I really want to act but cant let go of how stupid it feels. The whole thing gives me anxiety for some reason and I think its because I can't understand it. In this sort of mindset I become hyperware of the audience observing rather than the performance itself.
David Bryne came closest to explaining "it" to me when he said "Stop making sense, nothing about performing makes sense".
I really want to know what it means to love acting and enjoy art but I cant get over this feelng. Some people can just do it for some reason without question. I know most of you are going to say "just do it", and I don't have a problem with that since its probably what I'm going to end up doing, but I want to understand my current position. I feel like Im being torn into two different personalities, one resisting what seems dangerous, the other willing to take the risk. Has anyone ever felt like this?a

JUST DO IT

And maybe seek a therapist.

Have you ever listened to the song from A Chorus Line. I think it's Calle d"Nothing" about how this actor is trying to act but feels nothing, and then eventually gets over it? Listen to that.

Modern acting requires a kind of elective schizophrenia. One half of you has to be immersed in the character, to make your performance as real and natural as possible. The other half has to be aware you're acting, monitoring your performance technically, making sure you feed the others the right cues, picking up on audience reaction and the like.

How to do both of those things is what a lot of formal acting training is about. Have you taken serious training, or are you just an enthusiastic amateur? You have to be taught how to do exactly those things you currently don't know how to do.
