For the love of a daughter

18th September 2011 14 comments

Nearly getting through my quizzes and reports…but still not really much of a break after woods, since I’ve still go to study for exams. But I’m not here to complain about uni (*gasp* Really now?)

My family has never been functional. I’m sure most families aren’t but mine’s always been more so…or that’s what I think. I’ve mentioned probably ages ago that I’m not longer living with my parents, but with my uncle and aunty.

The reason why I’m mentioning this is because I listened to Demi Lovato’s For The Love Of A Daughter and I burst into tears. I had to run to the toilet, much to the surprise and shock to my friends (I was at uni). I’m not a crier. I don’t like crying but that song touched me so deeply. It sums my feelings and circumstances perfectly.

I had always liked Demi Lovato as a singer since she has such a good voice. But after hearing her newest album, I’m beginning to respect her a whole heck more. She’s got light, fun songs mingled with deeper songs and her transition to something more ‘mature’ seems flawless (*cough* unlike Miley Cyrus *cough*).

And yeah, I’m a lot better now. It’s just kinda of hit me, you know? It’s been a while but the I suppose the feelings are still festering somewhere in me.

In between Demi Lovato’s album, I’m pumping up Jason Derulo’s album πŸ˜€

    Happy that you’re a lot better now πŸ™‚ I don’t know the story among your family, but it’s gonna be better and better everyday. I hope you’ll all be together again someday. By the way, nice song up there. I’m not really that into Demi Lovato, but she has a great voice!

    I’m sorry to say it, but when you said you burst into tears in uni, I really want to hug you, you are so cute! >___< *hugs tightly*

    But this time, a hug for you. Not because you are cute, ok? It's a normal hug. XD *hug attack*

    Hope everything will be fine for you. Fighting!
    Yes! Thanks! <3

    First off…I’d like to e-hug you, and say that I can totally relate to crying from this song. I think that family are the ones that hurt you the deepest. They’re meant to be there to love & respect you and support you no matter what… but they’re human, too. It’s ridiculous how easy it is to forget that words hurt & actions hurt… and your love for your family, especially offspring, should be endless. I haven’t experienced the domestic violence that seems to be lacing the words to the song, but I think I have been mentally abused and emotionally neglected for too many years. I feel like my parents just refuse to want to get to know me. That shouldn’t be the case.

    I hope thinks with your family will mend eventually, but I’m happy for you that you’re living with your uncle & aunt. Sometimes relocating is for the very best.

    What’s with all the news of Demi Lovato all of a sudden? I know nothing about American entertainment cept the names, haha.

    I don’t remember reading you’re living with your uncle and aunty … I remember a hint of it but I can’t think of why … what’s the matter?

    I haven’t worked with an international student yet but I expect it wouldn’t be too great … never thought about that before.

    I can see it’s really hard for you to cope up. It’s like you’ve got the whole world in your hands. I’ve never experienced living with other relatives for a long time, but I can feel how hard it is. Hugs for you Misaki πŸ™‚ Smile always ok? Things will get better soon.

    Awwwwww…I hope you’re better now from the crying thing. And I hope everytime and everywhere you here that song you’ll not burst into tears, taht’s so embarassing. Good thing I finished Mitch Albom’s book at home, if not I will just cry and look stupid outside.
    Anyways, I’m glad someone agrees with me between Miley and Demi. Demi’s more good and mature than that Cyrus girl.

    I just hope you’re okay now… πŸ™‚

    Let’s do our best on the exams! <3

    Okay that’s something I don’t understand. Why would anyone date someone old enough to be her dad unless for the money? Maybe there’s some kind of love going on but I just can’t imagine it.

    I’ve heard Skyscraper, I really don’t like the lyrics. I know they’re probably inspirational but for me lyrics that tell a real life story annoy me … cus I can probably always apply them to my patheticness. That’s why I listen to Asian music I can’t understand a word of the cheesiness. I can’t understand why she’s a role model though, its like, do the young girls want to cut and have bulimia?

    Same thing with For the Love of a Daughter with the lyrics … in this case it sums up your situation =/ if it was me I’d never listen to that song. I’m sorry about what’s going on though I understand I prolly shouldn’t nose in about it. Just stay strong …

    Demi Lovato is simply amazing. I find her really admirable; she was bullied and all and yet she has the strength to just… stand upright. πŸ™‚ it’s amazing, really. It’s like emotions don’t really affect her, haha.
    My family is not right nowadays too… /shrug. idk, financial problem has never been this scary…. /sigh.
    anyways, I shouldn’t be ranting here, haha. I feel like an idiot 8D
    lols miley cyrus.. she’s just some kind of disney teen popstar who sings those kind of songs.. idk how to say it, but demi has better and more inspirational lyrics in her songs πŸ˜€
    and you mix demi’s album with JASON DERULO’S? LOLSSS~ (demi don’t wanna go home,eh 8DD)

    hi there! I’m from a broken family as well… and crying sometimes helps. i don’t know your story but things will get better in time. I’m glad you feel better now.

    i haven’t heard of the song and now i’m scared to listen to it…

    I usually get that from Americans. When I’m with Asians though they get my age right most of the time with maybe a 1 year difference. Americans just don’t know how to tell, I’m kinda sick of being ’16’ for the past few years.

    WTF that is messed up. 11 and girlfriend? I once read a book and the 11 year old girl got pregnant.

    Well then that’s good for them? I guess it’s kinda hard for me to accept they’re actually in love but if you say they’re sweet, I’ll take that hahaha.

    Oh god another reason I can’t listen to English. There’s so much F word in angry and sexual contexts! But this is one reason maybe I try not to learn Korean. Once I become fluent I’m probably screwed with the music.

    Don’t worry about long comments … it wasn’t long compared to some I get. XD

    You’re so brave to share this. I hope you feel better now!

    I have a love-hate relationship with songs that sum up my feelings and everything else I’m going through. It’s good to have something to relate to, yet sometimes it’s hard to face up to and think about your own thoughts and emotions.
