Wow. You've just helped me realize I don't want to be a professional musician. That's amazing. It also makes me sad, but I sense that my life will be better for knowing it.

That's very generous of you. And I'm sorry that you feel sadness. One way to think of that is that the sadness you're feeling is for a "previous version of you." That leaves space for the current version of you to be free to find whatever makes you happy.

Acceptance comes in waves. If you ever need/want to talk about drifting away from music, feel free to reach out. My twitter and dev.to inboxes are open. :) I know how long it takes to finally move on from a hobby that felt so much a part of my existence. :)
