Just Carry on Singing
There is something that you do that you love doing. It’s a dream that means everything to you. You just feel right doing it. But what if the people around you think it is a bad idea?
I was on Facebook this morning and I noticed a YouTube video about a 13 year old boy named Andrew Johnston who sang on Britain’s Got Talent. I have included the video here and I wanted to point out something that is said in the video. It is when Simon Cowell asks young Andrew if his friends support his singing (paraphrased):
Simon: Do you friends support your singing?
Andrew: Well, I get bullied a lot at school.
Simon: Why do they bully you?
Andrew: My mates say they don’t like that kind of music.
Simon: And how do you deal with it?
Andrew: I just carry on singing.
Sometimes, it takes a child for us to see how our fears stop us. What is it that you enjoy doing? What do your friends think of it? Are you going to carry on or are you going to let them tell you what they think and leave your dreams behind?
It’s your choice, not theirs.
