Music Mondays - Superchick's Courage

I downloaded this song in February when Superchick was offering a free download in honor of National Eating Disorder Awareness Month. It's about one of the band's member's struggle with anorexia. It's a very sad sounding song, but I liked it. I haven't listened to it much since then, but Monday I put it on and became hooked again.


I've never had an eating disorder before, and I don't plan to, but I can really relate the chorus. I don't open up much - it is a huge struggle just to admit that I'm sad sometimes - but sometimes I just want someone to know. Even if they can't do anything about it I want them to know that I'm sad, or scared, or worried because that means I won't be so alone.

I don't usually quote a different song than I posted on Mondays, but the first verse of How Do We Do This by Sterling Knight sounds a lot like me:

I’m used to being on my own
keeping my heart shut down
if I don’t go there
I won’t get hurt
but the pretty girl said
if you’re never ever ever get hurt again
are you ever gonna feel another thing my friend
and I like, the way, she talks

From now on I'm going to listen to the pretty girl in my life. I'm going to open up and talk.
