Know that I value your voice. I may not always reply back immediately, but it's only because I'm thinking carefully about what you have said. I'm a slow replier because I like to make sure that what I have to say really does reflect what I actually think, and I want to find a way to articulate those thoughts in a way that will benefit all of you.
It's not fun feeling intimidated in the rehearsal room, but please don't feel that you're the only one! Everyone feels this way--it's just that no one likes to admit it!
Let's turn things around and realize that we're all in this together, so we might as well help each other!
