Alessia Cara - "Scars to Your Beautiful" & Taylor Swift - "Delicate"
So I woke up with “Scars to Your Beautiful” in my head, and it was so strong, this understanding that your faults define you more than your flawlessness ever could, then immediately after I heard “Delicate” and it hit me that if we weren’t delicate, if we weren’t vulnerable, if we didn’t allow ourselves the opportunities to learn by failure, then we wouldn’t be anything like what we are; and I LIKE what we are.
I’m not talking about the royal we, I mean humanity. Yes we’re in a hard, weird, backwards time, where everything feels aggressive and everyone seems angry or on edge, but at our core, we are love.
