It feels so great to have passions, hobbies, interests that drives you into something creative such as guitar. I really admire your dedication. Always find this really inspiring on a personal level. Thank you for sharing about this.
I’m sorry you don’t have anyone to really connect with for the moment. I can relate to this feeling of loneliness. In fact, it reminded me when I was a student. I had to move in a new city and I didn’t know anyone there. And because of social anxiety I was unable to speak to someone or make new friends. During 3 years, I spent sooo many days without having a single interaction with someone and I know this can become very heavy. And to be honest, sometimes I went to different stores just for the 30 seconds of interaction with the sellers (better to laugh about it now ).
With time, I realized that building new relationships is mostly a matter of time and opportunities. And we can always try to think of news ways to promote these opportunities.
The fact that you’ve got this passion can be, in any case, a good starting point to meet new people. That’s just my opinion, but maybe it might be worth starting to think from this.
I don’t know if that’s something that might be interesting for you or if you’d feel comfortable with this, but what about going to some music concerts? I mean small ones, in intimate places such as in coffee shops, restaurants… These are places that are conducive to informal discussions with people we don’t know but with whom we share the same interests. Of course, it’s not the same as long-term friendships, but maybe it can be a way to meet new people or to create opportunities.
Also, you certainly already have a certain level of practice, but sometimes courses can be an occasion to make new friends (guitar lessons, for example).
Know that, in any case, you are not alone.
And… I’ve got to ask. How was your day?
