There is a song that does a mighty fine job of touching my heart and bringing tears to my eyes. It's called "Clay" by Grace VanderWaal. Whether you have heard it a million times or you've never even heard her name, it is a song that the world needs right now. Especially kids; the youth of this world are bombarded on all sides with terrible things, but this song explains how that doesn't define us. We weren't created to break. We were created to find ourselves and help others to do the same. 

 

I know what it feels like to hurt. I know what it feels like to lose loved ones, I know what it feels like to be betrayed, I know what it feels like to have my heart not just broken but utterly shattered, I know what it feels like to be different and rejected. And I also know that we each have our struggles, both great and small, but size doesn't matter. We're all fighting our own battles. It's all we can to help others do the same. Life is hard, I know, but we can survive. We are here to become fighters. We aren't here to give up. We're here to try. 

 

Words can hurt. People can be harsh, brutal, unspeakable. But we're all still human in the end. So what if there's "cliques" and "popular kids"? How are they any different from you? Are they thinner? Faster? Stronger? Prettier/more handsome? Smarter? Wrong. They are themselves. Just like you are yourself. How are we so different? We were all created by the same Master. We all make mistakes. We all have our different talents, interests, and passions. You may see a "perfect" person and fail to notice the broken, hurting spirit underneath. In the end, exactly how different are they from us?  The answer is simple. Though it is incredibly hard to accept (I struggle with it too), we are all the same. No matter what. 

 

So I challenge you to do one thing: fight. I don't mean literally, I mean mentally. You can overcome this. Don't tell me you can't because I know you can. I know what depression and anxiety feels like. I went through a trying stage of it only a few years ago. I know you can fight this, because I have defeated it myself. I've seen many others do so, as well. It hurts now, but I promise you it will get better and you will come out of the darkness shining.

 

To me, this amazing song I share with you is not just about verbal mockery. It's also about what's trying to shape us in our mind: depression, anxiety, whatever it is. It's all just a nightmare, trying to make you believe it's just who you are. It's not. It doesn't have to affect you, unless you let it. You are stronger than it. Just hold on, fight back, have hope. And please, if you are struggling even the slightest bit, ask for help. You don't have to suffer alone. People want to help you, but they can't if you don't first ask. 

 

I love you all so much. You are an inspiration to me and all I do. I see many of you faced with unfair trials, some unspeakably awful others small but powerful, but you keep on. You aren't afraid. Stay strong and remember: you are not clay. The only things that shape you are what you allow to. If you agree with this message, or are willing to fight, put "#I'mNotClay" in your signature and share the song with your friends and family. Thank you so much. :)

Your silly words
I won't live inside your world
'Cause your punches and your names
All your jokes and stupid games
They don't work
No, they don't hurt
Watch them just go right through me
Because they mean nothing to me

 

I'm not clay
