You gotta learn to live with what you can’t rise above

I lost my job last year, and I’m struggling ever since to find a new one, but it’s really hard. I have to depend on my wife’s income, and I know it’s stupid and she loves to support me, but I feel humiliated. I used to rely on music since I was a kid to find a way out on hard times, I often travelled 2 or 3 hours to play in a gig for no money, just for the love of playing. But now that I don’t have the money I cannot do these gigs anymore, and sometimes I think I’m sinking down. It’s really hard. Bruce says that the promise is often a lie. But even if you know it, you really feel cheated from life, sometimes.
