“I Gotta Be Me”- Sammy Davis Jr.

If you have the time (and if I put the link up properly) please listen to this fantastic song by Sammy Davis Jr!! https://youtube.com/clip/Ugkx3dwPiV1WhnvkybN9bZpSi4OtMz8vi7bs

The lyrics:

Whether I’m right or whether I’m wrong
Whether I find a place in this world or
never belong

I gotta be me, I’ve gotta be me
What else can I be but what I am

I want to live..not merely survive
And I won’t give up this dream of life
that keeps me alive

I gotta be me, I gotta be me
The dream that I see makes me what I am

That far away prize, a world of success
Is waiting for me If I heed the call
I won’t settle down, won’t settle for less
As long as there’s a chance I can have it all

I’ll go it alone
That’s how it must be
I can’t be right for someone else
If I’m not right for me

I gotta be free, I gotta be free
Daring to try, to do it or die
I’ve gotta be me

I am a true addict living my life one day at a time in recovery. I have been substance free -meaning NO drugs or alcohol since 5/23/10. My intention is to share my experiences daily in the hopes to free others from the fears of being who they truly are. My wish is to bravely tell my truth so others can tell theirs as well. I want to be free of self hatred and doubt. I want to live a life of joy, kindness, love and grace. Thank you!
