how would you like it?

Imagine something happening to you and try to be a little bit more empathetic. Usually followed by "if (something were true)" or "to (happen or be the case)." Of course he's upset—how would you like it if you'd worked for over a year on something, only to have someone else decide on a whim that you had to scrap the whole thing? It doesn't surprise me that young stars who rocketed to fame and fortune often suffer anxiety and mental health issues. How would you like it to have cameras and legions of fans smothering you every time you step outside your house before you'd even left high school?
