Nothing and Something
The casting director says that I am too chubby for this role.
She doesn't like my creativity.
He thinks I don't have good taste.
She prefers to work with an extrovert.
He thinks that my drive is too much.
He hates my prudish side.
She says ‘what does she think she is’.
So what do these statements say about us?
Nothing, and perhaps if we allow, something.
Nothing, because it is only what some people think and project on us.
Something, because it is a chance to understand how we make others’ beliefs our own truths.
