Letting go

If you completely abandon your compulsive preoccupation with your mental/emotional versions of yourself, with their endless ambitions and the constant flow of problems that arise because of them, it’s an absolute shock! You will find that they were completely fictitious–they never existed in the first place. They were just part of some bad movie you saw at some point, continued to replay, and came to believe in. That may be an especially rude shock if they have been the center of your attention, as they have for practically everybody, all of your life, for ten, twenty, maybe fifty years or more. But, better late than never. (It’s not wasted, at any rate, for you will be potentially of great help to anyone else who is trying to find their way out of all this culturally created confusion.)
