I Want Daddy To Take Charge

So I’ve been sending out pitches about my Alexander Technique practice to various pain clinics in Los Angeles and I have this fantasy that some doctor is going to email me back and say, “Come see me!”

I’ve never done well chasing business. I’ve always been best suited to a job with a regular pay check. I have this fantasy that some pain clinic is going to snap me up and I’m going to have an office to go to every day with a regular pay check every two weeks.

It’s like I have this fantasy of somebody taking charge of my practice and saying, ok, you’ll do things this way.

All my life I’ve been chasing father figures. I like men in authority. I like to learn from them. I like to follow them.

Then eventually, I go my own way. This often looks like betrayal, but “betrayal” is just a dramatic term for when other people don’t have the priorities you expected.
