Have you ever found yourself belonging to a club you didn’t sign up for?
Maybe a circumstance only happened to you but somehow along the way you keep finding people who share a similar experience.
If you are anything like me, you spent many of your younger years trying to secure the desire for belonging by trying on many different groups and opportunities. But isn’t it just like life that often it isn’t really what we choose but what seems to choose us?
In learning that I wasn’t the only woman in my late boyfriend's life, I suddenly found myself a lifetime member of a strange club. A sisterhood of women who, though we had never met, were forever bound together by the colliding stories of his infidelities.
There were many other scenarios I would have chosen at that moment but in front of me were the cards I had been dealt. And though it took time, I have come to see that owning the reality of my circumstance was what gave me the clarity I needed to heal.
So, join me on today’s episode as I share more about the significance of writing Track 6, Strange Club, and how telling my truth has brought me even more freedom than I could have imagined.
Tune in to hear:
- How the electric guitar line reflects the theme of the song
- The camaraderie I have found in this strange little club
- How healing can come through humor
- Why the best way to tell my story was through music
Though we may not have a choice in what life throws our way, we will always have a choice in what we choose to do with what happens to us. Because at one point or another, there is a good chance we’ll all be members of some type of strange club.
Quotes from the episode:
“It’s all a choice in what we choose to do with what happens to us.”
“Grasping reality allows you to sometimes find this weird level of healing through humor and there’s a different level of strength that comes from that. When you can laugh about it, you own it.”
“Whatever you have gone through doesn’t have to define you.”
