    For the longest time I've wanted to be a singer but I'm a quitter. I honestly feel horrible because I can't even bring myself to try and I'm so pathetic that seeing things like Kpop performances makes me want to cry. I just feel so down and it's honestly unbearable. Anyone else feel this way? Is it just extreme envy?

    Singing is a passion and, like all creative pursuits, involves much soul searching, questioning, giving up, and starting again. Rarely is it plain sailing and it takes many years to find your sound... and yourself. It is this desire which will propel you forward to exceed your expectations - if you can endure.

    Charlie Parker (jazz saxophonist) said:

    "If you don't live it, it won't come out of your horn"

    and I guess that can apply to musicians and non-musicians alike:
    To express yourself, you have to live your life - not imitate or pine for the lifestyles of others.

    BTW, KPOP is an industry where singers are secondary to purpose and often bound to inextricable contracts. Have a closer look beneath the facade (really study their faces) and determine if they are truly happy.

    Hi,

    First of all, it is beautiful that you want to become a singer! It is an amazing goal that I am sure you can achieve if you try your hardest. Get out of your comfort zone and just do it.

    Please do not be envious of those in the KPOP industry, I know for a fact that they are all miserable behind the cameras and the makeup. They are told what to do 24/7, they have no sense of freedom. They wished they lived a life like yours.

    Never compare yourself with others because you are amazing in your own way :)

    Hopefully, I will be listening to one of your albums one day!
