So I would say ever since I say the move The Truman Show (yeah, like 1999), I thought that plot could happen to anyone… Like, I dunno – ME!!
For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, basically the whole movie is about one guy that was the star of a TV show. So imagine your whole life, unbeknownst to you, was televised and everyone is watching it from the outside looking in. From birth, to now – a camera was watching you at all times, and everyone was watching YOU…
And then growing up, my dad always said, “This is your world, everyone else is just living in it.” And while that may seem like a harmless, encouraging thing to say – it definitely made/makes me think, “Imagine if in the Truman Show, HIS dad (or someone close to him) say that to him? That’d sure be ironic!”
Well how the flip do I NOT know that isn’t exactly what is going on every day!? It’s legitimately impossible and YEAH probably makes me a bit of a maniac.
So let’s just say it has always been in the back of my mind (and honestly I don’t think anyone could give me a legitimate explanation that would convince me otherwise) that this – LIFE – is just a reality show all about me.
Until proven otherwise, I think I’m pretty well dug in my trenches here.
Does this make me a huge narcissist that thinks the whole world, even just potentially, is all about him?? I don’t know, MAYBE… I’ll tell ya what though- if I’m right, and I am the star of a show, who figured out he was the star of his show, THAT would be pretty wild.
