Wow. Such interesting stories. 😮 🙂 Even if some of the situations were negative, I’m glad it pushed you towards a positive decision to take up something you loved/wanted to do.
Mine was just getting a cheap violin for a cosplay I was doing and I realized that I could actually play it. So that meant there were no excuses. I started looking up videos and that’s how I ended up here. 🙂 (But I have always wanted to play the violin much before that ’cause I’ve always been into music)
