Music can awake not only our deepest dreams but also channel our emotions and actions towards a better future. Loyal, Brave, and True sang by Christina Aguilera is a clear example of how much we doubt our entrepreneurial ability to rise above difficulties, and how much we falter in the intricacies of our existential ups and downs.

“Should I ask myself in the water
What a warrior would do?
Tell me, underneath my armor
Am I loyal, brave and true?
Am I loyal, brave and true?”

Believe it or not, what makes us real women and men is the power within our hands to bounce back and find a new path for success. We are never truly alone on this journey, at least, we should learn how to enjoy our own company.

“Cold is the morning
Warm is the dream
Chasing the answers
‘Til I can’t sleep
Will I be stronger
Or will I be weak
When you’re not with me?

Who am I without my armor?
Standing in my father’s shoes
All I know is that it’s harder
To be loyal, brave and true”

When the harshness of life touches your skin and soul, remember that vulnerability and honesty will be a magnet for people who wants the same as you. There will be a time, a moment where relaxation will allow you to break free from your armor. You are here to live, love, and be free. Be a warrior for your hopes and dreams.

BE YOU!

Loyal, Brave and True!

With all my love,

Alexandra

  1. Vulnerability, and not a shield. A person can be “entered” when they do not take so much pride in that “appearance” or “identity”, that raises a shield. People are so much the prejudiced sorts, and perhaps justifiably so, when those around them never trust. To open oneself up, allow another in, is to take a risk. And, out of a risk, comes a lesson. That is, whether or not to keep what was let in, or to evict it from its residence.

    Yet, we promote pride for identity and appearance, which I believe is promoting prejudice. People who are proud, not vulnerable, not wishing to be judged on faults, are broken, internally. They may have reinforced themselves, outside. Though, that strength is never perfect. It has weaknesses, little cracks, that can be shown blindness to by the person who has raised that guard. That is when they are manipulated and used.

    When a person drops their guard, they can be protected by who loves them. Why would any person, whoever they might be, raise a guard up to distance themselves from their loved ones? It’s sad to look upon when a person has to rely solely on themselves.

    We promote something called “self-love”. But, I truly believe this promotion to weaken people.

      1. “Self-love” is an oxymoron. It falls in line with the term “self-help”, also an oxymoron.

        It proves my point in people attempting to do all on their own.

        Because, how does a person love/help themselves, if they are constantly reading books and magazines, and WordPress articles/posts on how to do this? Obviously, if a person doesn’t know how to love or help themselves, they are going to ask others how to do this. That means, it wasn’t ever self-love or self-help. It was love or help.

        As in, if someone gains advice from another on how to love or help themselves, that wasn’t self-love or self-help. That was love or help. If they did it themselves, they didn’t need such attention pertaining to love or help.

        My point being, that humans are simply incapable of doing all, on their own.

    1. You hit the meaning of this post. And the reality is, no matter how many books you read, or channels of self-help you follow on youtube. It will only work if you do the first step towards change and acceptance. Therapy fails many times exactly because individuals don’t want to look within. It is easier to blame others or circumstances of life than understand they are the ones that provoke catastrophe in their lives.

      “People who are proud, not vulnerable, not wishing to be judged on faults, are broken, internally. They may have reinforced themselves, outside. Though, that strength is never perfect. It has weaknesses, little cracks, that can be shown blindness to by the person who has raised that guard. That is when they are manipulated and used.”: Here I give the example of individuals with attachment trauma, which are: avoidant and fearful-avoidant individuals. I don’t talk about individuals with anxious attachment styles because they can be vulnerable, and with proper emotional education, they can move towards the secure platform of attachment.

      Thank you for your contribution, have a lovely day! 🙂
