Whether we admit it or not, often times we have some kind of check list of qualities or attributes that we expect our (current or future) significant other to possess.
Whether that means you wouldn’t ever want to date “a short guy” or a “girl who’s taller than me” …or “someone who’s too preppy”…”or too indie”…
Or maybe…you would only date someone if they had a degree or a well-paying job, or someone who lives in a certain part of town…
You get the idea. But here’s the thing… how would you feel if you realized someone was sizing you up like that? Pretty terrible. Noone wants to be seen as less than amazing, and noone is actually perfect…
Who are we to say who is or isn’t “good enough” for anyone at all? Shouldn’t we just be trying get to know each other for who we really are?..not just get a quick read of their resume or face and body type?
This song is about someone getting passed over and written off by that person with the check list, who hasn’t bothered to take a good look at themselves in the mirror.
What makes any of us good enough for anyone else?
There’s no such thing as “good enough”. We are just people…we don’t come with yelp ratings and degrees of worthiness to each other. But it is amazing how many people we’re willing to alienate by pre-judging. Everyone is different…and not everyone will always get along, but nobody…no matter who you are, is worth more than any other person…everyone deserves a chance.
I hope this song translates that message…and I hope it gets you happily swaying your head, while singing along…and sharing it with everyone you know.
