Beyonce’ Pretty Hurts
Decoding This Song
WOW! The things we do to hurt ourselves to gain approval from others. When I first heard this song a few years ago, it really touched me deeply because I know what it is like to smile….smile….smile when people are around but once everyone was gone, there was a dark cloud of self-hate floating over my head. My Achilles heel was my body image and people-pleasing.
This video shows how we sometimes suffer behind the scenes to have a seemingly perfect public persona. But the question is, once after we get the standing ovation we so desperately needed…..Now What? What have we gained?
