Music For The Soul : Titanium

There is a song for almost every emotion we feel . 
I personally have my set playlist for depending on how I'm feeling . 
There some songs that really hit the core for me and helps me when sad .
 and songs that help me when I'm happy. 
And songs I truly need when my depression kicks in and I need to closer to the lord . 
Each week I will spotlight a song and tell its importance in my life. 

This song has come one in the most random moments before but it has helped me feel empowered . 
I remember shopping at JC Penneys three years ago , I was so excited  because my mother had have my brother and I money to buy new clothes . 
As I started  shopping and looking through the clothes I couldn't find anything . All the clothes in my size looked like drapes with crazy patterns . 
I was feeling so defeated . 
Rack after rack I kept getting discouraged .Everything I came across was not fashionable or not in my size.  I was so frustrated I started to cry . As plus size woman it's really hard to find really nice clothing when you're on a budget . 
Mid-cry "Titanium " came on . Listening to words I started feeling better .
"You shout it out,
But I can't hear a word you say
I'm talking loud, not saying much
I'm criticized but all your bullets ricochet
You shoot me down, but I get up"
Just the beginning of the song got to me.
It reminded me to block out the neigh sayers .
 For years I've been so hard on myself about my weight and also getting horrible comments from family members about it too . I was told if I don"t lose the weight I wasn't pretty enough and will never find some in my life (romantically ). I let other harsh world hinder me for so long . Those words was like bullets in my heart every time I heard them .

Titanium has been my motivation song since that moment .
It hits home for me .
Do you have song that you can relate to or seems to come on at just the right moment .
