Hello, my name is Mary Dallas & I'm an aspiring actor. My question is, how do you deal with the negative Nellies? Some of my family members are saying things like, "You're wasting your time." & "Nobody ever makes it." At first I tried not to let it bother me but, now, it's starting to get under my skin. I've done 3 short films & a major rap music video so far, & they think it's "No big deal" I've also been on about 20 auditions, I have an agent AND I'm taking acting lessons. Should I just stop sharing my progress (or lack there of) with them? Have any of you ever faced this dilemma?
