What Is Main character Energy And Why It's All The Hype Right Now

It's hard to keep up with the trend made popular by the younger generation. Usually, they are easy to dismiss but lately gen Z has brought to the forefront an important issue that many of us grew up normalizing. We tend to go through life in a very mundane way, simply going through the motions. Before we know it we get to the end of it and realize we spent a lot of working or overlooking the details that made it beautiful

The main character energy trend is a way to hit pause and appreciate the little things while creating and manifesting the kind of life we desire. Here's how.

You Have To Start Romanticizing Your Life


This audio hits different ✨ #fyp #nature #travelthrowback #bucketlist #onelife #travel #newzealand #viral

Listen to the audio in the video above as the track goes: You have to start romanticizing your life. You have to start thinking about yourself as the main character," over an indie-looking film compilation.

This is just one example of a young woman living as "the main character" of her life. She is one of many other young adults and teenagers that have taken over Tiktok showcasing how to harness main character energy in their everyday lives to not only inspire others but themselves.

So what exactly is main character energy? You probably hear the kids throw it around and assume it's a shallow term that means posing for endless selfies to post for likes on social media. But that's not at all what this is supposed to be.

Main character energy is supposed to be symbolic of taking control of your life and putting yourself first. It's supposed to be showcasing how you can focus on yourself to result in abundance. It's meant to show that it is possible to manifest all your wants and desires. All you have to do is be the kind of "main character" you wish you could be because we're all capable of being one.

It's A Message Of Self Love

You might be thinking this is a way to endorse a shallow "the world revolves me" around me mentality, but then you would be missing the point. We get so caught up doing everything for everyone else, and keeping up with routine and chores that we forget to take care of ourselves and experience the beauty of the universe.

Yet our lives here are short, and we should be taking the time to dance in the rain, to run through fields of flowers, to sit on the edge of a cliff in solitude, to kiss the person that we love passionately, just like all these popular Tijtok videos feature. This is how we love ourselves. It's not just by doing yoga for 30 minutes while exhausted at the end of the day, it's by taking the tie to romanticize every possible moment.

It's A Way To Give Life Value

You are worthy. I am worthy. We are all worthy of being the main character. Demonstrating this worthiness isn't a call for attention or a way to gain popularity through likes. It's inspiring and motivating, and if you had main character energy you would know that.

This is a way to shift our perspective in terms of what we value and what we deem as a successful life. Remember that it's not enough to simply be alive if you're not truly living. Do you wonder how these women look so confident? It's because they are happy, and because they're going out of their way to show themselves all the reasons why they should be happy and grateful.

We Narrate Our Lives Everyday Anyway

It's true that the persona many people and influencers put up on social media is far from reality and even these videos romanticizing life exclude all the obstacles. But, if you think about it, we're each narrating our own lives every day anyway. From the first thing we do in the morning to what we wear, we're writing another page in our life's chapter.

By capturing some of those moments on tape, we're able to look at them from an objective perspective. We're able to see the bigger picture and realize nothing is that bad. We're able to create positive situations out of negative ones and flip our state of mind. Then by sharing these moments, we're able to connect with others and feel a part of each other's stories"

We're Each The Main Character Of Our Own Story

The beauty of this trend is that each being the main character of our own story, each story will be unique. There are no guidelines on how to make the plot interesting. it all depends on asking yourself if you were to watch your own life back like a movie, which parts would make you happy and to create more of them.

It's also about character building. How do you make your character grow? If your life was truly a movie, find a way to make it your favorite movie, with your own version of a happy ending.


The Strength Each Zodiac Finds When Grieving A Loss

Aries doesn't care to sugarcoat and avoid the hard truth. They prefer to act in the heat in the moment and cut right down to the chase. You know that when Aries go for a night out, they won't be shy away from their dancing their heart out. They take that same explosive energy wherever they go. When they're grieving, that's all they feel and they let themselves face it head-on until they can come to terms with it.

They may feel a lot of anger at first or a lot of sadness, and they may not deal with that component calmly but having the strength to be straightforward about their grief is what helps them let the feelings pass and move on.

Taurus: An Ability To Escape

A Taurus likely won't grief right away and try to keep their chin up. They might even try to console others first because the distraction helps them escape. When they're not helping others, they're going to want to disappear for a while, taking themselves on solo dates and watching movie marathons. They'll basically do anything to distract themselves and escape the pain.

However, their ability to escape is also their strength. It gives them a reason to keep going and eases them into adapting to a life without the person they lost gradually.

Gemini: Seeing The Good

Gemini will do their best to resist their grief. They would rather stay positive to cope. However, the more they avoid what's really on their mind, the more likely they are to be moody. However, when they chose to accept grief, they manage to always find a silver lining.

Their strength is in choosing to celebrate a person's life instead of mourning their death. To them, the end is not a loss because if they never had it in the first place they would have missed out on a lot.

Virgo can't come easily in terms of loss and death because they can't completely make sense of it. Their need for logic and order and can make them feel completely out of control when grieving. However, it is that same need for control that makes their strength.

​When we hear the word "manipulation" we tend to think of its negative connotation. But manipulation by definition is an ability to purposely mold. For Scorpios, manipulation isn't just getting what they want out of others. When grieving, they're able to manipulate their sadness with intention.

This comes in different forms. For instance, by spending time with animals, children, or loved ones, they're able to manipulate feelings of protection and love that heal both themselves and those around them.

Sagittarius: The Hunt For Happiness

Capricorns don't need external validation and motivation because they find it within themselves. They know the difference between what they can and can't control. They know they can't control a loss but they know that no one can take away the memories they created before they no longer could. So they chose to focus on what they can do.

They keep memories alive through pictures. They reconnect with people from their childhood or they pick up passions they left behind. This way, they connect back with themselves instead of caving to the loss.

Pisces: Just Keeps Swimming

Pisces just need to be reminded that no matter what happens and how bad it is, the world keeps going and so they need to be able to keep up with it. Usually, they can get to this stage before falling down a spiral. Instead, they chose to lose themselves in ways that feel beautiful to them.

They chose to keep swimming. They indulge in self-care methods like watching movies or spending quality time with others. Their strength is in jump-starting their healing process and their motivation to keep moving forward.
