Thank you Alex (and Lee!) - such a wonderful reminder of how difficult the journey can be and how we all go through this!

Oh my gosh Alex. I think anybody in this business experiences those things or similar things at some point. You're brave to share - but know that you are not alone!!! e

Alex - Thank you! True courage is the ability to allow yourself to get up there and speak the truth, and this is not only courageous for yourself, but SO liberating for the rest of us! Who among us *hasn't* been embarrassed/felt like a failure/been ready to give up as an artist? I've certainly been there, and recently, too.

And every time someone like you is brave enough and compassionate enough to stand up and say, "YES. This happens. I've felt this way," well, we all win. Because it allows US to feel that way, too, and to know that it's okay and we're not alone. So important. So, thank you. And Lee, thank you for always finding and posting things that matter.
