Build a wall. Let the brickbats hit you and fall. Listen to criticism. Extract only what will make you better. Straighten your back even when in pain. Laugh even when the heart cries.
Hide the tears from prying eyes. Tell yourself, that you are on stage. Every. Single. Minute. Perform when the world is watching. Perform even when it isn’t.
Lead the actor’s life. Every minute. Tears, fears, nakedness and love are for the Greenroom only.
