Sometimes, you break down in the middle of class. Honestly, it’s totally normal. This week, I didn’t get the best sleep, had period cramps, my calf had this weird pain, and my body wasn’t responding to what I needed it to do.
Ballet is no fairytale. It throws it’s punches, and you can either fight through it or it will crush you. Yes, I love ballet, but that doesn’t mean it’s always easy.
Thanks to the support of my teacher and my mom, I was able to continue and break through the pain and the exhaustion. If you don’t give up, you win.
