How is it that we identify ourselves with so many pop songs? That we take their lines and make it seem like that's exactly how we feel?

Is it because those feelings are feelings we all have, or is it becasue we just don't have the words to mold our OWN feelings so we rely on other's words to express what we meant. And what happens is that we recreate our feelings to fit around the songs, instead of creating songs to fit around our feelings.

i love you:)
i think its the same with photos. sometimes we create experiences so we can show people the pictures.

Maybe we so badly want to identify with these people we admire and idolize. maybe we want them to be more human in our eyes. cause if they're human, if they are like me, then maybe i can be like them.

I don't agree with that.
I thin k that we want to identify ourselves iwth them not becasue we want to be liek them, but because we are so desperate to be identified. But we don't have our own words. We don't know how.
But I guess that's what our blogs are all about, right? We're figuring out how to use our own words instead of other people's.

It's endless, though. Because of course we're both right. Because humans are os damn complicated that I can't keep it under control lol
