This Question is For You

Have you ever felt like you’re living out someone else’s story, stuck in roles you didn’t choose? Maybe you’ve paused, mid-action, mid-decision, and thought, “Why do I react this way?” The answers could be buried in the unseen scripts of your past.

The Roles We Play

You might be the Helper, always putting others’ needs first, driven by an unconscious need to be needed. Or perhaps you’re the Controller, gripping life’s reins so tightly, terrified that letting go even a bit will lead to chaos. Maybe you see yourself as the Perfectionist, chasing the impossible dream of flawlessness, convinced that anything less is failure.

Are you the Achiever, constantly striving for success, always chasing the next milestone as if your worth depends on your accomplishments? Or do you identify as the Empath, so attuned to others’ emotions that you neglect your own, craving harmony at any cost?

These roles, shaped by childhood experiences, aren’t just passive traits; they’re the invisible strings guiding your actions, decisions, and reactions. They shape your relationships, dictate your career choices, and even influence your financial habits. You’re living a story scripted long ago, but it doesn’t have to stay that way.

The Helper

Imagine Sarah, a mid-level manager at a tech company. She’s always the first to volunteer for extra projects, often working late to help her team meet deadlines. Her colleagues rely on her, and she takes pride in being the go-to person. But Sarah’s drive to help stems from a deeper need to feel valued. She fears that saying “no” might lead to rejection or disappointment. This pattern, while making her indispensable, often leaves her feeling exhausted and overlooked for promotions because she’s seen as a support rather than a leader.

The Controller

Meet Lisa, a senior executive in a fast-paced marketing firm. She’s known for her meticulous planning and hands-on approach. Every project detail passes through her scrutiny. Lisa’s need for control is rooted in a fear of chaos and failure. She believes that if she doesn’t manage every aspect, things will fall apart. This relentless grip on control creates tension with her team, who feel micromanaged and stifled, and prevents her from delegating effectively, limiting her career growth.

The Perfectionist

Consider Emily, a high-performing analyst at a financial institution. She spends countless hours perfecting her reports, double-checking every figure, and ensuring every presentation is flawless. Emily’s pursuit of perfection is driven by a fear of criticism and failure. She equates mistakes with incompetence. While her attention to detail is commendable, it often leads to burnout and delays, impacting her productivity and work-life balance. Emily’s perfectionism also makes her overly critical of herself and others, straining workplace relationships.

The Achiever

Then there’s Natalie, a driven project manager in a consulting firm. She measures her worth by her achievements, always setting higher goals and pushing herself to exceed them. Natalie’s identity is tied to her success. She constantly seeks validation through accomplishments, fearing that without them, she’s insignificant. This relentless pursuit leads to stress and a lack of fulfillment, as she rarely takes time to enjoy her successes. Natalie’s need to achieve often causes her to prioritize work over personal life, impacting her overall happiness and well-being.

The Empath

Finally, meet Anna, a human resources specialist known for her empathy and people skills. She’s the office confidante, always ready to listen and offer support. Anna’s ability to tune into others’ emotions makes her highly valued but also vulnerable. She often absorbs the stress and emotions of her colleagues, neglecting her own needs. This can lead to emotional exhaustion and burnout. Anna’s desire to maintain harmony sometimes prevents her from addressing conflicts directly, which can undermine her effectiveness in her role.

Rewriting Your Script

Listen, understanding these patterns is the first step to breaking free. Recognize that you might be acting out a role that doesn’t truly align with who you are. This isn’t about blaming yourself or anyone else; it’s about gaining insight into why you do what you do.

Imagine the freedom of making choices based on your present desires and future dreams, not past scripts. Think about the genuine connections you could build when your relationships aren’t dictated by unconscious roles.
