Waisted opportunities
I've let many great opportunities slip through my fingers while I was studying - I had the opportunity to make a CD, perform in a television show - etc. etc. etc. etc. People literally fell over there feet to get me into the entertainment industry. At that stage I felt that I was not ready for it or rather - not committed. I thought that these opportunities will knock on my door again - but it didn't. Now I'm happily married with one child - and I can't help but to feel that I've waisted that specific part of my life! How do I get past these feelings? I want to move on but can't help to think what would have happened if I felt different back then.

You were probably right that you were not ready for it then --- so many people in the busines don't really know what they'[re doing, and their offers of CDs, TV shows etc, are either bogus, or would be a bad idea. Issue a CD before your work is of a high enough quality and experience, for instance, and you may spoil your reputation and make it harder to succeed a bit later when you are more ready to succeed. Work, on your own or with a counsellor, to enjoy what you have now ( which you would probably have lost had you followed up the earlier offers ) and think of ways to become again involved in entertainment, as a part-time activity, if that is what you want.
