You get to point where the players on the stage start to become jaded.
After several months on the road, every play starts to take on a life of its own, partly due to fatigue, partly due to personalities creeping into stage characters.
Sometimes that is a good thing, it makes the play more ‘real’.
Other times, well, it gets ugly.
When it gets ugly, a producer has the option of cutting actors and replacing them: worst case scenario. OR taking a break and refocusing the cast on the intent of the script: best case but costly as it usually causes overbudgets.
What happens when the characters in your life start to get ugly? Kinda hard to replace them with new blood. Can’t go back and refocus on intent, especially when dealing with so many ‘individuals’.
Sick smart I was labeled. Delegate I was labeled. I accepted those roles, though I wasn’t aware that by doing so, I was ‘accepting’ a role as a follower, not the label presented.
Now, I am being labeled FRAUD and THIEF by that very same character.
Sorry, Leader I don’t want, FOLLOWER I will never be.
That leaves me the option of GET OUT OF THE WAY.
Do as you please Mr Nye. I don’t give a rats ass any longer. IF you wish to try and destroy the work I have done , have at. I think those that have actually met me, shook my hand, looked me in the eye, will find your efforts crude and, well, to put it quite simply, stupid.
Enjoy your life.
