With characteristic bluntness, singer/songwriter Jo Dee Messina says that this was a song she definitely related to at the time she recorded it. And it was the whole "You know what? I'm outta here, I deserve better than this" strength of this song that caught her interest. "Not in an arrogant sense, but everyone deserves to be treated well, and everyone deserves to be happy. And I love that this song was like, You know what? I'm never looking back. See ya! You've given me the runaround, I really deserve better than that. Everyone does. So I love the strength in this song, and the whole, 'I'm going to take care of me.'"
Complainers have no place in her life. Jo Dee is a believer in action and sees complaining and remaining stationary in the problem as a lousy way to spend your time. "You'll see that belief in a lot of the stuff that I sing about and I write about," she says. "It's very low energy, it takes its toll on you physically, it affects you when you're sitting in that humdrum place. Look at the person that gripes all the time. Look at their face. It's written all over their face. They don't smile, they've got these really deep creases, the frown lines, the this, the that. You can see it. They're constantly angry. I don't want that."
