The same happens to me, it drives me nuts when I take a class and the instructor wants me to learn all the patterns so I can become "better", I look at those around me that know more moves yet I'm still waiting for the better in them. I can't stand this attitude of self gratification as coming from the progress of that which we physically do! I must not settle for 30K, I have to make 100 Million to be deemed a success! This entire societal rules of the body being the worth of life dirve me crazy! It isn't enough that I'm having blast, enjoying the song to a "max", now I'm asked to be "better"by society's standards, to learn more, to compete so others can see how good I am! So I can have a fulfilled ego as to how far I've gotten, as if really my self worth and satisfaction is going to come from anything I physically do... PLeeeze!!!! I don't see life as other's do, don't try to impose your ways on me. I'm dancing for me, to enjoy myself, to seek a different reality. The last thing I will ever do is follow because my isntructor has followed too and believes that by following he can lead others... AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH To show me the light! To see what I don't see... yeap, this topic realy hits home!
