OK IM GOING TO WRITE SOMETHING HERE ON A PUBLIC FORUM BECAUSE I THINK IT WILL HELP ME HOLD MYSELF ACCOUNTABLE FOR THIS TYPE OF BEHAVIOR A LITTLE BETTER: it has been nothing short of a privilege being able to work in my dream job every night for the past 4 months and I can’t wait to keep goin. But sometimes I get in my head. I get in my head about my work, as we all do, but I get in my head about how my work is being perceived. Anxiously worrying about what people are saying about me, asking am I good enough? am I “liked” by the audiences every night? Social media adds to this distress because in one second you can find any person’s opinion of your work. It’s all out there just waiting to wreck you. But it’s time that I break that cycle. I challenge actors and artists alike to silence the overwhelming noise of critique from strangers. I challenge you to take your SELF WORTH out of other people’s hands, and make your work YOURS again. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to perform on the stages that I do. And I will now continue to do it without fear of judgement because being judged isn’t part of the gig. I’m simply here to tell the story. And hopefully people take something away from the experience. Love to all artists who need help reclaiming their work as their own.
