The self-concept is a lie. It is not who you are. You were never meant to play a role in this world.
Fletcher is going through a major unwinding process. His self-concept has been built on playing roles, people-pleasing, and lying. His son Max makes a birthday wish, after which Fletcher finds that he actually cannot tell a lie. For Fletcher it is a torturous experience as he believes that his private thoughts, little white lies, and half-truths keep him safe, loved, and employed.
Eventually, everyone must lay down the mask, give up trying to control their life, and tell the truth. Fletcher realizes that his lies have prevented him from having a life of true joy and intimacy. He finally lets go of all control and opens his mind to love. The truth will set you free and it won’t cost you anything!
