From a very young age, I've known exactly what I wanted to do in the future. From the age of 7 I found passion in music, more specifically singing. From the moment I realised that becoming a singer was a career choice, I knew that it was what I wanted to do. Now I'm 17. I'm in my 1st year of sixth form and I'm studying music. I've got connections to someone who can help me write music and I'm so close to reaching the end goal that I've had from the age of 7. But upon seeing all these people my age, who are so talented in not only singing but other instruments, and that they're still improving their skills whilst I'm struggling to improve, it's made me lose all my passion and determination to becoming a singer. I don't know what to do. I still love music and singing, but I don't see it as a career choice anymore and it makes me feel terrible inside knowing that all my hard work was put into the subject of music for a career I don't want to pursue any more. It feels like a waste of 10 years from my life and I have nowhere else to go. What career am I gonna go for now? Do I still want to go in the direction of the creative industries? Should I continue to force myself down this path? I'm lost and I don't know how to tell my parents or my friends any of this either. I just don't know what to do anymore.
