    Okay so today I embarrassed myself during the School Play rehearsals in front of 5 teachers, cast members, Stage managers, Tech team and stupid Year 7s who were allowed to watch our Dress Rehearsal. I walked onto stage and started delivering my monologue in an angry tone and quite loudly (because that's just my character's personality) before realising that I was meant to come onto stage around 5 scenes later. Everyone laughed. I've never felt so embarrassed. I started crying later and all my friends said that I was dumb for crying about this. I understand that it was my fault for not confidently knowing my cue and this is just a rehearsal. But how can they expect me not to be embarrassed by this? Also, I suffer from anxiety which makes the whole situation better (note sarcasm). It's been 5 hours since this incident took place and the actual performance is on Wednesday. I really want to stop feeling like **** because it might affect my actual performance. So how do you overcome embarrassment?

    honestly the best you can do is forget about it. every time the thought comes in your head just shake it off and force yourself to think about something else, preferably positive! As for performance anxiety, I would strongly recommend a glass of wine or a small beer before you go on stage, as it calms you down mentally and physically!
