Should Troisnyx dance?

Posted by Troisnyx - May 6th, 2016

I have a tambourine that doubles as a frame drum, bells and semi-tribal clothes. I yearn to put them to good use.

What's stopping me is that I'm really self-conscious about anything I do; I fear that I'm a horrible dancer, or otherwise not appealing in some way, shape or form. But I cannot help but think that this is something that is good for me to share. I have a deep passion for drums and dancing, and I want to use it healthily. Performing publicly is something I've always yearned to do, even if I'd been shamed for it in the past. Even if I am dancing alone, I don't want to be afraid of people seeing me......

Should I dance?

Shit, why not? I hide behind the tears of a clown, know what I mean?

I don't want to wear two faces -- if I dance, I want to do so without fear. <3

Regretting something you didn't do, rather than something you did, hurts more in the long run imo. Perhaps I'm being a tad melodramatic and am in no position to be giving anyone advice, but if you let fear control your actions, then the only person you'll have to blame for it is yourself. Accept who you are and embrace it. Confront the world like you own it and you'll always come out winning.

Hope this helped, Ann.

P.S. Happy Pico Day!

@ManuelTacoFace is right. I say you should do it. You can build your confidence with a few practice runs in private, I would think. Besides, at the end of the day, any &quot;shame&quot; doesn't go with you when you leave this earth. People will respect you for having the &quot;balls&quot; to come out and do it.
I know that I wanna die happy knowing I did what I loved and that people knew I did it.

Life is not a dress rehearsal, if you want to do it then do it &gt;:3

Yes, since why the hell not! Express yourself, in any way you find fit!

Dancing is one of the funnest things to do, it's so easy to put on a good playlist and go wild.

In this case, I'm accompanying myself (or at least, intending to).

Fuck what people think, or say.

Feel the music... move with the music. It's as natural as bobbing your head or tapping your foot to a beat you like. It's human. Dance like a hippie; feel in step with everything!!!

Perhaps I should let my own drumbeat carry me...

I have learned in my life that it is important to step out of your bubble. My brother and my friend helped me with this. There are many things in my life that I have regretted not doing because I was too timid. The old message still rings true though...

Until you try, you'll never know.

Seán is helping me on that front, finding places for me to record the dance. The light evenings are helping us quite a bit, and I might do something soon. Thanks though. Hopefully this bubble can burst at last.
