During times like these, I would probably call my friend. I know that family should come first, but I just feel a lot more comfortable with my friend. The bond that my friend and I have, it is far more greater than a family's bond. I know that it will take a while before I can open up to my family, and that is why I love this so much. I hope to do more from now on, man.

I hope that we can continue to improve this craft and this community that we have built. There is nothing that I want more than to see this community grow to the best possible version of itself, that is my dream.

A great post, and a really interesting area. I've always had a love of reading sports autobiographies and through this started to get really interested in performance psychology from a sports point of view. There are unsurprisingly many, many crossovers with music performance, and yet there doesn't seem to be much written from the musical side.
