How was your childhood’s life? Was it good? Memorable? Or bad? I think childhood is a beautiful , lively and perfect time, but for me, my childhood was not easy like other people. I got a lot of insults or rudenesses and not only for childhood but also teenager. However, I chose to walk away and move on and it made me strong. This moment makes me think about one of Mariah Carey’s song “Can’t Take That Away” This song is beautiful and meaningful to me.
This song was sung and composed by Mariah Carey. Her life at that time was difficult and emotional. She had the problem with label’s management and felt overwhelmed by others. Moreover, her divorced from the label executive and the press made this became the hot issue. Mariah felt depressed and sad so much, but she never gave up. So,she wrote the song to help her get through these problems and hope her fans would get the feeling too.
My life when I was a child like this song. There were many people often looked down on me and throw dirty and rude words to me. They said I couldn’t pass the exam to study in high school or university, you would be a bad guy or you would never get a better life etc. I got the problem like this in the university too. When I took a position of the President of Student Relation of The Faculty of Education, there was someone talk to me like “You cannot do it!”. “I think you’re inappropriate for this job” I felt worry and sad when I heard for the first time, but now, I don’t care about them. Luckily, I have good and kind parents. They always teach me to fight with the problems and obstructions that come to my life, also, I have good friends too. They always help me and encourage me anytime I need them.
When I feel uneasy, I often listening this song and the beginning of this song is very meaningful.
“They can say,
Anything they want to say,
Try to bring me down,
But I will not allow anyone to succeed hanging clouds over me”
So chin up! Move on! And do you best!
