A quick (not so quick) lesson on "Who you are, if you love who you are, is gonna take you where you want to be":
I was always told, and I hated that about myself, that I have a bad temper; that I can be extremely happy & positive to be around but that I can go to the opposite side of anger and bad temper.
Around this time last year, my bad temper (or what I would define "my brutal honesty that this industry doesn't really appreciate") got me fired from a job. I hated the director, I found him a sexist, classist dickhead and I didn't hide it. I spent a couple of hours crying and thinking what I did wrong. Then, very loving, compassionate and confident about myself I thought: "There must be a reason why this happened! I've never been fired and people,usually, like me". Then, I remembered what my beloved grandma used to tell me: "It will take a brutal door slumming on your nose to make you learn the important lesson and make you see that a golden gate is opening up in front of you". A month passed and I got a call to work on what was my dream film for ages; you all know that I'm talking about "Vita and Virginia". Being on that film, with ALL my positive and happy myself and ALL my BAD TEMPER, opened up for me another golden gate, called "Extra Ordinary". And this other film, with both my positive and negative sides, took me to what I'm wrapping tomorrow: a real diamond of a movie, called "Vivarium". All this is not meant to say: "have a bad temper to have a good career!"
All this is to say, whatever is your 'scarlet letter', your biggest flaw, what makes you insecure and vulnerable, love it. Embrace it. Accept it. Love who you are in your full integrity. Cause the way you love yourself is gonna set the bar of what you receive from the world. Not only in your career but, most importantly, in your personal life.
So, if you want my happy and 'trallallà' vibe, you need to accept also my fucking bad temper. There is no "trallallà" without a "fuck you".
