Default I missed my shot

I missed my shot at fame when i was young and can't release the moment i failed from my mind. It haunts me every night. I think why didn't i just remove the ring? I wanted to, yes it was tight and prince was holding my hand but why didn't i remove it. Why was suddenly so afraid? I really did fail myself. Choose status quo over the possibilities. And i regret it to this day.

Very few people become famous. Most of us donít. It doesnít mean we canít be successful in whatever is that we do.

Dwelling too much on the past can be pretty depressing. I hope this is temporary.

As for me? I'm famous right now! My dog thinks I'm quite the celebrity! It's all relative...

A lot of famous people are actually unhappy. Fame is often very fleeting.

It haunts me every night. I don't know how to stop thinking about that time period.

I can kind of relate.

My sister was in forensics in high school and she was getting national 1st place awards and I think she could have gone into acting if she wanted to. But she chose to become a teacher and have a family.

But I often wonder what would have happened if she decided to be an actress. How my life would be different or if it even would.

I prefer to be realistic.

I am an artist, I exhibit in galleries, exhibits and competitions. I sometimes sell. I knew Iíd never make a good living out of it. Not realistic. Neither would I want to. I have a career that I love more than anything and I am glad that I have art as my passion too. There is more to life than fame

You know how many people paint or sing or play instruments or do whatever else cool? Millions. How many have talents? Millions. How many make a good living doing it? A very few. How many are famous? A very few.

Iíd never considered that I failed in any shape or form. Not at all. Only famous people donít fail? How so? I am doing great without being famous because I do what I love. Who cares about famous

Realistically what is the chance of you being famous like Prince? Realistically? Letís be real

And if music is your passion, you donít need to be famous to enjoy it. Why donít you pursue it? Go sing in a choir, community center, your church, take a class, go sing outside on your porch or in your living room!

Live your life pursuing your passion without worries about fame. Live your life in reality. Prince had his life and you have yours. We only have one life. Do your best and enjoy what you have. Heck I am tone deaf. Hahahah

I've had people tell me i will be famous. I sing, write songs, been in groups and taken classes. I give off a vibe. But i blew my opportunities that was my biggest one.

Fame is not everything and peoples lives don't just get better just because they get famous. In fact, the opposite can happen. Opinion | Britney Spears and I Learned the Same Lesson About Fame - The New York Times

I'm sorry you're struggling maybe try finding things you're grateful for in your life.
