Default I Didn't Know My Own Strength

This is a song that I recently came across and listening to it just makes me feel a little better inside. It is not new as far as when it was created, but because I spend so much time wrapped in my depression I rarely make it out long enough to experience things as they are currently happening. Anyways, it is a powerful song (for me at least). All of the lyrics are not quite true for me yet--specifically the ones pertaining to making it through the pain and out of the dark, but I hope that some day they will be. I truly hope that one day I will find the strength to move past my depression and anxiety or at least come to a place where I can manage it so that it is not so disruptive to my life.

Also, if anyone has heard of the artist that sings this song then they know the struggles that she has had in her own life. She went through her own share of defeats and addictions, but somehow she managed to find something within her to push on and fight for a better life. Although she is no longer alive today, I truly believe that she did find strength even if it did not last forever. Struggling with depression, we know first hand how it feels to give your all only to end up falling again. The message in this song and from this artist stands to give hope that through all of the turmoil and tears we may still be able to pick ourselves back up. I hope that you all can get something out of this song that you'll be able to hold on to, even if it is only for a while. Below are two links:

1) A simple lyric video for the song:

2) A live recording that shows the song is truly the artist's testimony. It is very touching:

That's a wonderful song. I often listen to Whitney, usually, everyday actually. She was having trouble with it toward the end of her life as we all know.

Love all her music.

I wonder about the upcoming movie :(

Sort of wish they would let her rest in peace. I'll watch it though.
