Saddest moments of your life
« on: December 18, 2015, 09:57:32 PM »
What were the saddest moments of your life?
Personally, I've only been around little more  than a decade, so I wouldn't know as much suffering as the more mature of you. Suffering and sadness is a big part of life, and I hope to understand it better.

So, what was the saddest moment of your life?

I have been around for almost 5 decades and honestly, I cannot really recall anything... I am sure I have been sad sometimes, but nothing so profound that it hasn't faded away...

I have had some sad moments in my 50 years, but none so dreadful as when i found out my banjo was a fake.

Some things you can't unthink/unknow once you're aware of them.

You mean that it wasn't a banjo after all or that it was not the particular banjo that you'd been led to believe that it was before you acquired it?

Seeing a child get run over and decapitated was pretty sad, but also shocking and horrible etc. Death is the saddest experience and people dying in pain. You certainly won't get details of people's saddest moment that is too personal a question to ask on a public forum, inappropriate even.

Dang.... On the individual/personal side, I'm thinking it's that the happiest moments are probably already past.  Maybe something nice, but... There's always going to be a, "but..." attached.

In august of this year, a close friend of mine of two years committed suicide. That's probably the worst I've ever had it; that said, I always remind myself that, while these things are valid to be sad about, it can always be worse than it already is.

This is the wisdom of my people. Things can always get worse and they most probably will. So no use feeling sad now because there's worse to come  ;D

It was advertised as a Bacon & Day Montana No.3 Ne Plus Ultra, but is was found to be an embellished standard Silverbell No.1. A whole world of difference to a collector.

Depressing either way...

The saddest moments of your life...

... are yet to come?

... have already passed?

Being a reticent type myself, I am inclined to agree. The really deep things, sad, happy or otherwise, I might share once in a lifetime with a close friend, possibly after a stiff brandy. I find the constant, seemingly compulsory exposure of all manner of personal experience on the internet deeply distasteful. Then again, I suppose this marks me as an old fart.

Having a well thought out philosophy doesn't mark you as an "old fart", Ted. However, I've come to realize that keeping things to yourself doesn't really hold any more significant value to telling people on an online piano forum. There's something to be said against drawing attention to oneself, however, I find that online communities can often be a good outlet for those who need it (including myself a time or two).

Ditto on this.  I'm still surprised people get annoyed or upset when I saw I don't want to post something online or don't want to have an online presence, or at least one using my real name.
