He uses his father advice that it's not possible to make a living from entertainment as an insult. He scoffs at a doctor who tells him he has a pathological drinking problem and it's going to lead to certain death.
But instead of facing up to it with vulnerability and humility, he twists it into a delusional narrative. He'll prove his father wrong! Or he'll prove the doctor wrong about his prediction that his patholical drinking will lead to death.
It seems that he is is suggesting a coping mechanism for these negative emotions he feels. And he copes by avoiding them or constantly improving because if he ever stops then it will be never ending shame, sadness, anxiety etc.
And the cost of this is not being free anymore, and being driven by negative emotions, hyper sensitive to critism, to not being liked, to making mistakes or having flaws. That is no way to live.
Auf jeden Fall empfehlenswert!
