Dear Dish-It: I Wanna Be A Star!

Dear Dish-it,

I’ve wanted to be on TV before I even knew what that meant. I’m a really good actor, but these days it seems like it’s a one-in-a-million chance. How do I get famous?

WannabeStar

Dear WS,

Just having the goal in your mind means you’re on your way to achieving your dreams! While becoming an actor or actress takes a lot of talent and hard work, simply believing in yourself can be the first step to achieving your goal. While there aren’t any guarantees (especially when it comes to reaching celeb status), there are some other things you can do to get on the road to possible stardom…

Passionate, or just plain starstruck?

Becoming FamousSerious or Starstruck

My first recommendation is to stop thinking of it as stardom (being famous just for the sake of being famous) and start thinking of it as your passion. Some kids are passionate about animals, and dream of becoming a vet. Others are passionate about fashion, and aspire to become clothing designers. If those kids didn’t feel passion for animals or fashion, there’d be no point in them wanting to get those careers. So, if acting is truly your passion, and you’re willing to work hard to make sure you get to act for a living, then by all means go for it! But if it’s just being a big star that’s motivating you, that might be the wrong reason to become an actor.

Get schooled

Becoming FamousGet Some Practice In

OK, so if you’ve decided that you REALLY wanna be an actor (and not just a celebrity), the next thing to do is to start a) getting some training by signing up for acting lessons or coaching, or even just joining the drama club at school and b) getting some practice by actually trying out for roles in local productions. You can audition for the school play, a stage show being put on by a theatre group in your community or even a talent competition. You may even want to try out for some commercials! Keep your eyes and ears open for opportunities to get more practice in and experience under your belt!

You on YouTube

Becoming FamousShow Off On YouTube

These days, it’s easier than ever to try and get people to notice your talent, thanks to websites like YouTube that let you upload videos of yourself doing what you love … lots of celebrities have become famous thanks to their YouTube posts. So think of a creative idea and start putting your talent out there! Our article about How to Get Famous on YouTube can help!

The perfect friend would always be there to support you when you have a problem, and will offer to help. The perfect friend is someone who guides you to doing the right things, not the wrong things. They would make the effort to talk to you, not wait for you to contact them first all the time, as friendship should be a 50-50 relationship. They would stay your friend for years, not leave you as soon as they find someone 'cooler'. They won't act different around others to impress them and leave you. They would listen to you just as much as they tell you things. They would turn to you as their first choice, not their reserve choice. But most importantly, the perfect friend would be someone who always makes you happy to be with.

You want someone who cares, understands and will be there for you, and not just when you're down. You want someone who makes you smile and laugh at 3 am and you have to try not to giggle in class because of something that happened a weeks ago. Everyone fights, but you don't want someone who you constantly fight with and who makes you feel down or drops your self-esteem. If someone bothers you to do bad stuff, walk the other direction and don't take in the negative force. I'm the type of person that takes people in for who they are, I care and listen and try my best to make them laugh and be happy. I have gotten mixed with bad friends as in talking me into negative things, constantly making me feel down, ditching for other people, insulting other friends. I need to change how I act, I seem to annoy and bother people a lot. And possibly I care too much, I also at times understand too little. I get attached to easily and hurt easily. I don't know what else you asked so imma end this now xD

Honestly? They aren't safe for you. Depression is difficult to overcome. Especially when people are negative about it around you. If they refuse to believe you, then there is no point trying to be friends with them again. Some people just don't accept mental problems or swear that they are being faked. I never quite understood why people don't acknowledge it, but whatever. Moving on from that, you should find friends that you don't need to pretend around - depression isn't too uncommon. Look and listen. You'll find the right people - they just proved that they weren't it. No one can go back and make a brand-new start, but anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending!  I really like the post above me, Huntress that was really good advice. I have a theory, there are two kinds of people in the world, Vampires and Sunshine. The vampires, take from us: they suck our self esteem, positive thoughts, smiles, energy.. YUCK. Sunshine on the other hand, gives and gives. You feel warmer just being around sunshine people, they lift you up, remind you about your good qualities, cheer for you and help you be your best most true self.  Here is the other thing about Vampires and Sunshine - Vampires tend to run in packs, they draw their power from taking other peoples away - and IMO they are insatiable. Sunshine people are awesome, even if you only have one in your life - it's enough.  I hope you will look around and see if you can spot the difference, I'd love to know if you have at least one Sunshine person in your life - let go of those horrible vampires, in the end you will feel much better for having made that empowered decision!!  Good Luck!
