Be Yourself
Frank Ocean Lyrics


Many college students have gone to college
And gotten hooked on drugs, marijuana, and alcohol
Listen, stop trying to be somebody else
Don't try to be someone else
Be yourself and know that that's good enough
Don't try to be someone else
Don't try to be like someone else
Don't try to act like someone else, be yourself
Be secure with yourself
Rely and trust upon your own decisions
On your own beliefs
You understand the things that I've taught you
Not to drink alcohol, not to use drugs
Don't use that cocaine or marijuana because that stuff is highly addictive
When people become weed-heads they become sluggish, lazy, stupid and unconcerned
Sluggish, lazy, stupid and unconcerned
That's all marijuana does to you, okay? This is mom
Unless you're taking it under doctor's umm control
Then it's regulated. Do not smoke marijuana, do not consume alcohol
Do not get in the car with someone who is inebriated
This is mom, call me, bye

​@Lev what are the negatives that "objectively" outweigh benefits such as
- stress relief
- pain relief
- relaxation
- anti-inflammatory properties
- reduction of nausea
- lowering blood pressure
- combatting hard drug addiction and alcoholism
- treatment for numerous conditions
(glaucoma, arthritis, migraine, tourettes, schizophrenia, panic disorders, anxiety disorders, sleep disorders, depression, eating disorders, seizures, PTSD, epilepsy, appetite loss, cancer (slows tumor growth and kills some cancer cells)
?????

just to name a few.

not to mention the non medicinal benefits
(many artists use weed to boost creativity, some use it socially, for some it just raises their overall happiness and sense of well being, etc).

you sound extremely cynical and negative.
maybe you should try some weed :) lighten up a bit.

I think this voicemail perfectly sums up any strong-willed and truly loving mother’s relationship with her child.

First it’s the words of affirmation, reassurance and care. The words that come from her mouth that fill you up with this amazing sense of fulfilment and joy. There’s almost nothing like it. She makes you feel like you are worth it, makes you feel like all the pain has disappeared, makes you feel like YOU are everything that you have ever needed and will ever need.

Then slowly comes the lecturing. Where there once were heartwarming sentences and fulfilling sentiments, there are now critical comments. Every interaction between the two of you becomes what seems to be a constant evaluation of every decision you make. Being forbidden to partake in certain activities and pastimes before you’ve even given them a chance. The feeling that anything you do that doesn’t align with her beliefs will be judged.

Yeah, growing up with this mother can be tough. Because she’s tough. But the reality is that once upon a time she was just like you and although her judgements can be harsh and sometimes misguided, her love for you never falters.
She’ll do anything to ensure that you are safe, even if that means being the overbearing mother that her child complains about to their friends when they ask him/her why they couldn’t go to that party.

Whether you want to believe it or not, she truly loves you more than anything in this world and all she wants is the best for you because she knows that you deserve it. And deep down you know it too.

yall please do not take what this woman said personally. Think of it as a parent/adult wanting better for their child. I think it's sweet how she is taking the time out of her day to leave a voicemail to show her love for her child. BE YOURSELF! that's all she is trying to get across.

zeranzeran

and this isn't even Frank's mom! That's his friend's mom leaving this voicemail.
That's a special woman right there. What a good soul. Frank knew it. That's why we hear it here.

But like what is being yourself really tho? She's saying that he needs to be himself but then lists all the things he shouldn't do. So her version of being himself is the person she wants him to be. Not really who he is as a person but what she tried to raise him as. Love that this came before Solo too such a perfect little interlude.

yeezysZn720

Lmao because when you’re doped up or drank as hell you’re not BEING YOURSELF

Not that deep tbh…💀💀💀
