I was talking about the time I hurt myself and had to stop going to the gym and how I recovered and started lifting again. I said: "The only thing that helped me to make the comeback was his words."
- I know we usually say 'make a comeback' but since I was talking about a specific incident is it possible to say 'make the comeback' here?
- Someone told me that only athletes, actors, politicians and the like make comebacks. Can I as a guy who's not a professional lifter use the word comeback in this context?
