I just had a regional band audition, and I'm very very happy and satisfied that I made it in.
However, I have a lot of friends who have not made it, and I don't know how to react to them.
I really don't want to appear too cheerfully and hurt their feeling.
I hate it when they frown and still tell me kindly, "Congratulations."
Has anyone felt the same before?
If so, would you give me an advice of what to say to them, how to react, and how to seem un-self-centered?
Thanks in advance!
