Good people still exist
Believe it or not people want to help. Don’t go into any situation expecting or demanding help, but you’ll be surprised by people’s generosity if you’re open to it.
Talk about what you’re working on
When someone asks what you do, tell them what you want to do. However, only say it if you’re actually working on something otherwise it’s just talk. If you want to act or you sing then there’s no need to say you bag groceries. A window of opportunity is small enough, and you never have a chance to break onto any scene when you’re hiding your passion.
People want to know you
When you’re already engaged in a conversation with someone and they ask about you, it’s because they want to know the real you. The fact that you’re currently bagging groceries has nothing to do with you. It reveals nothing about what excites you, so it certainly won’t engage anyone else. When you say you write songs they learn more about what makes you tick and you’ll give them the chance to open up and reciprocate, helping to potentially form a more genuine connection.
