Being Your Own Best Friend
To dance well you need to keep your confidence up. So when you get those catty remarks we all get, you have to give yourself a pep talk. You have to tell yourself how beautiful you are, how many hours you've devoted to your art, all the time you've put into costuming, how you know so many more steps than you used to know, and so on. Hopefully you have a friend or two that can be there for you as well. But sometimes friends can be too brutally honest, so choose wisely. Sometimes you just have to look in the mirror and tell yourself what beautiful eyes you have or how kissable your lips are or how great your neck looks. I know it's hard, but you have to believe in yourself or you'll never get anywhere. So give yourself a hug. You deserve it.
