So often, young people look up to celebrities to be their role models. Unfortunately, many famous people do not seem to care about this and believe they can do whatever they wish, not thinking about how it will affect their fans. This is not the case for Hunter Hayes; he is a great icon for people to look up to. After recently seeing him perform live, I realized he is someone kids should be looking up.
During his show, he talked about how everyone is different and that it is okay to be different. If everyone were the same, life would be boring. Unfortunately, not everyone will see it this way and so often, especially with kids, people will be ridiculed for being their own person, but stay true to who you are.
Don’t Give Up
Don’t give up on your dreams because it’s not something that someone else wants for you. In the end, it is your life, and only you can tell someone else what dreams are yours. Never give up just because someone is telling you that you cannot do it.
Everything Gets Better With Time
Before singing his current single Invisible, Hayes talked about how things will get better with time. No matter what you’re going through right now, how difficult the situation is, and how much other people don’t understand, things will get better. Even if you can’t see it now, just hang on a little bit longer, and everything will start falling into place.
In an era where bullying has become a major subject, these are great things that all kids should be hearing. It’s not about what other people think about you, but it’s about who you are, and one day, you will find someone who can accept you for who you are and appreciate you.
