There’s only so much rejection one person can take.
People have questioned my recent move to Australia, questioned my decision to start my own business. Part of the reason why I’m starting fresh is because I was emotionally exhausted.
I was working in the performing arts industry for a while, and anyone who has been there knows it is one of the most cut throat industries there is.
Countless auditions that you tell yourself were ‘Good experiences’. Travelling miles, buying a new outfit, missing sleep learning new songs - all for that ‘Call Back’. Constantly building myself up thinking - This is the one - I’ll get this part - they called me back three times they must like me.
Just to be left hanging, wondering why, with ZERO explanation.
So that’s why now I have decided to be my own boss. Yes it will be hard - it already bloody is!! But at least it’s on my terms.
I will still always love performing, and may return to it, but I won’t miss the heartbreak. Big Love to all the working actors kicking butt and sticking with it Just thought I’d share a bit of my story with you all xxx
