"Me Again" 1 minute dramatic acting monologue for male or female actor

1 minute monologue

I struggle to feel in control of my life. Sometimes I feel like I am the only one not in control. Everyone else seems to have a say in what I do, how I act, where I go, who I see... why I exist. I’m the one who needs to decide why… why I continue to follow the herd… why I don’t break away and go my own way.

One day, I’m going to say no. It’s getting harder and harder to say yes to everyone. I’m pushed and pulled in so many directions that one day I’m going to break. I’ll break into a million pieces and they’ll cast me aside as useless. I’m tossed to the beasts as scraps where they strip away every last bit of usefulness. Then, and only then, after there is nothing left of my past, nothing more they can take from me... maybe I’ll be able to be me again.
