I often write about the importance of embracing individuality as an actor and in all areas of life. (I essentially dedicated my entire 2 1/2 years of writing for Acting.About.com to this topic!) I believe that it is so incredibly important in order to be you in order to live a fulfilling life.
Remember, friends, there is only one of you out there. There's no one else who is like you! Your quirkiness, your awkwardness, anything for that matter - it's all a part of what makes you so amazing!
It's also important to recognize that not everyone is always going to like you. Don't worry about that. Simply try your best every single day to be the best possible version of yourself that you can be and you'll be doing a great job.
As my amazing friend and acting coach Carolyne Barry used to say, "You Are Enough."
