From the start of his career, Michael Jackson was the "King of Pop." And with talent like his, how could he not be?

Even after all this time, Michael Jackson still inspires millions with his words. Here are some of his lyrics that you can turn to when you need to feel that spark.

"I know that you can sail across the water, float across the sky, high. Any road that you take will get you there, if you only try." – Keep the Faith


It takes more than just believing you can do something. You have to be fearless, confident and take the first step. Only then can you realize your true potential and manifest it.

"Heal the world. Make it a better place for you and for me and the entire human race." – Heal the World


Be good and do good. Be a change-maker and work on tackling the world's most pressuring issues. You can do it, one step at a time.

"Just give yourself a chance. Find the circumstance. Rise and do it again." – Keep Your Head Up


Never lose hope. You have the courage to rise above any pain or failure. Getting knocked down is not the end of life, what we do after is what defines us. Keep your chin up and be relentless in your pursuit of happiness.

"If you want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and then make a change." – Man in the Mirror


Change starts with you. Show them how kind, compassionate and benevolent you truly are. When you're the best version of yourself, others will follow suit, and this world will ultimately be a better place.

"You are not alone, and I am here with you. Though we're far apart, you're always in my heart. For you are not alone" – You Are Not Alone


You are not alone in this world. No matter how big or unbearable your problems may seem, you can always confide in someone close to you to reduce the burden.

"Smile, though your heart is aching. Smile, even though it's breaking. When there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by." – Smile


Don't let circumstances put you down. Don't let your emotions get the best of you. Be strong. You are tougher than you think, and you will get through.

"Believe in yourself, no matter what it's gon' take. You can be a winner." – Keep the Faith


Don't let anyone or anything keep you from believing in yourself. You have greatness within you, so don't be afraid to show it.

"Whenever you need me, I'll be there to protect you with unselfish love that respects you.” – I'll Be There


Love is an all-encompassing, powerful emotion. You can count on love to feel supported and beautiful again.

"Keep on with the force, don't stop. Don't stop till you get enough" –Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough


Be bold, passionate and always go the extra mile. Never underestimate your capacity for greatness. Your power and brilliance are all what make you a force of nature.

"Don't let nobody turn you 'round. You got to know when it's good to go, to get your dreams up off the ground." – Keep the Faith


Take a deep breath. Don't let anyone else rush you with their timelines. Be independent and have faith in yourself. Nothing in this world comes easy, but don't stress out too much. You can accomplish your goals at your own pace. You can do it.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
