Question is, what movie do you want to be in? Drama, comedy, horror, romance?
And do you want to play it on repeat or be innovative and change seeking?
The leading act, even if unpleasant, is still the leading act and the audience has to like them to stick around - or, at least, during production you have to believe they'll stick around.
How do you do that?
Tell the story that makes YOU want to stick around.
Problem is that you might start to buy into this make-believe as a truth and that your character is the only solo act.
Everyone else is the lead too, in their own movie, and you matter far less to them, than their own story, so remember that next time you feel deeply embarrassed. No one noticed you - only how they looked during your solo.
In life there's no singular truth, only the story you want to believe for yourself about yourself.
Until next time, take care, stay safe - and sane - and make kind choices!
