taking tiny steps for myself. trying to take myself seriously as an actor.
i had a therapist who HATED whenever i used the word "try." she said there was no such thing as try. there was only do or do not. which was great in a Yoda kind of way but became really annoying in practical application. it became almost impossible to have a conversation without her wincing at some point. i eventually gave up going to her, since i guess i tend to live somewhere more in the shadows and less in the black or white.
i tried to explain this to her but she didn't even try to listen. i tried just disappearing and that worked. she never even tried to contact me. man, i don't know why i try.
