Strong… or not

How may times do you pretend to be strong when really underneath you’re a mess?

Who are you being strong for?

How long can you keep up the mask?

See what Robbie Williams say’s in his song “Strong”

And you know and you know
Cos my life’s a mess
And I’m trying to grow

You think that I’m strong you’re wrong
You’re wrong
I’ll sing my song my song my song

In this positive and bright sounding piece of music Robbie confesses to the inner battles he is going through.

Perhaps we should admit to our own issues remove the masks and get help if we need it. We all go through the “dark night of the soul” from time to time, pride will keep you in it.

Have a listen to the “Strong” video below.
