One time I was stress is right now. I'm super stressed about the upcoming play tonight.
It's not my performance that I"m worried about. I mean sure I'm worried that I'll mess up on a line or something but I'm more worried about one of my fellow performers.
Someone who plays an important role is sick today, the day of the performance.
Hey guys, I'm sick...
One of my good friends was going to take her role. My friend was endlessly complaining about it but my friends and I saw it as bragging because my friend had known that we wanted that role yet -- she proceeded to complain about it.
I was definitely jealous but I tried to hide it, some of my other friends not so much. I helped her memorize lines and secretly hoped that the actor got better.
It got close to the end of the day And our director had pulled my friend aside to reherse. That meant she had the role, no questions about it.
That was the best decision, now I've learned to never let jealousy get in the way of friendship.
Then I decided that I would have to cope with it and disregard my jealousy, after all, I was still getting 3 extra lines myself
