Everyday The Answer “NO”
Relationships mean a lot to me. Theatre was a great degree for me because it’s all about communicating; about relationships. I’ve auditioned for a lot of roles; some I wanted desperately so “no” was hard to hear when someone else was offered the role. It’s also hard to hear “no” from different stations I ask to air my radio feature. Yet, I can accept the “no” answer, even though it may be difficult, BUT what makes it super difficult is when there isn’t a connection made with the person giving the answer. I want to have a positive interaction with the individual regardless of the answer.
That’s what healthy relationships are about; understanding and connecting. Rarely can a response make something better but what makes something better is that connection. But no matter what ends up happening; more words to explain or convince the person will not make a difference. What makes a difference is praying for the other…everyday.
