Introducing: VAO – Somebody Else

The song Somebody Else by VAO speaks about the crushing realization that someone you care about deeply wishes you were someone else. It’s a soul-wrenching experience experience no one ever wants to go through. You begin to question everything about yourself under these circumstances, wondering where things went wrong. Despite the heartbreaking nature of the song, it can be comforting to know that others understand your pain.

When someone tells us that we don’t meet their expectations, it feels like they’re saying that we’re unimportant. It’s as if our value as a person comes from outside ourselves and is determined by other people. The best way to move on from these hurtful words is to get rid of the person who said them and then focus on building yourself up. Surround yourself with positive people who will make you feel good about yourself, and practice self-compassion. Be your own biggest supporter, because you’re the only one who can make yourself happy.
