We all have our own self narrative; the story we tell ourselves about ourselves. Who we are. What we stand for. Why we are here. Where we are going. Whether or not that story matches with reality is an important point for introspection. Am I really the person that I tell myself I am, or the person I want to be, or the person I want people to think that I am? If not, why not? How can I move closer to being protagonist of my story? How can I make my story more dynamic?
Currently the character of my story has some pitiful traits and habits despite the loftiness of his aspirations, but if the story started out with our protagonist already able to do everything they set out to do, that wouldn’t be much of story now would it. It’s up to me though to decide where that inflection point is going to be.
