Kill Prince Charming
We tend to turn many aspects of our lives into “Prince Charming”—whether it’s a romantic partner, a job we aspire to or hold onto, a boss we idolize, a family member we rely on, or even the notion of some future prospect for our life. We lean on these various forms of Prince Charming to keep us steady, to be our crutches, to save us, to bail us out. Make it a mantra: we have to kill Prince Charming. We have to kill the fantasy because it keeps us small. There are no bailouts, excuses, or saviors. There is no rescue fantasy. There is only YOU.
