I just want to put this out there warning triggering topic! I will discuss issues with mental health.
I was just poundering about some songs that RM has created, produced, and or performed. Sometimes songs have links to each other. In 2017 RM released a song called "Always". This song is mature in a sense it does speak about the struggles of loving yourself, staying true to yourself, loosing yourself, and dealing with the world all at the same time. Namjoon does mention moments of wanting to die, wanting to choose himself, and the frustrations of realizing that we must understand the world but it doesn't give a damn about understanding us.
If you know anything about RM his journey of frame wasn't easy despite his talents. His family did not accept his dream and goal of pursuing music. He was told to forget music and often had to his his lyrics from his parents. Just imagine not having the support of your parents to pursue your passion. As most parents they wanted him to find his place in the world by going to school and getting a good regular job.
Below is a great in depth analysis of the song
I personally knows what that feels like since I was pressured to bring only A's home. When I told mom that I wanted to go to school for animation and interior design my mom did not support me and told me that was a waste in my intelligence. I was forced to go to a private liberal arts college and go into a path for a normal career. I definitely regret it. I'm just know rediscovering myself and finally following my passions.
Answer: Love Myself
Now let's fast forward to the present time. I feel like in this song RM is speaking truth to his past self. In this song he realizes that living for others is not worth it. He realizes that he doesn't need anyone's permission but his own to love himself. Below is the translation of his verse.
Maybe there’s no answer Maybe this isn’t the answer either It’s just that loving myself Doesn’t require anyone else’s permission I’m looking for myself again But I don’t wanna die anymore Me, who used to be sad Me, who used to be hurt It’ll make me more beautiful
At the end of the day all you have is yourself and you will eventually have to answer yourself. Are you doing what you love? Are you being true to yourself. Will the future you be happy with the choices the past and present you make? No one is perfect and our mistakes do not define who we are as a person. Just like RM we have to go through trails to make us stronger and to discover our truths. Take it from Namjoon...stay humble, follow your own path, stay true to yourself, learn from your experiences, and love yourself.
