As an elementary school student I grew up listening to Wow Hits. This led to one of my favourite songs being “We Live” by Superchick. Besides that song I didn't really listen to any of their music. But in middle school that changed.
I remember being introduced to another one of their songs called “Stand in the Rain”. This song talks about a girl going through a depressing time in her life. It talks about how she’s slowly breaking and nobody knows.
When I was told about this song it was more because songs make good conversation than anything else. But since then I’ve listened to this song tens of times; it’s consistently been a source of encouragement.
It’s amazing how the things we say that seem insignificant to us can be the things that keep others going. The things you say may encourage someone to keep improving a talent, or improving themselves, or keep them from a huge emotional breakdown.
Not everything that comes out of any of our mouths or that we write will be profound. And we may never know about the things we said and wrote that were. All we can do is try and be aware of others and do our best.
In my eyes it's the simple thoughts, the simple actions, the simple words, the simple phrases that hold the most weight - that change the world, a world.
