Today's words are not my own, but rather they are words that inspire me:
*I think an actor's job is being open to all feelings, even the painful ones that scare us the most. I trained myself to keep my eyes open when I cry and to keep my head up instead of hiding in shame - it's no easy task. And facing others' pain with openness and presence is even harder.
But facing others' pain is facing our own pain.
It's embracing all facets of humanity within us.
It's being human, and whether we like it or not - that is what we are.
