Anyone who knows me in real life will tell you I'm super nice.... Some times I think a little too nice. I'm almost a door mat somedays and I think I let too many things roll off my back and I don't really speak up about them. And to some degree my boyfriend and I are very similar. But today bless his heart he had some (more then a few) that were really big that he needed to have addressed. So let me back up this story a bit.
I'm on dance team for college aged kids and all of us are friends who like to swing dance. So every year we decide to perform at the two local fairs and basically invite our families and friends to come and watch us. Now last year at both fairs I was only in one song each (different songs mind you). so after a whole year of working really hard I figured I'd be in a lot of numbers. Problem is even though I haven't missed a regular practice (there have been extra ones that I've had to work through but only a few) and yet I come to find out that if I'm lucky I'll be in two songs. That's it. While some who haven't been there as long as me are being in more songs then me. So tonight my boyfriend added my frustrations to his and had the courage to voice these concerns to one of our friends who is our co-captain of the group.
I know nothing is going to change prior to the show since we have two weeks to fix it. But Maybe- Just maybe it'll change in the future. If not I just don't think I'll be with the group all that much longer if that's the case. And to be honest I don't even know what to put out to the universe on this matter. If feels like I have no control to even guide towards a result.
