Are you conscious of the various roles that you play in your life?
Are you aware of the extent to which you play out these roles, and identify yourself with these roles?
Are you aware of what you sacrifice when you play out these roles to the letter?
If you think of the various roles that you could play, we are mostly trying to a ‘good’ something:
Good mother/ father
Good employee/ employer
And we are trying to get it all right
Just do life in general RIGHT!
THE ROLES YOU PLAY
Along with this can come quite a bit of anxiety as we move through the world, as there is always the possibility for this to NOT happen - we don’t fulfil the roles in the ways that we think that we should and get it wrong!! What happens? Well the opposite of good, right? We feel bad!
If you do really take the time to look at the way that you move through the world, it will be apparent that these are roles that you have adopted are based on what you have learned. Essentially you assume you need to play these roles, to act and be a certain way, otherwise…… Not sure, something vague and scary, something unarticulated, but the assumption is that it will be some sort of negative consequence if you don’t do it exactly as the role says you must. So we hold onto the roles, and we become a bit like Gollum with the ring in Lord of the Rings, holding onto something that completely DISTORTS who we actually are, so much so that we don’t even know who we would be without it!
