Chillin’ with Adam with Emma McIntosh & Special Guest: George Michael
According to George Michael, Adam had the one thing George was continually seeking.
“Adam’s an incredible young man because he never changed who he was for anyone. He stayed true to who he was. Adam knew who he was. He stuck with, “Hey, this is me, either you like it or you don’t.” I wish I had the strength that he did. Yeah, he’s pretty amazing.”
Reflecting on his own life, George said, “There was never a moment to take a breath and relax. It was up or down. There’s no in between. When you did have your ups, you got the love and support of your fans. In the moment, when you’re singing your songs, those were my ups. That was the time when you feel connected to the Universe. When I was down, that was hell for me.
What I’ve learned from this experience is that happiness lies in little moments divided over the course of your lifetime. We’re never going to find the happiness where you’re walking on clouds all day long for the entire duration of your lifetime. But we need to acknowledge the moments of happiness and we need to hang on to those to get us through the moments of sadness.
That’s what I learned from this journey. Your life is never going to be just the way that you want it to be. Whenever you feel like you’ve accomplished something that you’ve dreamed about, something else is going to hit; or something else is going to not go the way you planned it.
I think it’s important to always stay true to yourself. I think it’s important to always support yourself and to not be afraid to tell people and to stand up for yourself and say, “Hey, this is what I need to heal myself. This is what I need in order to find peace again. This is what I need in order to find love again.”
I think those are the most important things that I wanted to share with people. Stand up for what you need so you can progress in life with love, with compassion for yourself and with balance and with peace. Don’t expect the people around you to fix you. The only person who can fix you is yourself, and that sometimes can be hard, but it is always possible.
That’s my message for everyone. Love yourself. You need to create your own boundaries. You need to know your own limitations and do not allow anyone else to tell you what you should and what you shouldn’t do. It’s as simple as that.
If you follow those rules, you will always be okay because you will follow your own path regardless of how other people judge you or see you or whatever their opinion might be. Follow your heart. Set your own boundaries. Get to know yourself. Understand what makes you tick. Understand what makes you upset. Understand what hurts you, but also understand what makes you thrive and what makes you happy. What makes you feel like, “Yeah!” You get that “Yeah feeling!”
Get to know yourself and once you discover your true nature, the people around you will accept that. They won’t fuss about it anymore. Believe it or not, how people respond to you is really a reflection of the energy you’re sending out about yourself. I felt attacked, but really, I was so insecure within myself, that I was actually attracting that. It’s also good to understand that how you feel about yourself will ultimately affect how other people see you.”
