Kpop XG’s new song, Woke Up, is my new athemn to feel confident in this competitive world.

Honing on your talents

‘Woke up lookin’ like this’

The world is full of talented and smart people, and sometimes we may feel like a small fish in a big pond.

For XG, it seemed like they were competing against other famous groups and may have felt “small”, especially when debuting. However, the girls managed to work well with one another to achieve world-wide success.

Jurin shared with Vogue Japan that embracing each team member’s strength and weakness was crucial in combating the stress and comparison faced in this competitive world.

“Maya and Cocona tend to gather specific references, whereas I tend to delve into things from a sensory point of view. Harvey is good at creating the moves and Chusa is good at checking and processing the details. Each and every one of us has our strengths. Whether it’s something that is absolute or sensory, we bring it to the table and exchange ideas so that everything can come together on stage.”

Jurin’s description of her members remind us that while we may think we don’t have any strengths, each one of us plays an important role in our community and that there are capabilities within all of us but we may just need to believe in ourselves more.

Laughter is the best medicine

“I’m the judge and jury, I don’t wanna hear it, I’m the one they fearin /  ‘Y’all my entertainment, fascinated”

In addressing their haters, the girls try to not let negativity get to them. There’s nothing funny about getting hate, but the girls’ shifted their focus to their growth and journey instead of the hate and rumours. A little dose of humour is oh so good to help our minds shift to happier thoughts.

Perhaps XG’s perspective on focusing on things that make us happy, and surrounding ourselves with people we enjoy can actually help us feel better during tough and stressful times!
