your post about piano: you have not lost your love and passion for playing. Just because you had some time apart doesn't mean you can never go back - you just proved you did. You will ALWAYS have music as an escape, you will always have your talent for it and the close bond you have with music. It never really goes away. Maybe when you feel confident enough you could post a vid of you playing? Take care of yourself xx
Thank you so much, this was honestly the loveliest message <3 This has really opened my eyes, and maybe you’re right. It might take a while, but I’ll try get back into it. I know it sounds kind of dumb, but this post has actually pushed me to getting back to it. Again, thank you so much for messaging me, I really appreciate it. Take care of yourself too, Jesus loves you x
None of you know that I used to play piano. Pretty much to summarise, piano was my one and only talent. I hated people knowing, but it was truly the only thing I’ve ever been a prodigy in, and probably ever will be. Back when things were a lot worse, piano used to be the only thing that kept me going. It was the most sincere, raw thing that I could ever let my emotions out on besides self harming, and it made me feel like my life had value whenever I played. A few months ago, I decided to quit piano because I didn’t know where I was going with it, and I thought that I was wasting my time. Oh how wrong I was. Today for the first time, I played one of my old songs, and I started to break down, because it was the only passion and talent that I had ever had, and I just threw it away. If I could turn back time, I wouldn’t have quit, and I guess that why I’m posting this is to tell you that talent and passion are so very rare, and if you have both, never throw what you love away. I don’t think that I’ll ever have the same relationship with playing piano ever again, and it’s really upsetting to think about. Don’t stop what you love because you’re unsure of where it’s going, or that you think that it’s pointless. Passion will take you places.
