The Secret Teller would like to thank =ftourini for the use of the image.

The Secret Teller would also like to say: "An abusive childhood, bullying and the fact that I'm manic depressive have left me strained. I don't like to bother people, I wonder if I'm just being a fool for imagining something new, that I should just be grateful I'm still alive at all."

Try your best! Even if your family won't be all that supportive in the beginning, maybe if they see you really care for it they'll be okay =)! and if not, try not to subject yourself to JUST their expectations...i know how painful that can be. I am happy that at the beginning you had said your not afraid like you used to be though. Don't let their expectations put a fear in you. Do your best =)!

There are plenty of amateur drama societies in need of new actors. If you're sure you'll do great, why not proof it by doing instead of telling others?

Honestly, it's easier to fill a mold of expectations than to ever break it.

The problem with that is, it's not usually you creating the mold. </3

My walls just broke one night. I let it go, and the voices arent mean, scary or anything. They help. Just keep an open mind and listen, dont act on the things you know are wrong. Just know, the walls might have broken for a reason.

The walls... they let people like us to feel a bit less hurt. We build them BECAUSE we are that much afraid of pain.
And by building them we keep people in distance from us anyway.

I know how it hurts when you're surrounded by thick walls that no one even tries to get through and this desire to shout out what you really want and who you really are. I know this pain when you know that everyone will laugh at you, or detest you, or tell you it's impossible because of reasons.

I can tell you one thing. This is your life. Not theirs. If they can't open their minds enough to let this through, then you don't have to mind them at all. If you do, you'll let this opportunity slip and you'll regret it for the rest of your life. That's not fair. We do not separate ourselves from pain just to be controlled by other people. We are not weak. We are not stupid. We're just afraid.
Go on. This is your life. Do with it whatever it suits you.

Oh God. I know this impression ! I know what it is to try to... Be someone again.
Don't be afraid. The first step is always the most difficult. I know it is. And yes, the next steps will be hard too. But that is how life is, and everybody derserves to know what it is to be happy, to be himself. So I hope you'll have the best sooner :D

I had this problem too. you just have to start over and find yourself some friends that like you for who you are, and will support you with whatever you want to accomplish. You're never alone

I think I know how you feel, at least a bit. I see a bit of myself in your artist comment. Now, thankfully I haven't been abused, and I don't know whether I'm manic depressive or not (I might be, my mom is), but not wanting to bother people, thinking oneself foolish for having dreams and wanting to "be someone" for once... I know that.

I second what confidenceAlive said, I couldn't have phrased it better. It's great that you've overcome your fear and pain. I don't know who you are, but this makes me really happy for you. Now go for it, stand up, show them what you can do. The best thing in pulling against expectations is exceeding them, and I'm sure you will. (:

It's okay to be cautious. Trust in the people around you has to be built. But don't be afraid to do things differently than they expect; it might be difficult for them to see a different you than what they always saw, but they will accept who you are -- and don't be afraid to be who you are, because who you are, is beautiful <3
