What are we suppose to say to these people?
A lot of the people I meet tell me about how they use to play music, when they quit, and the unfortunate set of circumstances that caused them to quit. What do you say to someone when you get this…
"I use to play but…
(my teacher quit on me…)
(I had to sell my instrument…)
(After school band was over, I couldn’t afford my own instrument…)
(I got distraced…)
…but I wish I could do what you can. Now I regret not sticking with it." -sober face-
What do you say to that? Is it just me or is this a very awkward and uncomfortable conversation to have with a stranger?
