Have you ever come across a music video that makes you cry? I have.

Sometimes I go back to watch them just to help myself cry. Sounds slightly morbid, I know. Hear me out: I think having a good cry is essential when you are feeling burnt out or frustrated. It helps me feel better anyway.

Here is one of my favourites. Rudimental’s “Free” featuring Emeli Sande (one of my favourite vocalists) chronicles a little boy who is bullied and seems to struggle through adolescence until he finds a passion in flight. The cinematography is excellent. I love the actor’s facial expressions. You feel like you are right there with the characters. I watch this video when I am feeling down because it is a story of overcoming your challenges, finding your passion, and ultimately being happy doing what you love!
