It's no secret that Maddie Ziegler was Abby Lee Miller's go-to student as she felt that she can always count on the young dancer to nab the top prize. While the other moms demanded fair treatment, they didn't know that it wasn't all rainbows and butterflies for the "Book of Henry" actress being the teacher's favorite.

Abby Lee Miller is such a competitive person that she wants nothing but first prize in all dance competitions. Since Maddie Ziegler has already proven herself to be worthy of the 50-year-old dance instructor, choreographer, and director's trust, she gets all her praise and attention.

Instead of feeling good about being Abby Lee Miller's star student, Maddie Ziegler was beginning to feel the burden piling up on her shoulders. The 14-year-old dancer, actress, and model has previously revealed to People that she was in a lot of stress during her stint on "Dance Moms."

"I'm really glad that I've moved on from that," Maddie Ziegler shared. "I did learn a lot from her [Abby] and we did have like some fun times but I feel like now I've never been happier in my life." Being Abby Lee Miller's favorite, Maddie Ziegler was expected to win all the time.

Now that she's finally out of the dance competition scene, Maddie Ziegler shared that the pressure was certainly too much for her young self to handle. "I was stressed at 11 years old, which shouldn't happen," the "Dance Moms" alum added.

When the "Book of Henry" actress was asked if she will ever consider reuniting with Abby Lee Miller and her former ALDC Junior Elite Competition Team mates, Maddie Ziegler shook her head and firmly said, "I don't think so. I'm done with competing."
