You can only run for so long
Amelie was as the quote from the famous song "Dancing Queen" by ABBA says; "a singer before the could talk and a dancer before she could walk". But she never believed in herself as a pop singer. She didn't think she could sing that way, she was too shy to belt away and really voice her heart and souls expression. Turning 9, 10, 11 years old she gained a lot of weight and that also made her feel she didn't look "right" for it.(!)
She couldn't live without the music though, she tried pursuing other career paths, but she needed to sing. Singing was breathing, it was living and surviving. So she found a sneaky solution and pursued classical music. Which many people find ironic since singing opera is hugely demanding, "why would that be the easier choice?". But isn't it always a little easier to do something that doesn't really mean THAT much to you? Creating a protective space where music was still there but she could still hide away who she really was and not risk being rejected FOR REAL was a safe plan. Turns out you can only run from yourself for so long. Amelie started seeing self destructive patterns in her self, self sabotage and health issues. She ended up in a an existential void. And seemingly late in the game, she came to the insight that even though she had convinced herself that being an opera singer was her ultimate dream, there was a completely different artist inside her DYING to come out. And she made the choice at almost 40 years old to pursue a career as a pop singer and songwriter. Thank you for following her journey
