This is so random for me to post lol
So I don’t usually listen to Drake (or Nicki) but I was using Songza on my phone while working out and this song came on. I wasn’t really paying attention to the lyrics until the chorus came on.
I actually started to tear up on the treadmill, which I know sounds ridiculous. The chorus is actually just drake saying “I’m so proud of you” over and over again, but something about it hit me hard and I got so emotional.
I’ve spent the last 2 years working on myself and changing the way I’ve lived my life (for the better, of course). I’ve had my share of problems and issues the last 6 years or so, but I’m finally at a place I’ve never thought I would be.
Its my own small personal victory but I’ve never given myself the credit or really realized where I am in my life. So hearing Drake tell me hes proud of me (via song), made me realize that I am strong and I’m deserving of a fair and good life just like everyone else.
Theres a line at the end of the chorus: “Everything’s adding up, you’ve been through hell and back. That’s why you’re bad as fuck”
I’m not ashamed of my past and where I came from because it molded who I am today. And you know what? I’m proud as fuck :)
