Lady Gaga – Til It Happens to You
Disclaimer: The video shows graphic and triggering scenes that involve traumatic events in sexual assault. Suppose you are prone to these triggers. Please do not watch this song of the day. I have included the lyric version of the video below.
One of the things that many people don’t understand or refuse to understand is, “Don’t let people have power in what they make you feel.” Which is the advice given with good intention. But not everyone is programmed the same way. Or has walked the same path that others have gone through. Which the truth of the matter is that people have found other coping mechanisms that have worked for them. In the end, as life continues and although they may not express these onset traumas, one thing that has been psychologically proven is that the motivation that has them not deal with these certain situations has those filling some void or lack of characteristic. Many people continue to avoid conflicts allowing and tolerating negative behaviors and engaging in these behaviors to self-preserve and avoid being vulnerable.
In many cases, they may understand but refuse to have those events come back as the truth is through that tough exterior. The thought of that traumatic event would tear their world apart. Which if it’s happened to you, I understand your intention. But don’t let this event crumble your world anymore. Face it in your own time and on your terms. And those who can’t relate, just lend a non-judgemental ear. Because God forbid if it happens to you, you have someone who can help you get through that traumatic hurdle. In the spirit of today’s blog makes today’s song of the day is Lady Gaga’s “Til It Happens To You.”
