At the risk of sounding somber or negative, I will admit that there are only a handful of people I trust. And the other night in acting class I realized that I wasn’t on that list.
It was a breakthrough of sorts. Daily I put in the work and imaginative creation as required of an actor, and when called to have the conversation in the story I force emotions and feelings that I think that I should be displaying. It’s as if I don’t trust myself and my creation to be present in the story, instead I push my actor agenda onto it.
The other night I allowed myself to be receptive to the experience, I finally trusted the work I created. The result was me letting go of being an actor and being a truthful storyteller in that moment. It was breakthrough in me learning to have “Trust in Me.”
