]
Well It’s alright to be myself
now I’ve learnt to stand
well it’s ok to be just who I am
I spent years really hating me
longing to be friends, now I hope that you can understand
This is who I am

Are you someone, are you someone, are you someone, someone like me
you deserve, you deserve, you deserve to be free
cause the world will keep spinning, and you’ll be trapped in it

[Chorus]
Well it’s alright to be myself
now I’ve learnt to stand
well it’s ok to be just who I am
I’ve spent years really hating me
longing to be friends, now I hope that you can understand
This is who I am
