Favorite actress series | Emma Thompson: [On acting and appearance] “Acting simply cannot be about how you look. It would be very difficult to make a film where you have to be beautiful in every shot. You have to put so much effort into it; you have to hold your head at particular angles, put the light in a certain way and I don`t like acting like that. I like to act unconscious of how I look.” - Emma Thompson

"When you need me but do not want me, then I must stay. When you want me but no longer need me, then I have to go."

This quote from Nanny McPhee came to mind as I was thinking just now about messaging my therapist.

At the start of therapy, when I was struggling and needed to reach out because I couldn’t hold on to our connection, that was when I needed to contact her, but reaching out would turn into a massive internal battle over being able to let myself do it.

Now I feel quite comfortable reaching out to her and I think for me that may be a sign that I don’t need to do it quite so much. Hence the quote and the sad irony of the truth behind it 😥

But maybe….maybe this is just another dynamic of mine….a belief that if I can manage without something, I should. That life should always be about striving and trying. Maybe it’s alright just to lean into something and enjoy it for a while. That’s not indulgent or lazy. That’s ok.
