An Open Letter To Parents Who Think Following Your Passion is Worthless!

Dear Dad,

I believe money will follow if I do what I Love and You worry about money? it absolutely makes sense that I’d make  the most money when I do something I’m interested and invested in.

And when I am bringing my heart and soul to work, the work will definitely show up a good report, and the reason I remained unfulfilled in my career, because maybe I’m on a path that doesn’t connect with my passion. And I think it’s high time I need to steer right off that road and take a different route.


Money is a very powerful thing. As it builds empires, it also breaks down empires and it allows for dreams to come true and it takes others away, it makes some people’s lives happy and other’s completely miserable.

Today money is considered happiness.But this becomes problematic sometimes when people  like me stray down onto a path that doesn’t suit me  out of societal and family pressure.Sometimes Money  just makes me happy temporarily. And what’s the point of enjoying myself with the money in the later years when I am spending my whole life being miserable Dad? I felt I was mindlessly wasting my time away over these years.


Getting early every morning and stressing your head and body for the office from 9 to 5 just punching away the hours gets miserable to be followed everyday and for a work I don’t even care about. Yes, I might  have been got habituated to this schedule but then that would have been a different person inside me and not the actual me.

However all this will never be an issue when I’m onto my guitar and lyrics for which I’m passionate about.Even when I put in extra hours it doesn’t matter and isn’t a burden  because I don’t feel like I am forced to do it, instead becomes more enjoyable. And I am always willing to put in extra efforts to go beyond limitations and excel. I truly enjoy what I do. I can relate myself to this and come up with better  and more creative ideas on lyrics.

Being forced to do work is one of the most draining experiences I had, Dad.

When I’m  working hard at something, I’m becoming  good at it day by day and I enjoy it more and become more passionate about it and believe that I will excel at it someday and be the best.

Now for me the real challenge is to communicate the gift of my passion, my mission and my unique value which I’m craving to do.
