I’m glad that it happens.
I’m grateful that it forces constant re-evaluation to approach and makes learning not just growth, but a necessity.
My work over the last year could be deemed as a failure; a play that went horribly wrong, a minuscule part in a TV series and countless auditions that didn’t go anywhere. But, it has been by far my most successful year as an actor because of the sheer development I’ve been forced to undergo to work alongside people that I consider to be brilliant.
Failure only feels like failure when your own journey is compared to that of someone else. Other than that, it’s just another word for evolution.
One thing I’ve taken from all this “failure” work with people who force you to be better. If it hurts your ego, it’s bloody working!
