The Greek myth of “Procrustes and his bed” is a story worth telling. On the road to Athens, in ancient Greece, a person had to pass by Procrustes and his bed. Procrustes would place the person on the bed and cut off any part that did not fit his expectations. When a person was too short for his bed, he would stretch them until they did fit. He would continue the process of adjusting them until they finally fit all of his expectations. The myth clearly demonstrates the results of when we allow the expectations of others to define us. We cut off, stretch out, and bury important and powerful parts of our self to fit. The behavior of giving our power over to others takes root and steadily grows.
