In today’s episode I’m continuing where I left off, teaching from Don Miguel Ruiz’s book, The Voice of Knowledge.
All human beings live in a story of their own creation. That goes for your family members too. You live in your own story. Your mother lives in her own story. Your family members all have their own story, their own beliefs, and their perceived role that you have.
For example, your mother can swear that she knows you well, but is it true? She has no idea what you have in your mind. She only knows what she believes about you…which means she knows almost nothing.
In this episode you’ll learn:
- You are a secondary character in another person’s story
- As a secondary character, you play a role for someone (e.g., your mother sees you as her son or daughter—she creates an image of you, and she wants you to fit the image she creates)
- Everyone in your immediate family has created a story about you—and a role—which began in your childhood
- That story and role begin to change as time goes on
- We live in an increasingly agitated society about what people believe—and many young people believe we can control what others believe, but they’re in for a rude awakening, because we cannot
Remember, everyone is dealing with their own individual story and how you show up in the role of that story. If you don’t show up according to someone’s story, they’ll feel hurt by you. They’ll try to make you fit their image of you. They’ll feel the need to control you, tell you what to do, and what not to do.
The best thing you can do is not to defend your point of view, but to change the conversation, enjoy that person’s presence, and love them anyway.
