what did i do?!?!? - September 10th 2013, 03:39 AM

my mom told me that the ballet school i want to go to "isn't going to work" because i won't be performing at all. i did all the work. i found the studio, i found the classes that were my level, and i found classes for my sisters. i even figured out how much tuition is.

i told her i quit ballet. i didn't mean it. i've been a dancer since i as three. if i'm not a dancer, i'm nothing. i don't care about performing. i mean, i love it, but as long as i can dance i don't care. i don't want to quit. i just got en pointe 2 years ago, and now she's ruining everything. i'm not even very good, and i don't have the right body type for ballet at all, but i can't loose the identity i've had for my whole life. i don't know why she cares about 1 recital a year.

what do i do? i told her i was done with ballet because i was angry, but i know i'll go crazy if i don't dance. it's everything and i've wrecked it

Hi Bayleigh, it sounds like you are very passionate about something - which is defiantly good. You know, some people are brought up on something, and then they eventually change, or are forced to change and feel like life is meaningless without the thing they were brought up on. However, some are able to find something else, new and awesome to get involved with. Others however, can't get over the thing they tried to, and thus were meant to be involved in that thing.

If you believe that this is truly the thing for you; I urge you to fight for it. Beg your mom that you want to go there. Or, promise her that once joining this school, you will work your head off to try to get better, to try to reach the top of your game; thus they may allow you to preform then, or if not, you will be able to preform at other places.

My point is, tell your mom how important this is too you, and that you don't want to pass up this opportunity. You don't know if you don't try - so keep trying to talk to her about it.

Keep your head up.

Best wishes,

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...
