Building a Narrative, Finding Salvation

Today, while I was talking to my barber, I told her about myself, and she used this word, “Ambitious.” to describe me. She only knows me through my presentation, yet she attempts to prescribe a narrative as to who I am.

When I think about people I admire, I think of the elements that I admire; Long-term planning/action, strength and control, insight, genuine relatability, and many more. Most of these, I lack. So it is no wonder, why I admire to these people.

Much like the barber, I think we are all desperate to create someone. Someone who is better than us, who has better abilities than us, who can complete us.

Most attempt to find completion in marriage. Others, search for a father figure or acceptance from a father figure.
