Years ago,I wanted to grow up and become an actress.I loved acting and I was good at it too. But I was bullied so much about my looks that it literally led me to the point where I`m terrified to be around people,let alone set a foot on a stage. It eventually got violent enough for my parents to homeschool me. I want to go back to school and go back to acting before I graduate next year,but I`m still terrified it`ll all happen to me again. I don`t want to suffer like that again. Should I go back?
Sorry for the delay in replying to this. I got a bit busy in life.
If there’s any theaters around you, look into if they offer any acting classes. If you go into something like that, you’re going to have people that share a passion with you and that shouldn’t tease you as much as average students would.
Now, I’m assuming it’s high school you’re in now. You can also look into colleges for the following year with a good acting program. The university I attended was very, very tight knit. Everyone in the department was friendly to each other and helped each other through everything. When you surround yourself with like-minded people, it becomes much easier.
Now, If you really want to go back to regular school before you graduate, then here’s what you need to do. Take a long time thinking about what you really want. If this is truly what you want to do, then surround yourself with stuff to help you make it through everything. Make it your duty to make friends right away to help you through it, and finally make sure you set up a support system, whether it be online friends, parents, counselor, whatever. Keep your head strong and keep your dream close.
I can’t tell you whether you should or shouldn’t, that’s something you have to decide. I do say, look at all your options and go for your dream. There are alternatives past going to public school to get back into acting.
I would love to see you acting. I’m sure you’re amazing. I hope I can some day see your amazing acting myself.
