As an actress you must spend your life between fantacy and reality. What is it like to act in a love scene? How do you fake it?

Non abortire dai..pensa che ci sono persone che non hanno che una casa di paglia..e possono fare figli..tu hai tanto !!ma non te ne rendi conto..e smettila di vivere nell'oblio..spero che stai recitando..che sia tutto falso..

Qua non c'è nemmeno una persona possa essere un amico tuo..nessuno ha detto una parola sul tuo possibile aborto..questi sarebbero amici? Che ti elogiano quando dici una stronzata e pensano sempre che sei un genio? Ma dai.. Spero che leggi quello che scrivo..

C'mon Asia, if you think youre so terrible you can try to do something about it. Live more, work less. Try to spend more time with the people you love. I know it all sounds easy but saying youre terrible does not bring you anywere. I hope youre daughter shows you the opposite!

the more the afternoon has worn on the more I am interested to hear your thoughts on faking it,in a world where reality is hard to recognize.

I feel the same, more often than not. I have a job that I enjoy and I'm able to take care of my mother and help my brother...yet, not a day goes by where I don't feel like a failure on some level, but talking to my family, being around my family helps that. All I can suggest, if I may be so bold, is that you should spend more time with your loved ones, as much as you can stand. The fact that they exist and love you may be the salve you need. Maybe you and Annalou could work together on a book or a collection of short stories not for publication...just something for the two of you to share. I don't know...simple suggestions from a simple girl.

"Every good thing unfortunately must come to an end with a severe penalty of which to pay.... the most unbarable, frustrating, claustrophobic, long lasting feelings that follow. This feels like "im trapped in a world that doesnt exist anymore," and it doesnt seem like a fair exchange. Its like being a ship & the past is the anchor, drifting away from it only so far, & right when feelings of detachment & curiousity arrive to see whats beyond this current state, it seems to pull back with an undeniably grasping force and fury."

Keeping yourself busy will not help the moments in between the busy-ness. xx

You don't seem too eager to lie back and do nothing, and anything but that seems like work to me. Maybe just find out what's keeping you from working and living at the same time and get rid of it.

hello my friend... i mirror your thoughts on occassions as does 's'. ultimately though, i have 's' who tells me i am not a failure; she has me to tell her she is not a failure; and likewise you have us to tell you, you are not a failure; if you were here you would tell us that we are not failures; and we would tell you that you are not a failure. we 3 can be trinity and rise above it all ; ) your friend, billy23 - the portals kid xxxxxx
