#3  Other people’s opinions of you are not your responsibility.  All you can do is present yourself in the best light by the way you live your life. Consider the source of any criticism or disapproval:  Is it really someone who’s opinion matters to you?  My friend, Kennedy,  used to sum it up so well: “Is my paycheck the same?  Yes?  Well, okay then…”  Not everyone whose opinion you value needs to be  someone who you work or audition for, but you can’t expend all your energy trying to please everyone you encounter, either.
