Power Post #6

Standard

You can’t clean out the closet ’til you open the door!!

This week in Power Stories, we are working with the messages we have internalized, from our families of origin and from educational and religious institutions.

I’m listening carefully and anxiously awaiting my further instructions for creating new message content, rewinding the tape and pressing record, letting all those stale statements disappear under the strength of affirmations shaped by my own experiences and beliefs!

In the meantime, I give you the lyrics to the most apropos  song from my Power Playlist.

Perfect – Alanis Morissette

Sometimes is never quite enough
If you’re flawless, then you’ll win my love
Don’t forget to win first place
Don’t forget to keep that smile on your face

Be a good boy
Try a little harder
You’ve got to measure up
And make me prouder

How long before you screw it up
How many times do I have to tell you to hurry up
With everything I do for you
The least you can do is keep quiet

Be a good girl
You’ve gotta try a little harder
That simply wasn’t good enough
To make us proud

I’ll live through you
I’ll make you what I never was
If you’re the best, then maybe so am I
Compared to him compared to her
I’m doing this for your own damn good
You’ll make up for what I blew
What’s the problem…why are you crying

Be a good boy
Push a little farther now
That wasn’t fast enough
To make us happy
We’ll love you just the way you are
If you’re perfect
