A reminder for all my band followers:
A lack confidence does not make you less valuable or wonderful as a person. Missed and cracked entrances do not define who you are. They do not negate all the effort you have put into what you love. You are worthy of people’s time. Your mistakes don’t define your character- they let you to learn and to grow.
Even when you squeak and frack and stumble over notes you are an important musician and an important person.
