I sat there, every nerve in my body trembling as I was about to walk proudly onto the stage, in front of an audience. As I was about to walk to the stage I took one deep breath and as the lights dimmed, I had a hesitant start but I made my shot. The technicolour lights were beaming at my  face as I made my que to start singing the most cheesy song just  to capture the people’s attention. I wanted to be remembered, so people could say; ‘wow she was amazing what’s her name?’ and ‘she was definitely my favourite’ and last but not least, ‘she’s gonna be a big star’. Of course there might be some negative reactions but like the actors we are, we can either take from it or completely ignore what they have to say because if we take it the wrong way, their words will wear us down, tire us into feeling like we’re not good enough. So we try and try harder and harder but still, not good enough. We beg for the acceptance of complete strangers just to have a good ‘image’ for people to see of us. And it’s the same with social media, we will try harder and harder to earn the acceptance we’ll never get. And if you do, it won’t last as long as you think because one mistake and your thrown back into the deep end. Scared, angry and you feel lonely. 

This isn’t just about my show, it’s about much more than meets the eye. 

I sat there, every nerve in my body trembling as I was about to walk fearfully onto the stage, in front of judges. As I was about to walk to the stage, I took a breath and as the lights dimmed, I had a hesitant start to finish because i was too afraid to be judged, I didn’t like it. However, little did I know that every time I check social media, I am now the judge.
