Question:this is less of a question and more of a positive statement. In your recent video you didn't think you made a mark on the world, that's okay to think. But don't for a second think you haven't made a mark on millions of peoples lives. You've saved my life through depression and anxiety. You'r songs were that positive uplift that got me out of bed. If i had killed myself, that would be around 80 people effected traumatically (family etc) and you've saved so many peoples lives. Thank about that :) - kiltsarecool
I do appreciate that. Really. I guess I wasn’t looking at it from a ‘making a difference to individual people’ thing. I think it’s more my personal need to be accepted by the industries I wish to be a part of. I’ve spent years making music, but have been (basically) ignored by the music industry. The reason I want to get a publisher for my book, to get my song played on the radio, to write stories for TV instead of just making them for YouTube, to get a number one and its accompanying trophy, is all because I want that external stamp of approval, a pat-on-the-back from the industry I work in to acknowledge me and say ‘we want more of you, you do good stuff’. That’s basically my dream. But you’re right: I know my videos aren’t meaningless, nor is my music, and I’m very grateful that it’s helped people like yourself <3
Now change your avatar. What, did you think “the image of an angel becomes itself an angel” was just NOT IMPORTANT? THAT IS SO IRRESPONSIBLE.
