Kelly Clarkson has a number of powerful anthems, but ‘People Like Us’ is perhaps one of her most relatable singles. We have all had those times of self-doubt after being kicked down by someone’s insensitivity. We’ve all had those moments of failure, when we wonder whether there is any point in trying anymore. We’ve all had those times of loneliness, where we feel as if nobody understands us and that we are left to fight our battles on our own. We’ve all had those moments of isolation, feeling different and unaccepted. We are not alone. People will always try to criticise, judge and bring others down for the things they cannot understand, for the things they are insecure about or fearful of. And worst of all, we begin to believe them, becoming our own worst enemies. But we cannot let those people rule our lives. This is the time for picking ourselves back up, the moment for learning from our experiences, and the time for ignoring the hate and skepticism. It is ok to be different. Never give up on what you believe in and what you want to achieve. We are always in control. Your opinion is as valuable as anybody else’s. Take your turn.
