We are all living a ‘walter mitty’

We all live a version of a ‘Walter Mitty’ story in our heads, we create these fantasy versions of ourselves, that we act out in our heads, and in many way, in our actions and behaviours in the exterior world.

The challenge is though, that this ‘better’ or more exciting life/story that we create never really materialises and this leads to disappointment. We are dissatisfied, so we create a ‘better’ life, that never happens and then there is only further suffering, always seeking better rather than allowing the amazing human soul that we all are shine bright.

We expect that our ‘Walter Mitty’ life will become real, but it never does, and that leads to a feeling of lack and discontent. It becomes a spiral with no escape from these created personas.

If only we realised that if we let go of all the stories, the fantasies, the roles, the ‘Walter Mitty’ and actually let our true essence shine that we all have the most amazing life and journey to have.

When we are free from the burden of the stories, then we can be at peace within and then we can truly enjoy life now as our true self.

Worth a try?

What do we tell ourselves internally? How do we speak to ourselves?

My guess…we speak badly to ourselves, we tell ourselves all kinds of stories based on the psychological fears that our mind creates.

Interestingly we do not say good things to ourselves, we don’t focus being kind to ourselves.

This is a choice that we make every day, without hesitation, in our unconscious mind-state, we are not even aware of these repeating patterns, and we are not aware of the damage it does to our mental and physical health.

We could, of course, choose to become more conscious and step away from the unkind narratives. Just think how things would change if we decided to be kind to ourselves. Worth a try?
