When the ex-mentee texts to show off an solicit feedback.

Today I got an audio text from an ex-mentee showing off her drum skills, the fact that she was being allowed to play the drums at a service at another church and not at my church. She stated then that she wanted to see what I thought. What I heard in the video and what she texted made several things clear:

  1. She has moved on.
  2. She is sporting a childlike attitude that needs to change in the next few years.
  3. She might value my opinion, she might not. 
  4. She is a young person without experience playing the drums, making an embarrassment of herself in the process.
  5.  I am still hurt because the mentorship dynamic “failed”, and there was nothing to be done to make it better.
