depressed musician

If you have a straight job, a way to make a living that isn’t based on the thing you love, it’s better it not be compromised. If you love food and then open a grocery store it gets in the way of your love that you now have to sell food that is going bad etc. you have to do business, pressure to pay the rent, probably start lying and encouraging people purchasing things you don’t believe in in order to pay your bills on time. Probably would keep your love of food in a different light if you didn’t enter the business of selling thing you love.
There was a musician who took his life a few years ago who played in a band that he didn’t believe in but the band did well and he was making more money than he did from anything else so he stayed but he wasn’t into the music and he didn’t like the people he played with. Everybody knew that and said he was depressed. Maybe it’s just that depression is a thing you can’t do anything about or maybe he would have been better if the thing he loved wasn’t what he was twisting into a form he didn’t like contorting it into. He’s missed by everyone who knew him in his earlier incarnation.
