Q. All right. I know that many people want this dream, but I really wanna be a singer/actress. The thing is, where I live, there really aren't many opportunities and well my parents don't support my dream. They think it's stupid. So I just wanted to ask if you guys had the same problems or if you have any advice you can give me.
The Oracle replies:
Many people seem to frown on certain dreams if they involve entertainment but if it was a profession such as medicine, it would be a different response.
This is YOUR dream, not your parents' but I am hoping this is your dream because you recognize your potential and talent to achieve it.
I'm all for people going for their goals and proving themselves right but it is a tough industry and will involve a lot of hard work and sacrifice. You may experience rejection and struggle to get where you want but if you're determined and have the right skills, keep going and don't give up.
The band had the support of their parents so I can't really relate any wisdom from their point of view. Chris also had the support of Phil's Mum who spotted his talent and had belief from the very start.
