A monkey on my back

On Wednesday I finally get rid of a monkey that has been on my back for a year. A year ago I had to pull out of a play I was in. I was heartbroken I had worked so hard. But the depression and other things conspired against me.

The stress of dealing with the abuse issues hurt me more than I can ever say. Everyone at the drama group were so wonderful. They supported me and understood. The hardest thing was I thought I’d let then all down. They told me otherwise.

So for a year I’ve been waiting for this chance to prove myself.

On Wednesday evening when I step on stage I’ll be shedding that monkey that has been clinging on. Every step I now take is towards thriving.

When you have true friends, friends who like you for who you are and not whether you’re a great actor.

Goodbye monkey.
