That’s right. Are you running your own show? Or, are you allowing expectations, cultural mores, social media, family, friends, or others to influence the choices you make in a way that makes you feel like you cannot be authentic to you?
Sometimes when things aren’t going right, it is important to go back to basics. One of the basics is to identify where you allow the undue influences of others to cause you to feel that you don’t have choice or that your choices are limited. You are a creator – whether consciously or not. You have limitless choices. Of course, you also experience the consequences of those choices. But, you get to make them.
Yet, sometimes it feels like expectations and patterns are way too influential to overcome. So, you choose, but you choose a path that you wouldn’t have chosen otherwise. And, you feel bad about it, but you deal with it. Bah humbug!
Let me give you a recent pop culture example. The Bachelor. Yes, that’s right. The entire drama filled saga has been all over the airways for some time now – to the delight of some and the horror of others. It is what it is. Anyway, the bachelor – Colton – decided to choose what his heart told him to do which was to go off the established show path to the end, where the presumption is that the boy gets the girl of his dreams and they marry. I know… a ridiculous format, but it works for the show and for some of the participants. That aside, he told one of the final three gals that he wanted it to be only her at the end and he was willing to “give up” the other two right then – before the end of the show. This one gal had decided to break up with him because she felt she couldn’t meet the end expectation of a proposal and marriage. Colton told her she could take as much time as she wanted after the show to date and to explore their compatibility. After a lot of drama, it worked out. It didn’t fit the show’s expectation, other than drama. But it worked for both the main players and they are now exploring their future. They chose the road less traveled. They followed what they thought was the best way to go for them and not what was expected. They knew there would be backlash from social media, but chose to go the way that was personally best anyway. They were running their own respective shows. How refreshing!
So, are you running your show? I hope so. Just do a spot check and make sure you are the creator, director, producer, actor/actress, and audience.
That’s a big role but you can do it! And, it will bring you such joy and satisfaction. It will also spur your creativity to greater and greater heights. You will feel confident in you. And from that only more good will come.
