Til it happens to you

Oct 26, 2016 4:17 PM

The song by lady gaga called til it happens to you, is supposed to be about sexual assault, but if you listen to the word it can also be interpeted as a song for chronic pain, listen to it with new ears, what do you think? I can relate to both meanings personally. How do you relate?

Wow that does sound like it could be about chronic pain


There is also this song by colin hay that sounds like is could be about chronic pain

Yes, it does sound a bit like it could pertain to chronic pain. Sadly, I can relate to both scenarios.

That song can apply to mostly anything to do with pain, any kind of pain across-the-board.

I can also sadly relate to both scenarios, and to this day if I see a certain type of truck I freak out and think that he's back to get me! I have PTSD from it I'm always looking over my shoulders. I was the one who got blamed. Even the police acted like I asked for it when I filed a report! I ended up dropping the case per my therapist request because I was on the verge of a mental breakdown!

Wow! This is the first time I think I have shared this with the group, not the whole story but you get it!

I have been raped 3 times and (believe it or not) one of the times I was raped by a cult...I won't say which one. That could get me killed. The more I listen to the song I feel like it can be for any difficult situation not just pain or sexual assault, it can be about losing a loved one, or a really bad car accident that left you scared, physically or emotionally. Or seeing someone die or or or...if you think about you don't know anyone story fully but your own. The lyrics You don't know how I feel till it happens to you, can be about anything if you think about it.
