When it comes to thinking about giving yourself some credits, Lady Gaga’s ‘Marry The Night’ might as well just sums it up; this song may arguably be one of the biggest, greatest and most perfect underrated self-esteem anthems that have ever been written, as it deals with an issue many people around the world fails to tackle, self-acceptance.

Self-acceptance means

Being aware of one’s strengths and weaknesses, being able to embrace the Good side and the bad side of that person you see inside the mirror every time you want to check on your flaws and things your ‘friends’ might say you need to correct.

How does it feel?

It is like listening to the most important person to you speaking right to your heart, meaning yourself (the only one you have to and should care about), it is like trying to convince the little-scared boy inside you to go on, to notice that life is not a person, not a thing, not a feeling, life is a battlefield, and this may be for sure, the only opportunity you have been given to walk on this Earth, so let them talk, they may think that they know you, but the truth is they don’t, they only noticed what you were bad at, but they cannot even imagine, not even you, what you are capable of when you finally realize that there is nothing left to lose, so whatever it is the choice you make, you just erase the word “regret” of your vocabulary

What is the point?

Easy, you might for sure have been in dark places and think that others might have not, but actually, all of us have as well, Many people have done things they do not feel proud of but they have also come to realize that regretting your actions and feeling sorry for them, instead of making your past turn prettier, it will just make it harder to forget it.

So, in some few words, what this song tries to tell us is to marry the “night”, to marry the bad things people around us say we have and learn to live with those mistakes, you do not see it as a fault, you rather just see it as a tool to evolve into a better version of yourself, do not throw it away, use it, seize it, take advantage of it and no matter what, keep on going, hear what your ‘friends’ say but do not let their words carry your passion away, because at the end of the day the only person you need to feel good about having around is yourself.

There are songs for everyone in this world, songs to make you feel stronger, more powerful and realize that life is even shorter than you think it is, pick yours and press play.
