You did something amazing and people love the idea of what you have done and you are being highly appreciated. You think people would love to read about it, people will love to watch it, people will love to talk to you about it, get to know you better and then you prepare things that could get you there.
And people are excited about what you are doing, it seems like there has been nothing like this before, everyone is in love with the thought of it, but then something happens at the very last moment.
Everything you have done, everything you built so far, all goes waste, only because of something you thought would never happen.
You had a sense that something could go terribly wrong, and you had confirmed that what went wrong, would actually never happen but it still went wrong. And you are not at fault, the people are not at fault because they still love you! The problem was with the guy who said he would sort out everything for you and still under his watch, everything went wrong in his side.
He took the money from you, he charged you well in advance, and right now he hardly cares what really happens with you and your audience. He just went home and is now relaxing or rather trying to get someone else like you for his next bait.
At times, you might fall into the same or a similar situation, and I know for a fact how frustrating it could be for you. But instead of getting upset, and instead of getting frustrated, you know better than me that it is not the time to give up or mourn over it. It is time to come up with something new. Something that could change what happened and break all your old records and give your audience what they want.
