Alright, who’s cutting onions? No, but seriously, we were not prepared for Selena Gomez to take us on an emotional journey with her beautiful song ‘My Mind & Me.’ One thing we love about Selena is how open and transparent she is when it comes to talking about her emotions. It’s not always easy to be vulnerable, it takes a lot of courage, and we appreciate Selena releasing this song that we’re sure we’re all loving right now.
To further show how beautiful ‘My Mind & Me’ is, let’s take a look at some of the lyrics.
“Wanna hear a part to my story, I tried to hide in the glory and sweep it under the table so you would never know…”
Constantly being in the spotlight can be difficult and exhausting, which brings its own set of challenges when you’re a public figure. In this lyric, Selena conveys that and how she tried to hide what she was going through behind the glitz and glamor.
“My Mind & Me, We don’t get along sometimes and it, Gets hard to breathe…”
The mind is very powerful, and sometimes we can be our biggest critic. At times you can also get lost in your thoughts and overthink. If you’re able to relate to this, we hope things get better for you because we know this isn’t always easy to deal with.
“It’s hard to talk and feel heard, When you always feel like a burden…”
Everyone has their own struggles, but you shouldn’t feel like a burden when you need to vent. We’re all human, and venting is a way to get what you’re feeling out of your system. We hope that whoever is reading this has a close circle of friends and family to talk to when needed <3
These were just a few of the lyrics we loved, but we also want to acknowledge how lovely Selena’s voice is. Selena Gomez’s tranquil voice and the raw emotion with which she sings are unmatched. Not to mention, the gorgeous sound of the piano was a perfect selection for a song like this. If calm, emotional songs are your favorites to listen to, ‘Camouflage’ and ‘Lose You To Love Me’ have a similar vibe to the icon’s latest release. Listen with caution, though, you may need a box of tissues while listening to these songs.
For those who want to follow Selena’s journey and her life, her documentary was just released on Apple TV+, so go watch it right now.
To Selena, thank you for showing us the highs and lows, the good and the bad, and for being genuine.
Now, as we write this with teary eyes, let us know what your favorite part of ‘My Mind & Me’ was @thehoneypop! If you’d like to read more about the iconic, talented star that is Selena Gomez, click here.
