Fear of starting
Sooo. . .I really want to be good at guitar or bass. Whenever I go to a concert, I have a hard time focusing on the music because I WISH that was ME. I want to know what that feels like.
But I'm terrified to start. So many people my age have been doing this since they were 12. It doesn't help that I have actual obligations (school, job, my son).
I'm not even sure if this is enough to get me to start. But I feel discouraged. My friend even gave me his old bass and bought be an amp, but I'm terrified to even pick it up. Anyone on here that knows me knows that several people in my life put me down as well and that has led to lots of negative self talk.
