Changing Your Narrative
As an Asian-Canadian male, there’s a certain narrative that I inherit especially in Western society. For much of my life I’ve been fighting against this narrative, trying to prove them wrong. I’m sure anyone of a minority background can relate.
Our lives are shaped by the stories we tell ourselves. And the stories we tell ourselves are influenced by the people around us and the media. But yet, we are in control of our own narrative. Once we understand this fact, once we understand that no one’s story matters but our own, then that’s when we become our most powerful.
If you don’t control your narrative, other people will control it for you. This is one of the most important lessons I’ve learned this year.
